THE 3 REASONS WHY I WANT TO BE FLUENT IN KOREAN LANGUAGE

People have different dreams and different aspirations. They also have different reasons and different goals for wanting to do something. Don't you agree? That's why I feel skeptical when some say the world is now saturated so not all of our dreams will come true. In fact, I believe there is enough resources and enough ways for us to achieve what we want.

Is there something you've been wanting to do but kept shoving to the side because you think it's difficult or nonviable? In my case, I have always wanted to be fluent in reading, speaking and understanding Korean Language. Now before you call me a Koreaboo, let me tell you the TOP 3 reasons why I want to speak it fluently.


Let me give you a flashback 5 years ago. In 2013, I was so motivated and determined to learn Korean Language. First, I self-studied how to read, how to write and how to pronounce basic expressions. After few months, when I felt I was ready to go to a proper Korean school, I went ahead and enrolled. Luckily, I got a slot! 


After just 3 months of persistently studying, I finished the class and ranked 3rd out of 30 students. That same time, I also took the TOPIK (Test Of Proficiency in Korean) and passed it!


Back then, I really had to enroll at a Korean school because I couldn't find enough websites, applications and tutorials that would help me improve. These days, however, there are hundreds of phone applications, helpful websites and easy tutorials that anyone could access through the internet on their mobile phones! What a relief!

I believe it is important that we have data connection on our mobile phones because it not only allows us to stay connected with our family and friends, but it also lets us use helpful applications and visit useful websites!


That's why I prefer to use my SUN CELLULAR to connect to the internet on my phone! (THIS IS NO JOKE, I REALLY USE IT since that day I found out how fast their data service is that one time I went to Tagaytay with my Family) And since we're having long-weekend next, why don't we try their newest (and limited offer) GIGASURF99?!

Sun Cellular's GIGASURF99 offers :
-2 GB of mobile data
-Unlimited texts to all networks
-FREE YOUTUBE for 1 hour daily
-Plus FREE 1 GB data

What's even more amazing is that it's only for Php 99 and is valid for 7 days! Hurry though, because it's only available from June 9 to Jue 17, 2018!

Anyway, here are the TOP 3 reasons why I want to be fluent in Korean :

1.) I WANT TO WATCH KOREAN DRAMAS WITHOUT READING SUBTITLES


If you are a fan of Korean dramas but can't speak their language, then you perfectly understand the struggle of having to have your eyes quickly read the text and then look at the actual screen to see the actor/actress so you would understand their emotion. You must be a quick reader to be able to do this. If not, you'd have to choose between being able to read the text properly OR seeing the pretty faces and beautiful scenery on the show.

2.) I WANT TO TRAVEL TO SOUTH KOREA AND NOT SPEAK ENGLISH AT ALL



The last time I was in Seoul, I was so impressed how nice and accommodating locals are! I mean, I love the Philippines BUT I was totally blown away how polite, considerate and friendly locals in Seoul are. Each time I'd get lost or would have to ask something, they'd be 100% willing to help. It could be because they are that nice OR because I can speak Korean. Though my pronunciation is bad, I'm sure they appreciate that someone from East Asia can speak and understand their language. Hence, the next time I go back, I want to be fluent so I could talk to locals even more. It's not that Koreans can't speak English, but because I want to be able to immerse myself in the environment.

3.) I WANT TO BE A TRANSLATOR AT A K-POP CONCERT IN THE PHILIPPINES


I understand it's NOT EASY to translate on the spot. I've heard from few who have tried translating that it's not easy and sometimes you could get mentally blocked and run out of words. But if I must spill my secret, this one is it. I want to be so fluent, I could be EXO or BTS' translator when they come here to have another concert. This one may be crazy but they say nothing is impossible if you just work hard, right? 

YOU CAN BE WHOEVER and WHATEVER YOU WANT TO BE! 
You just have to have a dream, get up then work hard for it and finally, BELIEVE that you will be IT.
