Author: Yong-chol Kim, Namgui Chang
Publisher: Hollym International Corporation (2002)
Binding: Hardcover, 382 pages
This is the first Korean-language textbook being made available in decades, with such comprehensiveness and thoroughness. Designed upon the latest language teaching/learning approach, Functional Korean will enable the English-speaking learner to develop skills and strategies for manipulating the Korean language system spontaneously and flexibly and to express his/her intended messages and meaning effectively in hundreds of real-life situations. There are ample cultural notes and illustrations, which will make the learning experience entertaining as well as instructive. Accompanying the regular lesson units are useful "resource" units dealing with the Korean sounds and Han-gul, numbers, telephone, Chinese characters, and others.
