In the TED Talk 5 Techniques To Speak Any Language, Sid made these points:
- Make Mistakes (Beyond what you know)
- Use Hangul (Sounds)
- Find a stickler (Correction)
- Shower conversations (Practice)
- Find a buddy (Conversations)
It made me laugh that in my own bumbling way, I found these 5 things myself. I got myself new Korean friends at Interpals, made mistakes writing to them, decided I had to use Hangul, got a teacher in the KDA class to correct my pronunciation, realized I should have practice conversations, and got myself a language exchange buddy to speak Korean with.
