[VIDEO] How I Study Korean - Notebook, Practice, Vocabulary

Back in June I decided that I wanted to start learning Korean. I know 3(ish) languages and I decided it was time to challenge myself with something totally different.

Since my school (or most schools) don’t offer Korean classes, I knew I would have to self-study it. Even though this would require more work on my part, it would also allow me to develop my own routine that was flexible and effective.

So in this video I’ll be telling you first, about what online tools I study from: There are so many apps and websites out there for studying Korean (and, of course, textbooks, but I’m a Gen Zer ¯\_(ツ)_/¯). There’s no “best” option, it all depends on what you’re looking for. I tested a couple of different apps and websites and finally settled on just ONE that I’m focusing on because it has pretty much everything I want to know about Korean vocab and grammar. You’ll have to watch the video to find out what it is!

Then, I’ll give you a tour of my Korean notebook (which I am very proud of). It holds all of my notes, a list of all of the vocabulary I’ve learned so far, and helpful phrases. I’ll also tell you about my highlighting system, and how I organize my notes!

I’ll show you my flashcards, which I use to drill vocab.

And then finally I’ll tell you about my daily study routine! How long I study, what I focus on during each session, etc.

I hope these tips help you whether you’re learning Korean, another language, or are looking to start another language! Don’t forget to share the video with a friend if they do :) I wanted to create this video because I really believe that knowing multiple languages opens so many doors and improves our cultural understanding.

Let me know! What language(s) are you currently learning or would you like to learn?

Happy Friday,

[VIDEO] How I'm Organizing My Schoolwork in 2018 // Senior Year

It’s not quite back-to-school season anymore, but I, for one, am still trying to iron out my weekly routine and figure out how I'm going to balance school with everything else. Planning and organization help A TON, so today I wanted to share with you exactly how I’m going to organize my homework and schoolwork to stay on top of everything and make senior year my best yet 👌

I’m not a super artsy person when it comes to school. Don’t get me wrong, I love stationery and making things pretty, but I just don’t like to spend money unnecessarily on school supplies and I find that simple note-taking systems work best for me. Hopefully you’ll find my organization systems and tips practical and useful!

Keep in mind that what works for me may not work for you, this is just meant to serve as inspiration!

Oh, and make sure to share this video with a friend who could use some help with organization 😉

What’s your best organization tip for school? (or just life, if you are done with school!)

Happy Fri-yay,
