  • Integrated Korean Beginning 1
Product Description:

This is a thoroughly revised edition of Integrated Korean: Beginning 1, the first volume of the best-selling series developed collaboratively by leading classroom teachers and linguists of Korean. All series’ volumes have been developed in accordance with performance-based principles and methodology―contextualization, learner-centeredness, use of authentic materials, usage-orientedness, balance between skill getting and skill using, and integration of speaking, listening, reading, writing, and culture. Grammar points are systematically introduced in simple but adequate explanations and abundant examples and exercises.

Each situation/topic-based lesson of the main texts consists of model dialogues, narration, new words and expressions, vocabulary notes, culture, grammar, usage, and English translation of dialogues. In response to comments from hundreds of students and instructors of the first edition, this new edition features a more attractive two-color design with all new photos and drawings and an additional lesson and vocabulary exercises. Lessons are now organized into two main sections, each containing a conversational text (with its own vocabulary list) and a reading passage. The accompanying workbook, newly written, provides students with extensive skill-using activities based on the skills learned in the main text.

Audio files for this volume may be downloaded on the web in MP3 format at http://www.kleartextbook.com. A set of CDs is also available for purchase.

Product Description:

Many textbooks have been written to teach how to speak foreign languages but textbooks can only take you so far, even with the various media of videos and audio files.

The best way is to just face it head on in its natural environment. Go out there, and don’t be shy. If you are a beginner, you are bound to make mistakes. More likely, the natives will appreciate your effort to speak their language than pointing out your mistakes and laughing at it.

Children absorb languages very quickly because they are unafraid to make mistakes and are not conscientious about their grammar or pronunciation. Very young children make errors with their own first language. Although adults may laugh at the cuteness, they shrug it off and learn from their mistakes. Adults need to do the same.

Just as a note, if you have taken Japanese in the past, you will have an easier time with Korean. In this book, we will try to show some basics so that you can go into the native environment.

If you wish to test your proficiency in Korean, you can participate in TOPIK (Test of Proficiency in Korean).
