My teacher from Korean Digital Academy has been helping lay out steps for me. I have fallen behind already 😦 However, I have completed seeing all the videos in class 14 and taken notes plus asked questions. So today, I can finally get to the rest of mission.
For those of you who like it spelled out exactly, see the conversation I had with Rob below.
Conjugate a verb on paper
So what I want you to do now is:
IF you need to watch the videos on conjugation of 오-verbs first, then do that. But if you don’t…
If you feel comfortable enough with your understanding, then I want you to practice.
You can use the worksheets if you want, or just a pencil and piece of paper.
Take all the target 오-verbs.
Conjugate each one.
As you fill in each spot of the chart, say it.
Yeah, printing the worksheets will help, but for now you don’t need them.
An empty sheet of paper with a list of 오-verbs on it.
Take each one, and then conjugate it.
I guess you’ll want to follow the worksheets though so you can see the answer.
But you can still just do it on a blank piece of paper.
6 Steps to Mastering “ㅗ” verbs
First UNDERSTAND it.
Second memorize HOW to do it.
Third, practice it.
Fourth: Once you’ve got it down while writing them, just make a sidelist of JUST the words
Fifth: Once you have your sidelist of words you’ve made (verbs), continue to practice it – verbal ONLY – for another 5-10 minutes. Until you feel decently comfortable with it.
Sixth: (to be done later):
Go back to it and refresh it. Practice SAYING the conjugations of each verb for another 5-10 minutes and build it up to a point you’re comfortable again.
If you want to expand this step, you can now bring in ONE other word to make a sentence.
Doesn’t all have to be one in one day.
But those steps are all kind of sub-steps of this one part of the week – learning how to conjugate 오-verbs.
1. Watch the videos once, straight thru, the first day. Take notes.
2. Don’t study other materials. There is enough material simply with the KDA class.
3. Focus on producing language. SPEAK.
4. Streamline the process. Otherwise it is hard to get through it all.
5. We need to leave time – and a good amount of it – to learn and practice the structure of it all.
6. Don’t confuse “activity” with “progress”
