I'm living and working here in Korea up in some deathly isolated apartment complex in 경기도양주시, I've been here about 8 and a half months now. At the rate at which I'm learning Korean, Koreanclass101 Intermediate level seems to be just right, so this place is cool.
Hi everyone, I didn`t check if I have to introduce myself, sorry !
I`m French too ㅋㅋ, donc salut a tous les francophones ! Hi to everyone speaking French. I plan to make an internship next year so maybe I will have the chance to say "Yeah I live in Korea ! That`s great !!"
hyunwoo-> Hi I read your introducing about masterin 10 languages I said to myself "Oh, he`s great !!". Because languages are my passion. Now Korean is my 7th languages (5th languages without my 2 native languages). But this is quite difficult to master all those languages. So nevermind, as long as I can speak it`s OK.
But Korean is special for me so I plan to speak as fluently as that I-didnt`t-know-her- before Ida Daussy Hey why not ?? She did it, so why not me too ? ㅋㅋ
This is my firt message, and I hope there will be others, I fell in love with this website and everyone look so kind !
Bye, see you all, and long live Busan (yeah seems like Southern France and the city of my 여자 친구 )
Bonjour cher nouveau francophone! Bienvenue! Is your girlfriend a Marseillaise? I am a "part-time" Marseillaise Vive le OM! (I have to say that or my residency card will be revoked...hahaha! Just kidding.)
What level are you at in Korean? I am a beginner. I wonder what it is about Korean that attracts all the francophones...very mysterious. But it's a good thing.
We are all very kind, unless you call me 아줌마...then I'm not kind
On Skype, I'm nenuphar_ (just like that with the underline character ending)
Bonjour norottearu! Sorry, that's all the French that I know Welcome to the site, and thank you for commenting. If you have any questions, we're always here to answer them. And even if some of the staff doesn't get back to you right away, our community is really excellent and very helpful too!
But I agree Bouks. There's something with Koreans and the French. Many French people that I've met have been very interested in Korean. I think one of the reasons for this maybe because of the recent success of Korean directors in Independent Films (Cannes Festival). But that's a total shot in the dark!
Hi ! It`s been a long time I came here ...
That`s quite funny/weird for me to have a reply from you since I listen to you everyday with the podcasts I have to admit I enjoy listening to your podcasts, and I wonder if the students here at my university think of me as a mad guy when I`m laughing on my own listening to my pods... By the way is Miss Yun Seol there in the forum too ?
Anyway bonsoir Bouks and Keith So yeah I`m a beginner, but becoming a false beginner or more (I hope) if I`m constant in my efforts. Since I know Japanese, this is very helpful, and memorizing hanjas pronunciation makes me learn more vocab naturally just by adding 2-3 sounds together. Thanks a lot Japanese, you made the work easier
Concerning the attraction, um, I think that Asian countries are very attractive for us, the same as European countries are attractive for Asian people. But as Korea, and Korean is concerned, I had interest long time ago because of the weird (not negatively ) alphabet. Japanese and the my 2 others language studies taking me all my time, I couldn`t afford to learn a new one. And then a Korean awoke my interest, and thanks to her, and other circumstancies, now I`m finally learning Korean ! Yeah !!!! And as Keith said Korean films are quite popular for those who know the quality of the scenario. I cannot forget Old Boy for that reason !
Bouks-> Yeah she`s a Marseillaise, a Korean Marseillaise A true 부산인
아줌마? I prefer to say 누나, or even 누님, I like the sound
