語学を身につける為には・・・Putting language to the test!

語学堂で、お料理をしました。事前に教科書で習ったチャプチェ(春雨料理)を作りました。ペロリ外国語で料理をすると頭を使いますね!

包丁、鍋、皿、玉ねぎ、麺、人参などの名詞、焼く、湯がく、炒めるなどの動詞、それと美味しく出来るために必要な形容詞は大活躍する内容の濃い面白い授業となりました。

語学はやはり教科書から学ぶだけで身に付かない。

今日午後が語学交流をする友達を紹介してく貰いました。賢そうな優しい延世大学院生です。

来週からは彼女と英語・韓国語を教え合いします。

Today at the KLI (Korean Language Institute) we had a cooking lesson. ペロリIn our textbooks we have been studying how to make Chapchae( potato noodles) so we got to put it to practice today. Wow! Cooking in Korean really puts the old brain to work.

Nouns like knife, saucepan, onion, noodle, carrot, verbs like cook, boil, fry, and all the wonderful adjectives we need to direct how we cook were all put to the test!

The whole experience once again accentuated the importance of putting language to use and not only swatting over your books! This afternoon I was introduced to a language exchange buddy, a very charming and intelligent young graduate student from Yonsei. We both have similar needs and hopefully will be able to help each other.

That all starts next week. Something else to look forward to….
