Learning a language should not be only about grammar, words and writing exercises. It can also be about delicious recipes, learn it through recipes.
I am a difficult person when it comes to eating. I do not enjoy eating a lot of things, but sometimes I taste something and I immediately wonder where that thing has been my entire life. One of those moments was when I first tasted gochujang (고추장), Korean red chili paste.
Many months ago I started attending a small Korean class at the Korean Cultural Center in Brussels. Now that journey is nearing its end and like often with classes it can only end one way: exams! Exams are upon me and today I have my first Korean writing exam; followed next week by a Korean listening exam.
When you are interested in a country, you are also interested in its food. Same goes for me and I have been exploring the wonderful world of Korean food. A lot of the foods I discovered were simply delicious, but nothing sparked my love as much as Kimchi Jjigae.
Today I wrote a very short text in Korean about a part of my unhealthy eating habits that I really ought to change. This writing exercises explains that I do not like to eat a lot of vegetables and absolutely hate uncooked vegetables. Further I mention that I do not like a lot of fruits and do not often eat them; even the vegetables that I like.
