A painfully bad reading of The Giving Tree. Don’t listen, it will make your ears bleed. haha
I have progressed far enough with the story in LingQ to eliminate all the blue unknown words. Tutor helped by providing these words: 밑동: bottom part of the tree 찾아왔지요: came 최고야: it’s best 낮잠도: also napping 실버시타인: Silverstein (name of the author) 술래잡기: hide and seek
I would have thought looking up every word in the story would have led me to be able to understand the story, but I am far from that. I get the gist it is about a boy, a tree, and maybe that the boy grew into an old man and made a cane out of the tree.
For comparison, here is me reading the Glossika Mass Sentences in August and November. To my ears, I haven’t improved. Then again, I speak so little, what do I expect? The only speaking practice I have had is 1 hour a week in Korean Digital Academy class. I remain incredibly timid to open my mouth and speak Korean. With good reason, since I struggle even to say “아낌없이 주는 나무”.
