10 Great Apps That Teach Hangul

A lot of the online sites and curriculum that we tried for Korean expected us to already be able to read in Hangul. That is frustrating, which is one of the reasons I highly recommend the italki community as well as Talk to me in Korean for getting started.

Visiting the Hello Kitty Cafe in Sinchon, Seoul! - These Temporary Tents by Aadel Bussinger. Can you guess where we went this week?!

Visiting the Hello Kitty Cafe in Sinchon, Seoul! - These Temporary Tents by Aadel Bussinger

If anyone was exited to move to Korea, it was Denna. She did a lot of research before we left on what fun things there were to do and explore. We made a bucket list of all her favorite choices. Number 1 on the list? Visit a Hello Kitty Cafe. There are several Hello Kitty locations in Seoul, but we just happened to be going to Edae to a yarn shop (it was an emergency – you have to believe me) and the cafe was just one subway stop away. We got the directions and a great idea of what to expect from the Cute In Korea blog.

Since we got off at the Edae station, we ended up just walking down to the Sinchon station and start our search from there. This area of Seoul was very interesting – all kinds of fun little shops to stop and browse in. UHS Thursday: Gwacheon Science Museum! - These Temporary Tents by Aadel Bussinger.

And we might have freaked out a little afterwards with the thought that there might not be anything like that here in Korea. But never fear! We found an amazing science museum that not only had dinosaur bones, but animated dinosaurs! And tons of other cool stuff! The Gwacheon Science Museum (aka Scientorium) is located just South of Seoul at the Seoul Grand Park subway station. View Adventures In Seoul in a larger map Hands-on, family science fun! UHS Thursday: Pyounghwa (Peaceful) Park - These Temporary Tents by Aadel Bussinger. When you hear the word park – what is the image that comes into your mind?

UHS Thursday: Pyounghwa (Peaceful) Park - These Temporary Tents by Aadel Bussinger

When I was a kid, it conjured images of swings, fields of grass to play sports, and maybe a sand pit for volleyball. Living all over the country, we noticed that the word park could mean different things. Sometimes we were very disappointed when discovering that a park on a map was really just a glorified playground. Or the kids would find it weird that a park was just a walking path and no real place to play. Here in Seoul, there seems to be two distinct kinds of areas you can find.

Before the weather got too cold, we wanted to take a few more little day trips around Seoul to visit some of the places on our bucket list.

Koreans celebrate two New Year celebrations – Sinjeong 신정 is the solar new year on January 1st. Then they celebrate again on the lunar near year, called Seollal 설날. This holiday is all about family – the roads next week will be packed with people travelling to their hometowns (or people coming to Seoul). Some people only celebrate the New Years eve and day while others spend the whole 15 days – until the first full moon of the month – with family. Businesses and restaurants will be closed, much like Thanksgiving and Christmas day in the states. Namsangol Hanok Village - Unschoolers Have Seoul.

Namsangol Hanok Village - Unschoolers Have Seoul

Spring has sprung here in South Korea, and that means moods are better, the scenery is greener, and people are venturing out in droves! February was just kind of a blah month for us, even though we celebrated Denna’s 9th birthday and had some fun bowling and playing MtG as a family at the local USO. But now that the weather is the picture of paradise, we have been able to walk to the park more and go on some family trips on the weekends. A couple weekends ago, just as the cherry blossoms were starting to appear, we took a short subway ride over to the other side of Namsan mountain.

Our plans were to visit the Namsangol Hanok village, a group of traditional houses in a free park. Each of the hanok, or traditional Korean houses are furnished in the historical style and have openings that you can peer inside to get an idea of what life was like back in the Joseon Dynasty. The park is set up like a village, complete with outdoor features. Lesson 1: Basic Korean sentences and Korean particles. Click here for a workbook to go along with this lesson.
