rabidbite - If I may ask, why are you studying the language? It is a fairly simple alphabet and, once you get over the initial grammar shock, a pretty systematic language. I seriously studied it for about a year and then just use it in my everyday life and am able to get by. If you have questions or what not I'd be happy to try to help. Keep in mind that I'm far from fluent. I do have a good solid working knowledge of the language, and am in a position where I could easily get anything answered/explained by native speakers.
I was bored.
No really. I needed to challenge myself.
One day i saw, Korean 101 on youtube and said. Well, frack it, why not? If i want something to break the tedium let's learn a new language.
And there it is.

rabidbite : so...if I may ask : what are you doing for living ? That seems to leave you pretty bored so I'm curious.
I administrate a family run neurological medical imaging facility. MRI, CT, EEG, Ultrasounds, blah blah. Since it is family run, there is no permanent 'administrator' hat. Sometimes I fix the machines (Electrical Engineer) sometimes I deal with human resources, sometimes i install entire computer networks (that's fun), sometimes I deal with the security network (tedious but still interesting), sometimes i freaking deliver LETTERS, sometimes i buy supplies, most of the time I deal with the books and accounting, sometimes its about designing proper regulations, sometimes its about trying to implement a better workflow to speed patient/time productivity.
My next project is to put an LCD screen with Patient registration times and their wait/appointment times so I can keep my staff working instead of answering "So when is my turn?" questions.
Why am I bored? Because I've done it for a long time so its simple plodding routine.

I have teddy bears! ... err I got my kids lots of teddy bears! Even before they were born (or conceived). The cats weren't allowed to play with them though
And as I've already publicly admitted, *I* play The Sims 3. I have ALL of 1 and 2. Stopped collecting 3 because the publishers got greedy. Charging £30+for an expansion pack, that just updated old animations, that had already been done in 2.
