Know Your Symbols in Korean

Symbols in Korean

 

I’ve been teaching in Korea for awhile and these would always come up in the classroom. Most students didn’t know the English for many of the symbols (especially exclamation point) and I realized I didn’t know the Korean for them. Knowing these will be useful especially for those teaching in Korea.

Infographic: Seollal Facts and Vocab

I love this time of the year. It usually means about 3 days off from school for me (and Hyo’s rare time off as well). Hyo’s mom also cooks me lots of food to last me a couple of days and usually I go over and help as well for a few hours. Then we just relax the rest of the long holiday. My favorite dish would probably have to be jeon.

Unfortunately, a lot of Koreans (mainly women) don’t get to enjoy this time off because they are too busy cooking everything. I usually shout my excitement at work about how I am looking forward to the holidays while  many of my coteachers are dreading it because of all the family duties they will have to perform. It is changing a bit as more people are choosing to go on holidays to other countries or just relax, but for many it is more stressful than fun. Hyo always says how glad she is she won’t have to worry about it when we are married.

I guess it can be compared to Thanksgiving in the states (and Chuseok as well)

Many stores and restaurants are also closed, but there are still some places to check out around the country if you have nothing to do. Just search around on Google and some of the popular Korean activity sites.

Happy New Year!
