이거 뭐라고 해요?

(Translation: What is this called?)

So another week, and another Korean lesson. But a self-taught lesson this time, as last Sunday only my teacher showed up to the class. Leaving one teacher and three students with vastly differing skill levels. (Possibly – the one student is clearly more advanced than me, and I believe I’m more advanced than the other student. But that student’s writing a thesis on bio-technology or something, so he’s busy advancing his career. I’m just trying to avoid having to choose one.) So class was kiboshed and we were instead taken to Deokjin Park to stroll around. Which was strange because while it’s nice to hang out with people (in theory; at least that’s what I’ve been told), but I didn’t really learn anything new or review anything old.

To make matters worse, my teacher (who’s a actual Korean teacher in “real” life) has some sort of school trip this coming weekend. So I’ll be paired up with a different teacher come this Sunday.

Refusing to accept fate’s hand, I’m using this week to continue practicing my 13 or so Korean phrases as well as add a few new ones to the mix. Because I’ll be damned if I’m gonna sit stagnate for two weeks.

Fun fact: my teacher did seem surprised that I have listened to as much K-Pop as I have. Though, really, knowing 2NE1 should be a given the world over, as Crush is amazing, and Boa who, while batting 50/50 on the albums of her’s I’ve heard, is still awesome enough for me not to give up hope.
