In my 28 years long life I was interested in few different cultures. In primary school, instead of teenage magazines, I read American history books. In high school I used to spend time on reading Ukrainian literature which I switched to Czech a few years later. I had opportunity to learn Russian, Ukrainian, Latin, Old Church Slavic, Czech and Korean. My way of thinking about languages represents a Czech proverb: “Kolik jazyků znáš, tolikrát jsi člověkem”, which verbally means: “The more languages you know, the more human you are”. The deeper meaning is obvious I guess: “You live a new life for every new language you speak. If you know only one language, you live only once”. I’ve been interested in Korea and its culture since 2009 and it’s the first time for me when the more I know, the more I want to know. I came to Korea in August 2011 as an exchange student and studied at Keimyung University in Daegu. Currently, I live and work in a city that simply takes your breath away, a city I absolutely love and would recommend to everyone, Seoul. This blog is meant to show my experience with everything that concerns Korea as a person who was born and lived in Poland most of her life.
