I always read aloud to myself when studying Korean. It really helps and makes learning fun. ###
When I was in middle school, you would never recognize me without a book. I didn’t have any friends to hang out with, and if you were unoccupied you were fair game for the bullies. So having a book was my way of escaping and avoiding, I guess. I could pretend I was someplace else, and could totally become oblivious to the world and noise around me.
When I was 13, my mom and dad chose to homeschool me (and contrary to a common myth out there that homeschoolers lack social skills, I came out of my shell, learned to socialize, and made friends… but that’s a different story for a different time). Homeschooling means a lot of required reading. A lot! So I could take my book history book on the Vikings to my bedroom and it was there that I learned to read out loud to myself.
