Today was the first day of Level 3, aka Intermediate 1. The textbook is 7,000 won, just like before – but structured quite differently. The class is quite different too. Previously, my class was small enough that everyone could do dialogue practice, and speak their own attempts at making sentences. This class, not so much. The occasional volunteer (forced or not).
Getting to class was much easier. Previously, I had to take a hourlong bus ride to the middle of nowhere. Now, I take the subway from the station next to my apartment, switch over at the big station to Seoul Line 1, and get out a few stations later.
I really, really prefer the subway. Also, some expats apparently nicknamed the Seoul Line 1 as ‘Slumpiercer’? I’m not sure if I should laugh or cry.
