New Year lunch with the Ateneo Korean Studies Program people

January 13, 2019

One of the sad things about being on a part-time teaching status (a.k.a. adjunct) is that you usually work alone. You rarely see other faculty members, and your interaction is quite limited to students, your department chair, and academic friends (whom you usually talk to via email, social media, or through conferences). So when opportunities […]

The second phase of my Indonesian language learning began last 6 November 2018.

I’ve liked Pablo […]

And as a native Filipino speaker, I have also helped Koreans who wish to learn the Filipino language. In particular: How to say things naturally.  Although Koreans can understand what I mean, my sentences and […]

I don’t know what’s happening with Memrise, but I am unable to use it because the app prompts me to pay for subscription whenever I open it. This has been happening for days. Although I review the Korean stuff I learned in Korea through my books and notes, I like learning more vocabulary with Memrise. […]
