Korean Culture and Language - Q&A

Why you shouldn’t compare your Korean to others

When you're learning Korean at any level, you sometimes can't help but see other learners and compare yourself with their progress.

After all, if someone else is doing the same journey you are, you might feel curious to know how they're doing things, where they're at, and how fast they got there.

However, while it may be unavoidable to do this, it's not a good idea for several reasons. I also have a lot of experience learning Korean, and also comparing myself to others, and I've learned along the way that it's not a productive thing to spend my time doing.

So let me share two of my methods for tracking my progress, and also how I can continue to improve my speaking abilities.
