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. "
