Hi Lin,


Thank you for posting, and sorry to hear that you found it difficult to study. We do have lessons where the instructors talk with one another while teaching you various words and phrases, maybe that may be of help.


Sincerely,

Lyn

안녕하세요 !


I'd bring back all of them! :smile: But I'm especially interested in 유과 and 홍초 . I think the food souvenirs are great, and I would sure love to try all of them. Shall I tell you something? I'm having this weird, strong craving for 양념치킨 , and I have NO idea why....:sweat_smile:


Anyway, this was another really interesting lesson.


감사합니다 !
