Went to my first Korean class on Tuesday night. My new pal Carlos showed me the place, in a community center in the central business district in Changwon. Numerous foreigners were there, each working with a Korean volunteer. It reminded me a quite a bit of my language class in Motomiya-Machi that I started attending my third year in Japan.
What did I learn you ask? Well, some of the vowels and consonants in the Korean Hangul Alphabet! Korean, it seems, has several consonants that don't exist in English, and hearing the differences between them proved quite a challenge. I'd sort of picked up on this just listening to people tell me names and things, but I'd never had it formally explained before. We'll see.
They all seem like nice friendly people, and they seem to be quite an active group that does a lot of different events. Hopefully I can make some friends here. Perhaps they'll motivate me to start learning Korean!
