미안하다! I disappeared for a bit with no warning. Just so you all know I am totally okay! (Sorry if I worried you.) I was completely overwhelmed and even though I thought I was ready to come back full force to blog… I really wasn’t. However, I spent some time getting my thoughts together (and my schedule) and now I’m ready to work. In that time I was doing some research and talking to some friends about my blog and the direction it was headed and came to the conclusion that was very hurtful but needed… I’m not really teaching useful things which is why I was overwhelmed. My lessons, even though have been helpful grammatically, they aren’t very practical. Like, you can’t just take a lesson and use it that day. They involved so much research and it was stressful because sometimes the lessons were even over my own level of understanding. Like if the top level of Grammar is a 20 I’m somewhere are at 9 or 10 teaching level 18 material. So, I kinda have to readjust a bit.
So with the help of friends and (lots and lots of research) these daily lessons will be more practical. With that being said, for now, the Grammar of the Week lesson will be going away and replaced with “Weekly Lessons” since I’m not doing too much grammar anymore. There’s a ton of grammar lessons on here for now and a lot of resources out there that can go in more depth and probably explain it way better than me. But if you want more grammar lessons or more resources, please feel free to ask me! Comment or email, firstname.lastname@example.org. I respond to all messages and emails so if you have a question I’ll answer it and if I can’t answer it I know people who more than likely can.
So what’s up with these “Weekly Lessons”?
Well, these “Weekly Lessons” will be more practical. As in, you can read a post and use it that day! The Word of the Day will remain but it will be an actual word! And when I say A word I mean One word. I had a habit of doing like 5 words everyday and honestly, that’s a lot. So I’m going to actually cover words you can use with an example or two using that word in a sentence. So the lessons may or may not be linked each week but it’s something for everybody. There won’t be any themes for now. I’m just testing everything out right now and as we all get adjusted then I’ll probably do like a weekly theme for the WOTD or something.
I don’t know what’s going to happen to “Kpop Teaches Korean Too!” It may go away and be replaced by videos on YouTube that do the exact same thing or I may still do them, for now, I don’t really know. It’s on standby.
I will be doing Cultural posts again. I missed doing those and so they will be coming back but with an upgrade. Instead of just “Culture in Korea” like arts and music, I’m going to actually talk about customs and traditions. Things that you can actually use when you go out and about in your city or if you happen to travel to Korea.
Annnndddd… I think I’ll be bringing back Kpop News but only for new music and dramas. I’m not a gossip blogger so that’s not happening again. That was way too much work and I honestly was getting annoyed doing it. So it’ll be a weekly or bi-weekly post about new music and new show updates.
I think that’ll be more helpful and more practical and not so stressful.
Alright! So that’s the 23rd update and new post coming on Saturday!
