Mood: thoughts

- reviewed Anki vocabulary (~1.5 hours)
- listened to dialogues and story 2 times each, read over them, worked on pronunciation, translated, and listened again (1 hour)
- transcribed dialogues and story from unit 3 (1 hour)
- Pimsleur Unit 1 Day 6 (30 minutes)
- watched one episode of Coffee Prince (1 hour)
Total: 4 hours/5 hours

I don't know if I should include entertainment time in my studying. Sure, it's Korean, and I'm trying to make out words (often to no avail), but it's not, well, active studying. If I could figure out a way to make this active it'd be good. I wonder if the transcripts are on the internet somewhere? Hmm.

Sorry I keep posting my study schedule here. I signed up for a language forum on which I intend to post my daily schedule but I need to wait for my account to be approved. I also need to practice my speaking skills. I don't know if they've improved at all... probably not since I haven't, you know, spoken any Korean in the last two weeks. I need to find some speaking partners... maybe via Skype? Gotta look into this...

Hey, just a thought. Chicago has universities, yes? Why don't you call on of their English as A Second Language departments and see if their are Korean students studying English. Then you could do a language exchange. My university had a program with students from all over and they were always looking for English tutors.

That's a really good idea. I've actually looked into tutoring ESL around here before but most of the university programs require a full semester's commitment, but maybe I can find individual people on, like, Craig's List who are interested. The fact that I'm not here for very long might make a lot of people hesitant to work with me. Hmm. Thanks!
