Language Study Plan(GKS)

Before coming to Korea:

  • I am quick learner when it comes to languages. I know English, Hindi, Odia and Sanskrit. So, it won't be tough for me to learn Korean.
  • I taught myself Hangeul through YouTube Videos (Talk to me in Korean) and then started reading children’s story online to enhance my ability to recognise the letters.
  • I then took an online course in Udemy for fundamental Korean pronunciation and survival phrases. Some of them includes self-introduction, How to ask people about something, How to ride a bus, How to order food in a restaurant and etc.
  • Learning Korea is in my daily list and hence I practise 20-30words everyday on an app called Memrise. Through the app I also started to learn the local pronunciation of words.
  • To learn more about Korean cuisine and culture, I also watch a lot of meokbang and vlogs.
  • I'm learning the language more quickly and effectively thanks to the podcasts I'm listening to on Spotify.
  • I had a strategy to be ready beforehand so that I wouldn't encounter difficulties in daily life until I had mastered the language.

After coming to Korea:

  • At initially, I had intended to read the books I would be given at the language institute.
  • I also considered going to a bookstore to read some Korean history books printed in Hangeul. This will improve my reading fluency and help me learn more about the regional lifestyle.
  • My first target is to complete Topik Level 3 within 3 months and then prepare myself for Topik level 5 for the next three months. So that I could join in and begin my studies at my degree-granting institution within six months.
  • To get a feel for the test format, I even attempted to answer the TOPIK previous year exam and listen to the audio.
  • Increasing my vocabulary is constantly on my to-do list, and even if I were to enlist in an undergraduate programme, I would still do this.
  • I had intended to talk to my teacher and friends about the topics I would not grasp. Since, I would be able to learn more about the language through discussion.
  • Every weekend, I intended to travel and put to action the ideas I had learnt throughout the week.
  • I've already prepared a list on visiting to the neighbourhood market with my pals and interacting with the vendors there in order to learn more about the true ethnic makeup of the country's residents.
  • Since , I've discovered that professors in Korean universities use Hanja characters in their lectures. I made the decision to learn Hanja in addition to Hangeul. And hence, I wouldn't have any problems in my degree-granting institution.
