Mostly because I'm better at speaking and understanding. I didn't really cultivate my reading skills when I was younger, and I didn't have access to many Korean books then. Lately, though, I've been trying to improve my language skills by developing a more robust vocabulary and studying a bit of grammar when I have time. I've been reading from my Korean Bible and some devotional books lately, so my reading skills have definitely improved!

Welcome Carley! Glad to have you here.

Sun-muffin, a hearty welcome to NarniaWeb! :) And what a cute username. ;))

I'm with you in your favourite of the Chronicles, although with me it's probably TSC first, then THaHB a close second. ;)) 'Tis odd that I did not care as much for THaHB when I was a child ('though I still really liked it), but as I grew well into adulthood, I appreciated the depth of that tale so much more.

Indeed, aren't the audio dramas fabulous?!! :D I become so involved in them that 'woe betide' anyone who dares interrupt. :P

That is cool you used to own a horse! Might you have one again someday, do you think? Starkat, one of the mods here, has a passion for horses too. :)

Agreed that music is so wonderful. I didn't really think much about soundtracks until The Fellowship of the Ring was first released, and then it hit me how amazing they can be!

Re your interests, we do have a Food Discussion topic. And there is a Favorite Music thread, in case you are interested. :)

There used to be a fashion thread here, but I think it has been quiet for ages. :P I can try and find it. ... Aha, found it!, although it hasn't been active since late 2016. :P

We are glad you're here. Enjoy the discussions! :)
