Quick study entry:

I haven't done much in the way of studying this month, although I've kept up with my vocabulary reviews and I went ahead and memorized chapter 4 vocabulary a couple weeks ago. Yesterday I studied -을 줄 알아요 and -을 줄 몰라요 (to know how to do something/to not know how to do something). Today I learned -아야/어야 해요 (must/have to/should/ought to do something). Both topics make sense but I worry that I will forget them in practice. I need to sit down and do a thorough review of my textbooks. Maybe I should write up a new Anki deck and include grammatical examples? Hmm. I'll just try to do a bit more in my textbook every day. I should finish chapter 4 by the end of the week, then I'll start the vocabulary for chapter 5. Maybe one chapter a week is a reasonable goal? Hmm.

I think I'm going to try studying for the TOPIK exam. That's a standardized Korean test. I just watched this and I understood every bit of the grammar and vocabulary - all of which was, admittedly, basic - and I learned a bit (specifically, 과). I will try watching maybe one episode a day. Eventually I'll try taking the actual exam... I think I need a real goal to aim toward. My current method of studying is just meandering along until I get bored, which is useless and won't help me learn.
