I recently started reading Korean articles and was kind of amazed by how quickly my grasp of Korean grammar, syntax, and spelling improved. Then again, my Korean grammar and spelling fundamentals are so weak and shaky that they’re bound to be fortified by any sort of exercise or practice. I mean, if you don’t even know the Korean rules for spacing,1 then it’s kind of a given you’ll catch on simply by looking at Korean sentences, by osmosis. However, I’m still convinced that reading Korean is the quickest and surest way to become proficient in Korean. After all, reading is the primary way people become better writers, build their vocabulary, learn grammar (in the case of lousy public schools), etc.
