If you ask people “Why are you learning Korean?” or “Why do you want to learn Korean?” the answers will vary: Some might want to learn because they love K-pop, some want to communicate with Korean friends or family, while others live in Korea and feel it would be useful to speak more Korean instead of relying on English all the time. Whatever the reason may be, and no matter how impossible it may seem, as long as you have a clear idea of what you want to accomplish and apply some intrinsic motivation, you will succeed.

Tired of studying with books all the time and not sure whether what you are learning right now will be useful in your everyday life? How about listening to a nice song in Korean and humming along?
If you want to know the song better, you will naturally want to understand the lyrics. And having a natural desire to know something that you don’t know now is one of the best motivations you can have in learning.
