MKR is a place for some of the nuggets I am encountering on my journey learning the Korean language. It began as a scrapbook for my Korean studies, which began in 2012 when I moved to Suwon, South Korea. Since then the blog has taken on a life of its own, and is as much a personal journal as a learning resource.
I don’t claim to be a Korean teacher – there are lots of other excellent websites that can help with that – but if you are learning Korean, I hope that my diaries, discoveries and occasional rants (!) are of use to you.
Korea has been a wonderful home to me, and in learning the language I have discovered an amazing culture, made some awesome friends and had a great time in the process.
To my fellow Korean students… 화이팅!
I’m a lost Welshman and unabashed music obsessive who has taken great pleasure in working in education since 2008. I moved to Korea to teach in 2012 and spent four remarkable years there. I got fit, I formed a few bands, I met my wife in a tiny town in the mountains. I even got on Korean television a few times.
When I’m not fiddling with this blog, you will find me either running, writing short stories or playing an instruments/records at high volume (much to the annoyance of my neighbours).
