ltfannsa Another post that caught my eye on @belajarkorea. I've come across an online forum that showed how Konglish has affected the usage of language in the country, even when the English words get mispelled, like... most of the time.

Some examples of hilarious Konglish signs that I've seen (those with English errors) :
쓰레기를 즐입시다 -> Don't waste wastes (While it should be "Do not litter")
쇼킹 핫 양념치킨 -> Fried Chicken with Freaking Sauce (Aw.. I wonder, what's in the ingredients?) And the sign on this picture is misspelled as well. It is so funny that you can't believe someone didn't catch it before it made it to the printing room.

But that's not the point, right? Here's what I quoted from thediplomat.com regarding the future of English in South Korea : "In the past, Koreans were expected to apologize before speaking English, and to do so with humility. That is no longer the case. Increasingly now I find Koreans unafraid to approach me, speaking in English." It's not all about the bad English infiltrating the minds and culture, anyway. As for learning a language, confidence is the first step. I believe the same goes for our country. Keep on posting cool stuff like this @belajarkorea ------
