  • Ah...You don't want to be around a lot of Koreans

    啊......你不會想和很多韓國人在一起吧?

    因為你會說韓語比你說英語多。

  • Ok, so it's very important to get away from the people who speak the same language as you.

    好吧,所以遠離和你說同一種語言的人是非常重要的。

  • Ok. It's very tempting. After a long day, you're tired and you're sick of English

  • Ok, another problem...the language schools.

    好吧,又是一個問題......語言學校。

  • Now when you're in Korea, you probably go to the 어학원 [language school helpers] first.

    現在到了韓國,可能會先去找어학원[語言學校的幫助者]。

    他們有很多的學生。他們有很多的......啊......錢,試圖讓更多的學生。

  • So don't trust the [language school helpers] too much, ok?

    所以不要太相信【語言學校幫辦】,好嗎?

  • And the language schools in Vancouver, Toronto

    還有溫哥華、多倫多的語言學校

  • very big very professional. And they are a problem because...I put three reasons here.
