I registered an hour ago. So far I am loving this site. There are tons of good postings, info, and materials here.
A thought occurred to me while reading a posting. I don't mean any disrespect, nor do I feel smug about my superior Korean-speaking ability and superior knowledge about Korean culture, but the poster wrote, "a speck of go-chu-jang" or something to that effect. Technically, it's a speck of go-chu-ga-ru, for go-chu-jang is basically paste, whereas go-chu-ga-ru is powder.
On that note, I welcome shout-outs from other Korean-wherever teachers.
