Day 6: Language Links

On my way home today, I took a few shots of my condo entrance with my Lumia 640.

I know most folks are probably wondering, “Why would she want a pic of the letter E?”

You may see an ‘E’ , but I see the Korean letter ‘T’. It’s missing a vowel (because in Hangul/Korean consonants can not stand alone) though. Funny enough, on the wall adjacent Β to it is the letter ‘A’, which I now translate to ‘ㅏ’. Or to ‘ㅐ’

One of my goals is to learn to properly read, write, and comprehend Hangul someday. So I have started to learn the alphabet πŸ™‚

Honestly – it makes lots of sense (the Hangul alphabet) when you break it down. For me now it’s a matter of practicing daily, working on my pronunciation, and memorizing words. As well as their many, many meanings!

For example, did you know that ‘Bae’ means belly and pear in Korean? So depending on the conversation, that could get really interesting πŸ˜‰

A few weeks ago, I started Sarang Hallyu so I can have a place to talk more about why exactly I am learning Korean. You can check out my first vlog below:

There will be more discussions about this topic from me coming soon (and I would love to hear your thoughts and/or experiences as well!), but for now I leave ya’ll with a few links that I have begun to connect in my mind.

Someday in the future I will be a Konglish speaker ya’ll πŸ™‚

 

How do ya’ll connect these days? Is there something others may find odd that you connect with? Let me know in the comments!

Music has always been a part of me. No matter how many times I would try to pursue a career in something else I would find myself coming right back to it. So now I am done with running scared. I was all in on this journey. And I'm so glad that I saw it through, because it lead me to something that I love. Something that I didn't think was possible - the ability to become a self published author. For years I have written poems, my thoughts, short stories, and songs. Really it was just therapy to me, but now I want to see where else it can take me too. So I'm learning the social media ropes thanks to all these social media outlets. Also working up my nerve to face the networking scene for the artists and musicians in my hometown too. All with the hopes of connect with others who love music as much as I do. And to make some coin by music and write freelancing. Let's see what happens, shall we?
