7 Random Korean Expressions – Ep. 15

    Good idea. I still haven’t been in Korea long or often enough these days to adjust to 초등학교, which I guess means starting level school, instead of, ummm, public or citizens’ school, 국민 학교. 초 is handy to know, though, because it pops up a lot of places…first degree black belt is 초단, a college assistant professor is 초교수. A lot of mileage out of one Chinese character.

    • Yes, the word 초 is used a lot like 초급, 초혼, 초석 and so on. However the assistant professor is 조교수. 🙂

    • Dan

      Dang! it’s not 초교수? But that makes so much sense, especially when I was at that stage. I sure felt like a beginner. But if languages made sense, we’d have 초등학교, 줌등학교, and then 고등학교…:P

    Can you make a video about the person who really motivated you to study your 2nd language, and what makes you confident using it. The same as Hyunwoo 30 mins talk in youtube i just kept listening to him and it encourage me to study more. I even want to meet the teacher that smiled so fresh to him while he is feeling sicked and want to go home.
