Oakland Hanja Survey

Hey Lovers of Hanja!

Hope you are having a good summer.

It looks like we have a new location in Downtown Oakland starting in September, very close to the BART. The time will probably be 10:30 am Saturday. Details to follow.

I am starting to think about what and how we want to study. If you think you might be interested, please take a few minutes to take this short survey (7 questions).

I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new people interested in Hanja.

Here is the link.

Oakland Hanja Class time and location survey

Hey Hanja-rators!

Several of you have mentioned that the location and time of the class are a problem for you and that you would be able to come more frequently if they were changed.

Please take the following survey (only three questions, no Hanja) if you have been attending or are seriously considering attending in January.

Thanks for your enthusiasm so far. I still find it amazing that we can get this many people to give up their Saturday morning to study Hanja. Hope you are having as much fun as I am.

Can I learn Hanja with less than fluent Korean?

Q: Can I learn Hanja with less than fluent Korean?

A: Definitely!
The main problem for most language learners once they have acquired the basic grammatical structures, either from exposure early in life or through formal training, is the learning of vocabulary which can be tedious and discouraging.

In the case of Korean, this is precisely the gap which can be filled by Hanja. Even a modest knowledge of Hanja unlocks the meaning of thousands of compound words which make up a significant part of Korean vocabulary.
