Learning Log

My relatives spent a night at my house. I’m exhausted.

Anyways…

I was in the mood for TOPIK the last couple of days, so that’s what I did: studying TOPIK questions.

Advanced Grammar

From TOPIK 32 Advanced, Vocabulary & Grammar

다음 밑줄 친 부분과 바꾸었을 때 의미가 가장 비슷한 것을 고르십시오.
13. 책으로 쌓은 지식이 많다 해도 오랜 기간 현장에서 축적된 경험을 따를 수는 없다.

1. 많은들
2. 많건만
3. 많을수록
4. 많을지니

So I studied:
-은들 > Korean Grammar in Use page 105
-건만 > Korean Grammar in Use page 158, Korean Grammar Practice for Foreigners page 11
-을지니 > Korean Grammar Practice for Foreigners page 167

I couldn’t find the intended definition of 따르다 in the question in Naver English Dictionary or Naver Japanese Dictionary (이상하네. 왜 없는가?), only in the monolingual dictionary (국어사전). I guess, if you continue studying, you will experience this…

따르다
앞선 것을 좇아 같은 수준에 이르다.
아무도 어머니의 음식 솜씨를 따를 수 없다. >> あ、そうか!So 따를 수 없다 means「追いつけない」in Japanese. In English, “can not catch up with”? よくわからないけど^^;

And I studied the listening section until no. 7.
To my surprise, the narrators’ speaking speed in TOPIK Advanced is actually SLOWER than the so-called normal speed.

OK, then.
Enjoy the rest of 2013! 행복한 연말 보내세요! ###
