About me


Hi, my name is Steven. I’ve studied Korean for two and half years. Six months casually and two years fairly seriously, or as seriously as can be for someone not living in Korea with a full time job.

I created this blog for two main reasons. As I learnt Korean I primarily self studied and relied a lot on materials available on the internet. Now in 2018 there is a wealth of information available, but in my opinion a lot of the information overlaps and is very ‘textbooky’. For example, grammar related guides provided fairly generic explanations and generic examples (perhaps to be safe and not to be wrong), and as a result it misses the core of what the grammar is about. I created this blog to provide an explanation of Korean grammar from a different perspective, in a way that would have helped me when I was learning them.

The second reason is to really help me understand the grammar myself. I am a stickler for understanding things properly and in writing a blog I force myself to do the research and ask the questions of myself to ensure that I really understand the content.

I hope some of this content may help you. Please feel to leave a message if anything here has helped you in your learning, it would make my day!
