Today, we learned a conversation on sharing our plans for the weekend. Have you ever been to famous places in Korea? If yes, where do you often go? What are some of the special characteristics that these places have? What do you do when you go to those places?

Hannah : I recommend that a place called Han-gang river in Korea. There’s so many activities that you can enjoy, especially during summer, in Han-gang river. So over there you can have picnic there and also order chicken delivery and also pizza and also during summer nigh time there so many free concert and other culture activities. And i also a place of volunteer work in Han-gang river over there. I also dance and do flashmop during summer time. It was so unforgettable memories for me.

Helene : One of my favorite places in Korea is Noraebang or Garaoke Room. I remember the first time I came here, there so many Noraebangs. But I was too shy to sing there so I was singing really slightly in the microphone, but now I like to go there just to release stress and have fun with friends and I sing loudly like Beyoncé. And another great place is Yeonnamdong, which is the area that has nice restaurants and small cafes and stores and streets are kind of narrow, so it’s really nice to go there with your friends.

Nattanan : I like to look around in the museum. In Thailand, maybe all of the museum, we have to pay for the ticket when we go to there. But, in Korea I went to the National Museum of Korea. I don’t have to pay for the ticket. There very big and have a lot of things of histories I took about 3 hours when I went to there. It so tired but it so fun. I see. Now, I am sure that you can question people about their plans of going somewhere for the weekend and respond to them with your answers. When you meet a Korean person, have a conversation. “Where are you planning to go on the weekend? “Really? Let’s go together.”
