Welcome!

I created this blog initially as a place to store my notes from my Korean lessons, but realised it made more sense as a generic language blog as I'm also learning other languages (though not as actively since I'm focusing on Korean).

I've started to document my learning in other areas as well, so I will include posts from other areas from time to time.

Before it all gets out of hand and I throw up my hands in defeat at trying to organise, I decided to keep a list of my posts here (which I'll hopefully remember to update).
