Author: Nam-Kil Kim
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press (2000)
Binding: Paperback, 412 pages
Summary:
"Modern Korean breaks new ground in the field of Korean studies by providing students at last with an intermediate-level language text. The volume emphasizes the development of reading proficiency, but the exercises reinforce skills learned through conversation practice. They use a communicative approach emphasizing student-student and student-teacher interactions in real-life scenarios. Twenty-four lessons are divided into two groups of twelve lessons each. A single lesson consists of a main text, written in expository or descriptive prose that often incorporates a conversational style; a dialogue; a discussion of new word usage and structural patterns; substitution and grammar drills; exercises; and a vocabulary list. The second half of the book introduces Chinese characters found in each lesson. Modern Korean may be used for classroom instruction or self-study. Main text topics cover a wide range of subjects including Korean history, geography, holidays, literature, customs, and people, allowing students to develop a better understanding of Korean society and culture while improving their language skills.

Historical, Literary, and Cultural Approach to the Korean Language (text & cassettes)

Image of Historical, Literary, and Cultural Approach to the Korean Language (Text & cassettes)
Author: Jong-Rok Kim, Alexander Arguelles
Publisher: Hollym International Corporation (2000)
Binding: Perfect Paperback, 318 pages
Summary:
"Approach to the Korean Language: Historical, Literary, and Cultural was written in an attempt to fill the need for a scholarly method for learning to speak, to understand, and--above all--to read Korean. While daily conversational ability is not ignored, this book, as the title indicates, is primarily concerned with presenting the language in its cultural context. This introductory volume presupposes no knowledge of the language. After pronunciation and writing systems (both the Korean alphabet and the use of Chinese characters) are introduced, grammar is systematically presented and drilled through lessons whose text passages concern Korean history and cultural traditions. An answer key to the exercises is provided so that students who purchase the accompanying cassettes can use this method to study Korean on their own. "
