How many years needed to master Korean?
글쎄요. I give myself 5 years because I think it’s somewhat a realistic number for me. I use TOPIK as standard for basic, intermediate, and advanced level.
3 months to finish basic level. (Done.)
2 years to finish intermediate level. (Done.)
3 years to finish advanced level. (I’m doing this now, year 1.)
So the plan is I’m going to take -and pass!- TOPIK Advanced in 2016. So far away but I don’t want to overburden myself because my Korean is still “아직 멀었어요”. In the real meaning. Not being humble or anything.
My plan is I will just study every day, experiment with methods and learning tools, review grammars and words, and have fun with the language all the way, like I’ve been doing these last 2 years.
How about you? ###
