February Workshop and Q&A

Here comes the February Second Saturday Series!

Celebrating Valentine's Day, the theme of the month is "Dating and Relationship" and possibly other taboo-topics that we generally avoid. Naturally, to attend this meetup, you may need to keep your minds and views open. You must be over 21 years old.

This meetup will also get you ready for the Language Exchange later this month (pending). So please come join us!

We will have informal workshops and Q & A session in which you get to ask pretty much any question you've been wanting to ask a Korean, from pronunciation to culture to something you weren't quite sure whom to ask. As always, we will have a mixer to get to know each other during and/or after the workshop.

As always, your RSVP is strongly recommended. So please read the instruction below thoroughly. Thank you!

This is where we met last time.  For February meetup,
we have two venues we will choose from.
Saturday, Febuary 11, 2012
See the schedule below.

Koreatown, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Please RSVP and address will be emailed to you by 6 am on the day of the event.

We will learn and talk about:
  1. Greetings and Breaking Ice (Beginner/Novice)
  2. Making Suggestions and Requests (Intermediate & Higher), and/or;
  3. Cheesy pick-up lines translated into Korean (all levels)

... so that at the end of the day, you will be able to:
  • spark the conversation with someone of your interest
  • turn down someone of your non-interest
  • suggest what you want to do on your date night
  • understand a little bit about Korean dating/relationship culture

We also have:
  • Q&A and Mixer. All members, please attend; this is usually the most interesting and fun part of the day. :)

Saturday, February 11, 2012
6 AM


Please arrive early to sign in and pick up your lunch/snack/drinks

You're welcome to attend both workshops. Beginners, you're welcome to stay for the intermediate if you are up for the challenge. Just remember it is an intermediate class, and it will be conducted in Korean language. Intermediate students, please feel free to attend beginners workshops. You will have a chance to brush up your basics, which never goes out of style.

11:00~11:30ish - 한국어 원어민 및 도우미, 선생님 필수 참석 모임
반드시 참석해 주셔야 하며, 참석하지 않으신 분은 당일 이벤트에 참석하실 수 없습니다. 이해와 협조 부탁드립니다.

12:00~13:00 - Beginners Workshop

13:15~14:00 - Q & A and Mixer. Bring Your Questions!
14:15~15:30 - Workshop for Intermediate or higher.

Q & A will be a "Ask a Korean" format. Your questions are deposited in a box and randomly selected for a Korean to respond to it within a given period of time. Ask any question ranging from pronunciation to culture to something that you didn't know whom to ask.

So bring your own questions! Q & A session is as interesting and fun as you make it! You will hear individual opinions and views from native Koreans present at the mixer. (But they don't represent KLCX/KoreanLA's view.)

We always have interesting questions. Click here are some questions you asked in the past.
