|Spiderman Movie Night|
On Monday, we beginners made the much anticipated language pledge, agreeing not to speak English on campus, at group activities, or at home. Even though this has led to many awkward moments such as telling the music teacher that the meaning of life is to rave or realizing that we left someone at the Seoul bus station, my Korean skills have been increasing exponentially. Last night, I actually held a conversation with my host family in Korean - albeit broken Korean - for nearly three hours. With help from plenty of pictures and hand motions, we were able to have a normal conversation which was really cool! Apparently Aunt Kim has been worrying that I don't eat enough and that my host brother eats too much bread instead of rice.

Crazy Korean Discoveries:
1. Stairs are not a standard height, even within one flight. Don't be fooled - the top stair may be 50% taller than the rest just to trip you up.
2. Taxi drivers are their own kind of crazy. They will throw their automatic cars into neutral while driving. This is not limited to stop lights or stop signs, either. If they are going down a hill and are just feelin' it, that car is going into neutral.
