Ever wondered why Koreans speak "bad English"? Why it's so hard to learn Korean? Why it's so hard to have "normal" conversations with Koreans? Why it's so hard to fit in with Korean culture and society? We don't claim to have the perfect answer to these questions, just a few hints that we hope will clarify the situation. If you have questions, comments or suggestions, we'd be happy to hear from you. Email us at raphael.hadid [at] gmail [dot] com
I was born in New York City in lived in 6 different countries before ending up in Korea. I am 25 years old, my girlfriend is Korean and we have plans to get married. I attended graduate school in Korea before studying Korean part time, and worked for several Korean companies, universities and hagwons. Through this blog, I try to describe and analyze everything related to language and culture in Korea.
