Progress Learning Korean

It has been about 2 years and 4 months since I started studying Korean. I started in February 2016. Since then, I've studied at least 15 mins every single day. I probably average 30 minutes to an hour of focused study and passive listening every day.

Learning a foreign language definitely does not come naturally to me. It's extremely slow going, but I've been really enjoying learning.

I meet with a tutor on iTalki at least 2 or 3 times a week to practice speaking and to learn grammar.

I'm happy to report that today's lesson with my iTalki Tutor was very encouraging! I was able to form sentences well enough to describe what I did over the weekend and he was impressed! So impressed, in fact, that he said that he thought I had "leveled up" in my speaking!

I'm still very far from my goal of being able to understand and speak conversational Korean, and it's been a lot more difficult than I thought. But it was definitely encouraging that my speaking is getting better!
