Sooo, the fact that I'm crazy busy isn't really encouraging me to spend more time studying Korean. The Survival Korean book is a little frustrating in that there's no transliteration at all. I can understand separating the romanization from the hangul but not offering it at all is quite a strain for an absolute beginner!

Even so, I've taken a liking to Arirang's Let's Speak Korean series from '07. Each segment is 10 minutes long and admittedly, 5 minutes of each is pretty much foolishness. Still, I suppose the relational elements help keep the learning lighthearted.

Hopefully I'll settle on a method soon enough. Until then, no worries. I have my SMOE interview on Sunday. If that goes well, I should be all set! *fingers crossed*
