So this week instead of giving a weekly update as usual, I’m going to talk about my new textbook that arrived. Mostly because I hardly studied at all this week… ㅠ.ㅠ
On Tuesday my new copy of News in Korean arrived on my doorstep. I’m super excited!! It’s published by the ever-lovely folks at Talk to Me in Korean. I haven’t actually looked at the book much since my life has been crazy, but I did glance through it when it arrived. I absolutely adore the graphic design of this book. TTMIK, whoever your graphic designer was for this book, keep them!! The font and layout are so simple and cute, and I like the color scheme as well. Two thumbs up.
About a year ago (or maybe a little less… I don’t remember), I was considering subscribing to TTMIK’s old version of News in Korean, which I believe gave you 6 news articles per week via email. I ended up deciding not to spend the money on it, since I wasn’t sure I had the time to study that much on a weekly basis. A few months later I decided to go ahead and subscribe, but when I went to TTMIK’s website, it had been discontinued. I definitely regretting not subscribing earlier when I had the chance.
Then, lo and behold, they published it in book form! I actually prefer physical books to the ebook format anyways, so maybe this is the best of both worlds.
Anyways, I have one more week of craziness before my life calms down, so I’ll probably wait until then to official start studying my new textbook. Once I do start, I’m planning/hoping to study one news article per day.
One more fun fact: when you Google Image search “news in korean ttmik”, a picture of Sofie from Sofie to Korea comes up in the 8th row. Sofie, you’re famous! 😀
