Episode 38: (으)려고 and 노력하다 "in order to try"
안녕하세용~! AH the last year of university proves to be harder than I thought ㅠ__ㅠ I have to do so many pages of reading I forget what it's like to not be in a constant state of reading. Nowadays I read EVERYWHERE and I still don't end up covering all the material I need to cover. Oh well, depressing things aside, these ~Weekly Korean~ episodes really help me get my mind off of university work and other stressful things so I'm very grateful to all of you who watch them and read m
Episode 36: ~지 말다 Negative Commands!
안녕ㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇ 친구들~! I still feel bad about posting last week's blog super late so I'm going to post this one super early :D Hope you guys don't mind ㅋㅋㅋ Last week we went over how to make commands in Korean but we never discussed how to tell people NOT to do something, which is also a command, however, in Korean it is constructed a little differently. ~지 말다: In order to construct a negative command in Korean we need to add ~지 말다 to the stem of a verb like this: 운동하지 말다 자지 말다 먹지
Episode 35: I Command Thee!! :)
안녕 사랑하는 친구들~!!!!!!! I'm sorry for writing this blog post almost a week after I published the video for it. The day I shot and published the video I fell ill with a stomach flu and have been too weak to get out of bed until today ㅠ___ㅠ. I'm feel a lot better so I'm finally going back to the pile of responsibilities I've abandoned while I was sick and this blog post was on the top of my priorities list! Did you know that Korean has more than one way of commanding others to do s
Episode 33: Original meaning of ~줄 알다!
안녕하세용~~~~~~ I’m pretty sure I’ve vaguely mentioned that I will be going back home for two weeks to finally have a bit of summer vacation. So I am writing this blog post from the balcony of my mom’s apartment right outside of the beach with a bowl of refreshing watermelon and the sound of the sea accompanying me :3 it’s OK guys, don’t be jealous. I haven’t left London the entire summer! Last week we learnt a new and interesting concept of ~줄 아랐다 where it indicates that what yo
Episode 32: 생각하다 vs 줄 알았다
안녕ㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇㅇ~!!! I'm pretty sure I've mentioned in the previous blog post that I will be going back home to Israel for two weeks in mid-August. I feel like recently I've been glued to my laptop 24/7 and I don't think that's right, so I want to do a cleanse while I'm at home and not take my laptop with me! :O I know I know, unbelievable right? Therefore, I need to make 6 videos in the next 7 days so that I can schedule them to release on their own while I'm away. Boy this shall b
Episode 31: Everything You Need to Know About ~것 같다!
안녕하세용~!!! I am finally moving guys! No more student accommodations! Hello real world of taxes, bills and rent! ㅠ___ㅠ Please forgive me for taking a while to release blog posts! Moving is so time consuming and I have so much to learn in terms of contracts and rent payments and bills and all that grown-up adult stuff. I am trying my best to keep up with our Korean studies!

Episode 25: Direct Modifying with Verbs and Adjectives!
안녕하세용 여러분~!! Please excuse my raspy voice and blocked nose; I've been ill with a cold and fever since Monday. I'm pretty sure I've mentioned feeling ill in my Website Launch video and everything went pretty much downhill from there. I've been bedridden the whole week :/ But I'm not going to be a Debbie-downer and think negatively about it because I got to rest and have my boyfriend take care of me, which was kinda nice :3 Also I'm not going to let this stupid cold stop me fro
Episode 24: ~는데 Explained!
안녕하세용~! Last week I was asked what are the uses of ~는데 and I was terrified of the thought of trying to explain it because it's just such a brain killer. It's honestly not that difficult, however it does require a certain knowledge and familiarity of Korean language and is mostly based on context. As much as I was afraid of this topic, I decided to be brave and tackle it head on with you guys, so here's what I came up with: ~는데 and ~는 데 are VERY different and mean TOTALLY diff
