Talk To Me In Korean Level 1 is a paperback book based on the podcast lessons available on TalkToMeInKorean.com. This book is specifically designed for absolute beginners who are self-studying and includes the fundamentals of Korean, such as “hello”, “thank you”, and essential grammar points. Additionally, because this book caters to those who are learning Korean without a teacher or formal lessons, review questions and exercises can be found in this book along with sample dialogues and reading material about Korean culture.
Level 1 focuses more on conversation and the spoken style of the language rather than the literary or academic style; therefore, you will be making sentences and having conversations in no time. This book has a set of MP3 files available for FREE download at TalkToMeInKorean.com which include all major vocabulary words, expressions, sample sentences, and dialogues used throughout the book.
If you need additional review or supplemental material to practice what you have learned in the Level 1 book, please pick up a copy of Talk To Me In Korean Level 1 Workbook!
