What is Hardest for You:
I am currently studying for the TOPIK exam, and there are listening, reading, and writing sections of the test.

It got me thinking about what part of the language is hardest for me, and I wanted to know your opinions too:

Listening

Speaking

Writing

Reading

Mine would range (from easiest to hardest)

1. Reading
2. Listening
3. Writing
4. Speaking
Having other people come up with the words for me is easier. For example, if someone says "강아지" I immediately know its "puppy" but if you asked me to quickly answer what "puppy" is in Korean, I'd have to think longer to remember it myself. Does that make sense? That's why Writing and Speaking are the hardest for me!

What do you find the hardest about learning a new language?

I would have to say speaking and listening are the hardest for me. Reading is easier for me. Good Luck on your exam!! You can do it! You got this! I actually took something similar to that like a year ago but for Spanish/English Certified Health care Interpreters. All this will pay off at the end! Fighting! :)

I suck at all of it especially since I'm trying to teach myself with youtube videos and other helpful things on the Internet but I'm not learning it that well at all ...I actually need someone to teach me one on one in person that way I'll know if I'm actually doing a decent job I'm more of a hands on person when it comes to learning things

I think our lists are the same lol. It's hard for me to speak because I get nervous that I'll say something the wrong way. Reading is pretty easy listening is too, but if someone were to ask me to write something myself, I have to think on it longer cause my brain practically scrambles trying to sift through the words I know and how they're spelled. I'm also painfully shy... so that doesn't help matters when speaking. So yeah, lol writing and speaking are hardest for me, as well. You made perfect sense btw haha xD Good luck with the exam! 화이팅!
