Cara Terbaik Belajar Bahasa Asing (?)

Speak Your Mind (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/413838653229170563/)

Saya teringat ketika ada waktu berbicara dengan teman – teman, kita sering membicarakan tentang masa depan; apakah ingin lanjut kuliah S2, ataukah ingin kerja, atau jangan – jangan ingin langsung menghalalkan pacar yang sudah lama di cinta(?).

Intinya dari setiap percakapan – percakapan tersebut, ada satu topik yang sering sekali muncul dan pada akhirnya menjadi bahan diskusi pengganti topik nikah masa depan yang sedang asik – asiknya digoreng tadi. Topik tersebut adalah tentang bahasa Inggris.

The Need of a Log on One’s Life Journey

Keep a log will ya? (http://wallpaperswide.com)

“It is impossible to improve something that you don’t track.” This is so true! I think the reason why most people, including me, failing in making a good habit is due to the problem of tracking things that have been done every day. Like right now, I’ve been studying Korean, Electromagnetism, and also other thing but I feel like I’m still lacking in everything and I never really know what is it that I’m lacking because I never really keep a track of my progress when learning or doing something.

Girls of the Wild’s | 소녀 더 와일즈

Girls of the Wild’s

One of the dopest manga I’ve ever read is the Girls of the Wild’s (GOTW) or 소녀 더 와일즈 as it is written in the original Korean title. It’s a really outdated manhwa and I’ve finished it twice about a year ago I think.  But damned, even after reading it several times I still get psyched when I read it again now. Its addicting effect is as close as One Piece’s and Kingdom, which, in my opinion, is the best manga man ever created. Hail Eiichiro Oda-sensei and Yasuhisa Hara (原泰久) sensei! Hahaha.

Cara Mudah Menghafal Kosa – Kata (?)

Words (Source: google.com)

Akhir – akhir ini, setelah sekitar Sembilan bulanan belajar bahasa Korea, saya rasa saya mulai bisa mengerti secara intuisi untuk kalimat – kalimat bahasa Korea yang kompleksitasnya sedang. Kaidah – kaidah tata bahasa (grammar) dari HTSK yang dulu saya mati – matian jejalkan di otak, kini semuanya mulai terasa natural untuk digunakan. Asik nya 😀 .

Sayangnya meskipun sudah banyak belajar tentang kaidah tata bahasa, penguasaan kosa – kata (vocabulary) saya masih terbatas banget. 왜냐하면/kalau kalian tanya kenapa; karena saya terlalu malas untuk menghafalkan kosa – kata dan meskipun jika saya sudah coba menghafal, entah kenapa tetap gak hafal – hafal. Wkwkwk.

Tamparan Dosen Untukku dan Teman – Teman Mahasiswa

Tabok! (https://goo.gl/gqarzN)

Semester ini, semester 5 di teknik fisika UGM, ada dua mata kuliah yang sangat – sangat menarik menurut saya. Pertama adalah mata kuliah teknik aktuator, yang kedua adalah mata kuliah komputasi fluida dinamik atau lebih dikenal sebagai Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD).

Apa itu teknik aktuator dan apa itu CFD tidak akan saya ceritakan disini. Yang ingin saya ceritakan adalah, hal menarik  apa yang terjadi di kelas sehingga membuat saya merasa “tertampar” dan membuat saya berusaha merubah pola pikir dan kebiasaan saya.

Seperti kata pepatah, semakin tinggi pohon semakin tinggi angin menerpa, seperti itulah kehidupan yang saya rasakan di semester 5 ini. Pelajaran – pelajaran yang dijelaskan dikelas sudah mulai pelajaran – pelajaran lanjutan, sehingga untuk memahaminya, adalah sebuah tantangan yang pasti.

The Thing About Korean Drama

DOTS. I don’t really know whether this drama is a drama about love or about a special soldier.

Okay, honestly, this is going to be a short post I think. You guys know right that I’ve been learning Korean maybe for more than 7 months now. I’ve tried every resource that I can find, every free online lesson, and everything that has a “Korean” label on it. It was great you know, everything was worked out really well. Oh okay, maybe except for one thing.

If you read my previous post, I don’t know, I don’t think to say a “previous post” is the right thing to do, but anyway let’s move on. So the point is, I told you guys before, in several of my previous posts, the fact that I learned how to speak English purely by relying on New Girl drama.

I remember me, watching it for probably around 5 – 6 months, and then doing all the shadowing thing until all the sudden I can understand and maybe speak English quite good I think, even though it wasn’t that good like native English does.

So I tried to do the same thing with Korean, but I think it didn’t work out really well. Here’s why. If you are Korean drama fans, then you will definitely agree with me that, 85% – 95% of Korean drama is all nothing but the story about love.

I mean, American dramas are also full of a story about love and romantics thing, but they are not as cheesy as Korean drama I think. I mean, the genre is about medics or sci-fi, but in the end, everything turns out to be a cheap – cheesy romantic drama which I hate so much. WT*?

This kind of drama would be awesome too 🙂 (https://scriptpipeline.com)

 

What’s wrong with Koreans? Please make a good story that not so focus on the cheesy love slow – mo drama kind of things. You know, maybe try to make the things like “Friends,” “New Girl,” “Lucifer,” “Sleepy Hollow,” etc. Stop with the repeatedly done slow – mo and the mixing up the genre things.

If the drama is about love, then do it consistently from the start to the end. If it is about supernatural, then be it from to the start till the end. Of course, there should be a little spice about love to complete the story, but it is not the main point!

Anyway, for K-drama lovers, if I offend you, I am truly sorry, I don’t mean it to become like that. You know, I too like K – drama, to begin with. But I am too disgusted now by the way the story always turns from the initial genre to the “romantic” kind of thing.

That’s all. Good night.

P.S: But please don’t do a remake of Game of Throne. It’s really an awful idea. Hahaha
