Ok, I've finally done it. I ordered Rosetta Stone and as of today I am officially learning to speak Korean.
Ever since I became so interested in Korean music and movies, it's driven me crazy that I can't understand it. I LOVE Korean culture and I think the language is beautiful. S0 this morning I decided to take the plunge and attempt to learn to speak at least basic Korean. I figure if we do end up going to Korea to pick up Clarissa, I'm guessing that it will be in 6-8 months from now. If I practiced a lot for the next 6-8 months, maybe I'd be able to carry on a very basic conversation with Clarissa's foster mother and at least ask strangers how to get to the bus stop, right?!
I'm going to give it a try. I love to learn new things and I think this will be a fun adventure. I'll keep you posted on my progress! Wish me luck!
