I guess part 2 of my learning Korean....

Okay, yeah I suck at making titles but aww well... I told you guys that I would show you a bit of pages from the book "Korean from zero!" that I own heh Its not much because I want you lovely people to see for yourselves the inside of it!! But I could give you a preview of it!! That is my personal copy of the book (pictured above) it has a lot of post its. They help me find some rules or grammar that I peruse throughout the lessons that I have done (and will do)
I will apologize right now for the extremely horrible quality of these images (my phone's camera kills me) The first image is pretty much what you first learn which is the Hangul that will be used a lot (a lot!!) all over the book! : sucked at writing in the beginning (hmm still kind of do) The second are some examples of what you are going to see the first couple of pages. This particular page is about double batchim and vowels (don't worry if you don't understand it) as you could see I added the romanization of the words it helped me say the words at this beginning level! The third one are examples of some of the conversations that are all throughout the book, they will be translated like this! The fourth one is an example of exercises that you will do at the end of each lesson (at this point I was not really understanding how to translate or write well... still have trouble)
Another example of some exercises of translating.... I tried to find one where I had most answers right. The next one you could see by this point I didn't need to write the romanization because I now know his to read hangul (although pretty slowly at times) The next one is just to show you how much I improved (and I truly have it is getting easier to write in Korean) This last page is where I currently am in the book (which is already well through the book) more complex grammar! I looked a little forward into the book and it doesn't have much English!! something to look forward to!
Well I hope this helped you a bit and showed you what is waiting for you (if you decide to purchase the book) If you need any questions answered I will try my best to help you!!!
Warning though... They stop romanization by the 5th chapter. Once they have taught you all the Hangul it's all Hangul after. So if you don't study up hard on Hangul you will get lost in the workbook or be flipping through back and forth constantly. So, post it page markers are a great idea for true beginners. :)
I really really need help with learning korean.....

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
