Numbers in Spanish: To Order Tacos!

If you have street tacos track or stand near you, we highly recommend trying their foods! Not to mention they have authentic tastes and flavors, it is usually less expensive than dining in Mexican restaurant. Trying as many tacos track as possible while we are in Los Angeles might be one of our pleasures. Another reason that I enjoy being there is to learn (or just listen to) Spanish; Most people order and converse with the vendors in Spanish. I have never tried ordering in Spanish yet, but before I leave LA, I'd like to try it at least once. Hence, I made a memo of the minimum necessary Spanish …

Vocabulary Building: Divergent Chapter 1

I am a huge fan of the Divergent series written by an American novelist Ms. Veronica Roth in 2011.

I might be wrong, but this is what I caught from the scene of the episode. This …


"그래" and Its Similar Sounding Words

The following are affirmatives, conjunctions, and other words that have similar sounds to "그래." I heard them a lot in a Korean drama named BLACK (highly recommended K-drama!). These words are also frequently used in other Korean dramas & movies. BLACK is a Korean show with a mixing genre of horror, mystery, comedy, romance, action, and more.

Though I expected quite a different happy ending, I love the story overall. Full of foreshadowings that eventually …
