Welcome to our blog! Andy here, the founder of Konju.
I’m writing this post to introduce the new Konju blog and to let you know what you can expect from us moving forward (and definitely not so I can test out our CMS). This one will be short so let’s dive in!
What will we be writing about?
We will be writing content that can be placed into three main buckets:
#1: Korean educational content
This will be the primary type of content we create. We’re a Korean educational project after all!
We will be experimenting both with articles teaching core Korean language concepts as well as fun content that covers things that you might not find in your Korean textbooks.
At the end of the day, we will be writing for you, dear reader, so feel free to send us your ideas and recommendations. We will be happy to oblige (it also makes our lives easier to not have to come up with everything ourselves 😁).
#2: Korean culture content
Our next content bucket will be interesting things (we hope) about Korea and Korean culture. This is why you’re learning Korean after all, isn’t it?
I’m a foreigner who's lived in Korea for many years, so I can share that perspective with an eye for things that are unique to Korea. We also have native Koreans on our team who will be sharing their perspective as well.
#3: Company related content
The last type of content that we will share from time-to-time will be about our company Konju itself. We’re just a baby startup figuring out things as we go, so we thought it might be interesting to share our journey with you. I’m a big fan of transparency and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about us!
Who will be writing our content?
Our team is made up of both native Korean speakers and non-native Korean learners. We think both backgrounds bring something valuable to the table.
Our native Korean speakers are naturally experts in their own language and culture. While our non-native Korean learners know what learning Korean is like from a foreigner’s perspective and what can be most challenging.
But don’t you worry! All content written by our non-native speakers will be checked for accuracy by native Korean speakers. 🇰🇷
Why are we creating a blog anyways?
We are teachers at heart and we love both to learn ourselves and to instill a love of learning in others. That’s why we created Konju!
Our main goal will be to help Korean language learners, or anyone interested in Korea for that matter, to explore more about this beautiful country, language and people! And maybe we can brighten your day a little while doing it.
Thank you so much for reading and we hope you enjoy our blog 😍
