It is time for me to say a fond farewell to everyone. It has been a great privilege to share my passion and knowledge about the Korean language and culture with you. I am sad to depart from this position, but I decided to focus on my academic journey for a while.
It is time for me to wrap up this post with a brief reflection on my time as a Korean blogger for the Transparent Language.
I would like to take this 기회 (opportunity) to express my wholehearted 감사 (appreciation) to Transparent Language and my 상사 (boss) who mentored me to become a better 필자 (writer), showed me a fascinating side of being a 한국어 블로거 (Korean blogger), and allowed to share my linguistic and cultural knowledge with others.
Also, you as a 독자 (reader), provided me with countless 마음이 따스해지는 (heartwarming) 경험(experiences) over time. It has been amazing to receive 친절한 말 (kind words), ideas for content, and continuing 지지 (support) from people in many different parts of the world. Your 격려 (encouragement) and support have been the most valuable venue in my writing. I will always be grateful for your encouragement and 고마움 (appreciation).
Although I am parting with this position for now, all the blog posts will continue to be available for you to keep up with your Korean learning. I hope they will continuously interest you and 동기를 부여하다(motivate) you to improve your proficiency in the language and culture.

I feel extremely 운이 좋은 (fortunate) to be part of your Korean language learning. Learning a new language is very similar to learning a new instrument. It takes time and 꾸준한 (steady) 노력 (effort). I hope my posts have given you an opportunity to improve your Korean skills as much as I have enjoyed writing various topics and dimensions of the Korean language and culture. It has been a 정말 좋은 (splendid) journey for me.
