There is no argument that I am not a walking dictionary. Nor do I absolutely insist that I am a speaker of highly sophisticated choices of vocabulary. Yet, what I do insist is the fact that I don’t have very much difficulty in communicating English. One thing that bothers quite often is the fact that many Koreans in the path of acquiring English try to memorize English words even I haven’t heard..
As I look across Han River, I suddenly realize how green the riverbanks are. Suddenly I notice it, because looking at it everyday I didn’t catch the slow coloring of green. Although the night wind still keeps the cardigan close at hand, no one can deny the summer too is close at hand. Don’t be shy, but be romantic. Enjoy the last springing of green and the warmth of summer. Today gone will never..
I left my car parked for two weeks without using it. When I went to it couple days ago, I find the back window broken to pieces. There are couple of dents right above the back window on the roof. Obviously someone either accidentally or intentionally broke it. I’d imagine it’s more of accident. Hell, but no note’s been left on the car. I don’t believe this!!! To whoever broke it...up yours “ㅗ”.
Why do you think that your English isn’t progressing? Or, at least you feel that you aren’t retaining what you have acquired? Today, let’s look into the part 1 of today’s subject ‘Here & Now’. When I say ‘Here’ here, I mean the close proximity of your life. One of the main reason that you don’t progress with English is because you may be looking for answer at the wrong place. Are you are attendi..
The soft rhythm of the rain caressing the tin roof awakes me from the monitor. Grabbing a cancer stick, I stepped out into the opening to welcome the sound of Spring. Ahh~~ It’s the spring rain. I feel the wave of emotion taking over me and tears swell in my eyes. Spring in the West starts in March(northern hemisphere). In Korea, it starts from 立春. In the West, the season is in the sky, or the h..
The best way of ‘best speaking’, ‘best reading’ and ‘best writing’ is making it SIMPLE and keeping it SIMPLE. I find too many people not understanding this critical point of improving the English language skill. You say, “I know this!” But, do you practice it? If your English is not improving as well as you would want it or think it should, then I’ll bet you a buck that you ain’t keeping things ..
Let’s talk about 미국식 영어 對 영국식 영어 this time. There are indeed differences between these two. And they are also different from other countries that observe English as the main language, eg Australia, NZ and… India. There is a joke about English, with variation from place to place, that English was born in England, raised and prospered in America, retired to Australia and got sick and died in India..
I often am asked the question. “영어 어떻게 하면 잘 하나요?” Hmmm… People! Please ask me more specifically! Being good in English is not something that you go down to a convenient store and buy a pack of it. As difficult as it is to be good in English, let’s take one step at a time. In what sense do you wanna to be good at? Do you wanna write good? Do you wanna speak good? Or, do you wanna have grand-daddy..
When I was first asked to fill a section here to cover business English, I was a little dazzled. After all, I ain't much of a writer. I still don't know at this point whether if I should be amongst these word-nerds. But after a short, yet intense, lip-whipping persuasion, I accepted with overflowing honor. I actually begged for it in the end. Well, thought to myself, I do brag about how good I a..
