Korean Pimsleur Is Very Hard
I am not progressing as fast as I'd like.
I am not doing so well with Pimsleur. In order to finish all 60 Pimsleur lessons for Korean, I need to be doing a lesson a day. I am only on lesson 14, and each one is taking me a long time, definitely more than a day.
Still, I am learning things. Such as “Give me two beers, please.” “Do you have any Korean money?” Also: “The price is 4,000 won.”
None of these three sentences is likely to be very helpful to me any time soon. I don’t drink, and I have no Korean money.
In the afternoon I needed a nap, so I got into bed with Pimsleur. As usual, this worked right away.
When I woke up, I walked through Central Park to the New York Road Runners Club to pick up my number for the Haiti fundraising run on Saturday. I did Pimsleur all the way. Then I did Pimsleur on the 6 train to Brandt’s show, which was great, again.
I was in bed at 11:59. I never go to bed before midnight.
