100 Days Korean

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

I've been already learning Korean for 2 years, however recently I've read some articles about how shorter, but more intensive periods can help you 'dramatically' improve and I wanted to test that.


Today, my Korean practice consisted of watching an episode of Produce 101 S2 without subtitles. And while I do not intend to become a K-pop idol, and thus you could argue about the usefulness of this activity, it's interesting to memorise the vocabulary of such a TV programme, like: to reveal, in the future, elimination, to drop, modest or attitude. See, it's not so useless, on the other hand, it's easy to pick up, because they keep repeating these expressions throughout the various episodes of a roughly 2-hour programme. I also want to clarify, that I do not have magical listening skills, Korean TV programmes are almost fully subtitled in Korean, so I just have to freeze the screen and see in writing what a contestant says.
