My language background (Lee Songhui)

I speak two languages which are Korean and English.  I speak English more than Korea in my present life.  This is because I just speak Korean with my family at home.  Being bilingual is actually valuable to me in America, especially in New York, because I can have more job opportunity and help to translate  Korean people who can not speak English.  These affect me because I can communicate more broadly and meet more people. But at the same time I have my own struggles. Since Korean and English have very different grammatical structure I have trouble forming sentences in English.  Also, Korean people have strong accents, so in my previous classes, all professors recognized me as Korean even before I introduced myself.

  1. Yes when you said that its valuable to you for the job opportunities I totally understand since you are able to do your thing in both languages like switching it up when is needed.
