Just realized i don't think i ever shared my Korea pics here. I think i may have shared them on another forum, so if you've seen these elsewhere, then sorry.:wiggle:

Anyways, i visited South Korea about a month and a half ago now. I absolutely loved it. Anyways, here's some random pics to share:

1. Somewhere between San Francisco, and Incheon South Korea

:mamoru:

i was only there for 11 days, but i was determined to atleast learn handful of korean words/phrases. I wish i had learned more. I even learned to read Hangul a little bit as well, so long as they were english words written in hangul lol :o
I've been here almost 9 months and I know a few dozen words at most. I can read Korean though, learning Hangul is pretty quick... but yeah, you're right, it doesn't help that much if you don't speak Korean :o

yeah, i probably only know about 30 or so words/phrases.

what city are you teaching in? We spent most of our time in/around Pohang, which is where my cousin is currently living/teaching.
