I went to the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines today to register for the 34th TOPIK and borrow books from their library. It’s my first time going there so I was really excited. I expected it to be big. Big enough for me to get lost in it. But it was a little different than what I had in mind. It was smaller than how I had imagined it to be. I was a little disappointed to be honest. I love their library though. I saw a lot of good books for learning Korean, kpop albums, DVDs of movies and dramas. The staff were really nice and polite. I passed by the language classroom and there was a class. I stood outside the glass door watching them. I felt a little jealous seeing them learning Korean in a classroom setting and they looked like they were having fun doing an activity. It would be nice to have people to practice speaking Korean with.
Anyway, I borrowed Ewha Korean 3-1 and 3-2 books. I also wanted to borrow their copy of Complete Guide to the TOPIK but I was only allowed to borrow 2 books at a time. Oh well, I’ll borrow it next time.
I am so not confident that I will pass the exam but I would really feel bad if I didn’t give it a try. I still have over 2 months to prepare for the exam. I felt nervous after my registration was done. There’s no turning back now. Wish me luck. *keeps fingers crossed* And good luck to everyone who will be taking TOPIK this April.
