  1. Definitely! I always feel like I shouldn't join in their conversations because if they're talking in a different language they probably don't want others in their conversation. It's a shame because it's such a good way to practice a language..but I'm always too shy to try to engage with strangers...especially in a language I'm still shaky in!
  2. Welcome! I speak a tiny bit of French because I live in New Orleans and we're forced to take three years of French in high school because of the native Creole population here. I am proud to say that I was able to read most of your message in French, although I am nowhere near fluent.
  3. Down here in the Southern States there is a lot of stigma around learning ANY foreign language, but when I told my parents that I wanted to learn Korean they just kinda started at me in disbelief.

But, as other people have said, music is a universal language. You can feel emotion in a voice even if you can't understand what is being said. I have listened to music in many different languages and you can always tell when a song is sad, happy, heartbreaking, or romantic even if you don't speak the language.
  7. Hi! My name is Aamori and I'm new here I've been trying to learn Korean for a while now because I have become increasingly interested in Korean culture and entertainment...especially their television dramas! They really know how to tug on heart strings. Living in the southern United States, there aren't many Korean courses available nearby for me. I've tried learning through both Pimsleur and Rosetta Stone. I finished the first two units of Rosetta Stone but I didn't feel like I had learned very much...Pimsleur was helpful but I felt that it was teaching the most formal way to speak and
