trust me you're not alone...remember this is only the active forum community posting and doesn't represent all of the students learning from KC101 in the world. KC101 has a lot of followers worldwide who don't post in the forum.
I don't want to speak out of turn but I can say that last summer I ran into a downright genuine, awesome group of people all in your position (but from America). We were all attending the same korean language program (in Seoul) so it was all good!
and speaking of your experiences in restaurants, ( http://www.koreanclass101.com/forum/vie ... =6632#6632 ) some of my friends had the same problem. We came up with interesting reasons for how quiet they were at the table. excuses ranged from being on his cell phone to claiming he was chinese.
Yeah, I figured that.
And as for being Korean, but not speaking the language fluently, I dunno what I'm going to do if I ever go there! LOL. If I have problems in a mere restaurant, I don't know how I'll cope in the actual country! LOL.
