    Areum Leah

    1. My full name is Areum Leah + Family name. Although Areum is my first name (my parents named me so because I was born in Korea) everyone calls me Leah. Areum is too difficult for the people here and only my closest friends call me like that.

    2. I made living in Germany, my whole family is German, but I was born in Korea

    3. I just finished school with the highest level one can get here in Germany. No I am waiting for university to begin, I will study physics

    4. Oh that is such a hard question. I don’t have a favorite song. I like so many songs from so many artists and so many genres. But since this about learning korean I can name 주소서, also known as pray by bap

    5. Definitely pacific rim, don’t ask me why. Normally I am more into girly love stories

    6. I can speak German and English but I always have big trouble learning a language :((

    7. I am learning for 3 months now so I am at the very beginning. I am searching for different ways to learn because even if I can write a sentence if a Korean would say it, I wouldn’t understand

    8. Oh. I didn’t had alot of trouble with Korean until now. I am still reading like a child in elementary school and sometimes I forgot not to say the consonants at the end of a word too loud. Like 밥 먹었어 I always say like bab meogeosseo although it sounds more like bameogeosseo

    9. It definitely is 몰라 (I have no idea) because it saves me in almost every situation haha

    10. I did 태권도 (Taekwondo?) for a few years but every time something suddenly moves (not only when fighting but in general, playing with a ball or even someone waving) I immediately close my eyes, which is not that good or I quit
