KOREAN LANGUAGE LESSON
& Korean/American Cultural Exchange
Our "Happy New Year" first Sunday meetup of 2014! 새 해 복 많이 받으세요!
Let's learn how to say the traditional "Happy New Year" greeting: 새 해 복 많이 받으세요 (sae hae bog manh-i bad-euseyo)! You can also prepare by watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKaScJqK5kY
Studying a language requires exposure to the language. Make time to hear and speak the Korean language, to help yourself learn.
Whatever your level, join us as we explore the Korean language and culture. This is a good event for people to attend for their first meetup! Hundreds of people have attended since we started the event in 2012... our most popular event series.
Can't read the headline for this event? The Korean hangul characters "스터디 모임" we learned in an earlier meetup means "study moim" or study meeting/gathering.
도와주시겠어요? Native Korean language speakers welcome to join us as well, to help us learn the difficult parts of Korean, and to find language exchange partners & meet new friends.
Post if you need a metro station or other pickup.
The location has been nice to allow us to meet there, because it helps to give us a place to gather at no cost. If you attend you do not have to buy anything, but it helps if you do! They have a nice selection of items, and it is a small business with people who live in our area. Also, health studies show we are happier when we help others. Buying for another person can improve your happiness, and being happy has been shown to help with things like learning languages.
The event usually lasts for about 2 hours, and many people join for a dinner after the event at a local restaurant (usually Korean food). The dinner location isn't usually decided until after the event starts, and we sometimes get special discounts or other benefits.
