Webtoons

Leave a comment

I found a neat way to study Webtoons. Webtoons is a bunch of Naver comic strips that come out online every day . . . and they archive all the old episodes as well so you can start at the beginning of a series that looks interesting, read to the present time, and then keep reading every week when a new episode comes out.

I’ve been looking at it off and on since living in Korea — it has bunches of fun dialogue and expressions, but I always had a hard time knowing how to study with it. It didn’t download to nicely, and when I tried to download it with my ipod webtoons app, it would only let me keep it saved for a bit.

But I found a solution — Firefox’s scrapbook extension. I usually use Chrome but I’ve found the scrapbook Firefox extension one of the niftiest tools for language study. With scrapbook you can save the pages to study later, as well as annotate your pages.

This grammatical dictionaryseems rather useful. . . I want to start reading the different articles right now for grammatical constructions I haven’t heard or or am not clear about. I’m not sure how accurate it is. . . but it seems very promising.

Korean. . . slowly piece by piece

The night before yesterday I had a dream one of my sisters was speaking Korean. . . and using a grammatical construction I had heard lots of times but wasn’t sure how to use myself. . .but upon waking up I knew finally knew how to use it! Then later in the day another Korean grammatical construction that I had also heard loads but never known how to use suddenly became clear to me. . . . this is fun! slowly but surely. . . the little bits and pieces are becoming more clear.
