i’m proud that i can now read hangul super-freakin-fast; faster than i can read japanese (both hiragana and katakana, and the limited kanji i know), which is really surprising because i thought i could read japanese super fast and hangul is a little more complicated than japanese?? ? idk, but i’ve learned to like put it together faster and not go by each individual alphabet character and block it together.
i’m really surprised, because i’ve been reading japanese for wAAAAYYYY longer than i’ve been learning korean… but i actually prefer korean now, because it’s actually a little more interesting. but Japanese is a little better to like understand, i guess… idk. maybe that’s just my years of anime/japanese dramas giving me that knowledge, because i watched anime before i watched the dramas, and then jdramas led to the korean dramas so i’ve been picking up korean for a shorter time hhhhhhh
Korean is much more fun to speak, though. Japanese is fairly, uh, predictable?? whereas reading korean half the time i’m like “idek how to pronounce that with that” but it’s so much fun. maybe even more fun than mandarin, actually
obviously, i can’t understand half the korean i’m reading/hearing, but i can at least read and speak-out the hangul now :3
