One goal that I have had during my stint as an English teacher in Korea is to learn how to cook some Korean dishes. I am not a great chef by any means and even when I lived in the United States, I rarely found the time to cook. I wanted to change that when I came to Korea because I would be living alone and I knew I would have ample time to experiment in the kitchen.
To make my learning more fun, I decided to invite some of my local friends who liked to cook over to my place. I would buy the ingredients and they would show me how to make some tasty local dishes. That seemed like a much more fun way than looking up recipes online and trying them by myself. And it has been a lot of fun. Plus, I have learned a lot of the past few months.
