Like Jonathan, I found the recent announcement of an increase of half a million dollars to certain language course offerings at Berkeley to be heartening news. But I also find myself reacting with quite a bit of uncertainty to the announcement. Since my focus is in East Asian languages, my response to the […]

Thanks to Korean 한국어에 감사하며

한 2년 전에 이 블로그 FIT에서 UC버클리 일본어 선생님들께 감사의 말씀을 적은 적이 있다. 내가 학부생 일때 그 언어를 철저하게 공부할 수 있게 해주신 선생님들께 적어도 그렇게 써드려야겠다고 생각 했기 때문이다.

About 2 years ago here on FIT I wrote a post thanking my UC Berkeley Japanese teachers. This was the least […]

I got introduced to the music of the Nell more than a year ago by my good friend Minsook, on a road trip here in California. And you know how those songs that you hear on road trips have a way of staying with you in ways that others might not? That, added […]

Learning 2 languages at once: English in 한글!

여러분, 안녕하세요? (Hi, everyone!)

I’m writing this post for anyone on this blog, Found in Translation, but want to give a special shout-out to the summer language classes at Cal. And since I’m in Korea right now, and since I started studying Korean many years ago in a K1 summer language class at Berkeley (now I’m […]

노을, 마음에 드네

I was inspired by katie_k’s recent post about her favorite word in Russian, бессмысленный, and thought I’d add my own. For some reason I started hearing this word echo in my mind recently…I don’t know why it is that it resonates so much with me. It wasn’t written in a poem that I […]

역시나. 영어로. Of course. In English.

이렇게 될 줄 처음부터 알았다. I just knew it would happen.

어제 버클리 대학교에서 열린 FLANC (북가주 외국어 연합회) 학회에서 어느 발표자가 스케쥴에 써있던 대로 프랑스어로 발표를 시작했다. 그런데 그렇게 하고나서 곧, 청중 중 한명이 그 방 안 공용언어인 프랑스어를 못 알아들은 채, 그 분은 손들고 발표자한테 부탁했다. The presenter at yesterday’s more→

I wrote this a few years ago, and don’t think it would come out quite the same now, but thought it would be worth sharing here anyway…


94년 여름, 한국말로 인삿말 밖에 못하던 제가 처음으로 한국에 visit할 때 들었던 말입니다. 광화문 근처에 살던 제 친구 집에서 exploring the neighborhood하느라고 경복궁 광장에서 walking around 했었습니다.
