I came across a wonderful new blog looking at TTMIK links today — Korean Word a Day. Not only does are interesting words posted daily but the blogger also includes news articles with word lists. Incredibly usefl — I think I’ll be using it to bone up my Korean newspaper reading.
Right now I can usually make up the gist of a news article (especially if its an article about something I’m interested in). There are still bunches of words I don’t know though, so reading the small articles at Korean Word a Day should help me getting my feet wet so that I can read longer articles more often on my own.
