My music hobby:)

I love music, as long as there is music, i wouldn’t feel bored. I can dance, sing and play along with all sorts of music:) I had been playing guitar since primary 3, which is 7 years ago! I love my guitar^^ ❤ But i have to admit though, that i am no pro in guitar as i did not really go through any professional guitar lessons:( I did learn for 2 years in my primary school before though, but it was just to let the students have some rough knowledge about guitar, that’s all. Anyway, i’m trying to pick up a new instrument now 🙂 The keyboard! As usual, i always self-learn online:) I learnt a lot of things online as i would like to save up to go korea someday… Other than playing instruments, I also like singing^^ Oh My Godddd!!!! I seriously sing EVERYDAY! I’m serious. Even my parents are saying that i’m too noisy:-P but i still continue singing hahaha :-p I am in choir as CCA and is currently having lots of fun there! XD I get the chance to perform and i enjoy it a lot! I had been trying very hard to learn korean songs to prepare for my SM/JYP/LOEN Ent audition, so i really hope everything goes well… Oh 1 more thing that i luv is dancing! I had been in dance for CCA in primary school and same as choir, i totally luv it! It is awesome! Eventhough the sort of dance they taught was more to Indian dance, but what i really love is Hip-hop, but i still enjoyed it a lot! It was a totally different experience for me:)  I had been trying to learn hip-hop online from some websites and from youtube as my parents apparently refuses to let me have dance lessons so that’s the only way i can learn it:( Better than nothing at least:) So as you can c, I really have lots of passion for music, dance, and singing and had really been putting in a lot of effort to prepare for my audition, eventhough my parents don’t really support me, but i really hope that my determination will persuade them to let me persue my dreams… 🙂 Goodluck to myself:)

Websites#1

http://www.learn-korean.net

Awesome things about it:

This is the 1st website i found when i first started learning Korean. It teaches different levels of korean ranging from basic to advanced. I think it is quite a good website as it not only teaches you korean, it also allows you to communicate and ask other members questions if you are to sign up as a member. It’s classes are easy to follow too:-) And most importantly, it is free of charge! Hahahaha^^

Things to improve on:

I think overall, this website is quite a good platform for learning Korean, however, I have some things that i am not really satisfied with. It is just my personal opinion. I started out being very excited at first, but as i study on, I started to feel bored throughout the lessons and cannoreally concentrate. All they have is just words, WoRdS and MORE WORDS!!! Also, they tend to squeeze everything into one page and everything is sooo crammed up together:( But other than that, I think it is quite good for learning Korean:-)

Some suggestions:

Personally, i think it would be good if they add in more pictures to accompany the lessons rather than all so wordy. It would also be good if there are some audio for us to listen to:)

It is a shopping paradise. The largest market in South Korea, the Dongdaemun Market, is located in Seoul. Myeongdong, where all the fashion boutiques and international brands are all located there. Also the namdaemun market which is the oldest continually running market is in Seoul. For younger people to shop, there is the Sinchon. Insadong, where it sells all the traditional stuff about Korea, and Itaewon, caters more to tourists. Most important, there is the Times Square, with the largest shopping mall in Seoul, and the largest cinema.

Seoul is a must visit place when you go Korea:)
