Studying Grammar

Undoubtedly, the backbone of any language is grammar. So when learning a new language, is it essential that you learn grammar and internalize it. However, many people differ in their opinion of how to go about this. Some people like to fully understand grammar before really using it. Other people like to learn naturally through conversation and context. Both have advantages and disadvantages. Try them both out for yourself and see which one works best for you. The Korean learning journey is not so much a set path as it is one of experimentation. Try things, see how they feel, adapt. Rinse. Repeat.
