A little video
If you’ve been wondering what my Korean sounds like, I just made this video. Of course, it is always interesting to hear your own voice….especially in another language. And it is a good learning tool.
At any rate, I hope it says something like:
Hello everyone! My name is Austin, I’m 26 years old. I came to Korea from America to teach English. I teach at an elementary school. The students there are very smart and cute.
I have lived in Seoul for 1 year. During that time I’ve been studying Korean very hard, but it is difficult. In my opinion, speaking seems to be the most difficult. So I made this video. Actually I’ve never listened to my self speak Korean before. I really want to practice pronunciation.
You may not be able to tell, but I can see now that I really need to work on my accent! The pronunciation is OK, but there’s plenty of room for growth. The good news: one of my students just told me that I only made one mistake (the equivalent of saying “Me” instead of “My”)! That’s encouraging!
