Makes sense then since this one sounds more akin to Overdose.

I applied for that scholarship to study Arabic two years straight and was eliminated both times in the first round. It's extremely competitive. The more obscure your major the more likely you are to get it.

I learned to speak a little Korean while I was there, but I can't read or write it.

A seemingly awesome language though.

Yeah, I've started memorizing and practicing the Hangul characters. It is interesting.

Yeah, that's the great thing about Korean - it's alphabetical. It's bound to be easier than memorizing 3,000 characters.

Yeah, I mean clearly quite a few people know Mandarin , but I don't know how you even go about trying to learn it as a second language, it seems unbelievably hard.

And on top of the fact it's not alphabetical, it's highly phonemic. My professor in Korea could write Chinese because he knew the characters, but couldn't speak it well because he didn't know the tones, which change the meaning of everything. It's hard for an English speaker to learn Arabic because of the phonology, but at least it doesn't have different tones.
