Learn Hangul book is now available on Amazon

Learn Hangul in One HourLearn Hangul in One Hour!

Just an update that my book, which I wrote several years ago, about learning hangul, the Korean alphabet, is now available in paperback via

I published it through PowerMeUp Publishing for now, and I’m happy with that.

I had offers years ago to publish this through some larger Korean publishing companies, but all of them wanted me to expand it into a full/complete course.

Anyone who knows me at all knows I am totally against calling anything ‘complete’ much less a language book. I think you need a wide variety of approaches, and texts when necessary, in order to learn anything and learn it well.

Thanks to everyone who has previewed and tested the book over the past few years, and I hope many more people will be able to benefit from it.

Home made bobble heads

For the past two weeks the boys have been working on bobblehead projects at art school.

I’ve bragged often about the art  school itself. I think that the teacher at Mambo does a wonderful job of engaging the students, keeping things interesting, and still helping them to be better at drawing and creating.

They did this bobble head project once before a long time ago, and at the time I thought it was kind of cool, but frankly, they didn’t do such a great job.

This time is a little different. I thought they turned out kind of interesting.

Here are some pictures for you then:
