    That is quite a mix….hum….I think I will need some practical sentences for each one to remember them. Also, some seem pretty useless in any conversation I would have.

    Squirrel monkey? I can’t imagine, ever using that word….unless it would be to describe on of my 대학생s.

    So how do you say, “There’s this 대학생 in my class who reminds me of a 다람쥐원숭.” Now that would be a useful sentence!

    Come on guys….good try, but no cigar! T T

    Can 뒷담화 be used as a verb by adding 하다?

    EGY, I know what you mean, but I’ve found that some obscure words I think I wouldn’t ever use turn out to be more useful than I thought they would be. So you never know.^^

    TTMIK, 다시 감사합니다!

    Is it possible that this is a Korean idiom and not a racial slur: “Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest.”
