Have you ever considered learning Korean, but been put off by the unusual look of the characters? Don't let yourself be scared away! Korean has been called “the most logical language there is,” and with this friendly and thorough introduction you will soon see why. As the more than 1 million Americans who speak Korean can attest, Korean is here to stay, and generations of young (and older) adults are determined to learn it. This book is for people who want a grasp of how to speak, write and understand Korean—and who want to enjoy things while they're at it! Using a lighthearted, humorous approach, Korean for Beginners starts by showing you just how reasoned and logical the Korean alphabet actually is, and helps you master it faster than you learned the English alphabet. Realistic situations you might encounter in Korea are described, and new words are explained in terms of how you'll find them useful to communicate. The CD-ROM lets you listen and repeat, and will help you soon say with pride, “I know Korean!”
