I have the motivation but trying to do needlework at the same time you are reading subtitles is an exercise in poor eye health. (walleyes) WHICH is why I am learning Korean!
(Note that she does not say to watch LESS kdramas, just learn Korean so one does not have to read subtitles any longer!) Therefore, I am MOTIVATED to learn Korean so I don’t have to read subtitles! And it’s working! I am not fluent but I kinda know what people are talking about even if I can’t give the exact translation (Fire me at the UN!) mm… I can pick out the ‘base’ word units but the finer grammar points I haven’t mastered yet. Give me another year. (That’s as long as I study and don’t hang out here )
I study every day at least a little and often for a few hours. But mostly, I listen to conversational YouTube stuff along with the kdramas and KPOP.
