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, hangeul, actually is, and helps you master it faster than you learned the English alphabet. Realistic situations you might encounter in Korea in Korean-speaking environments are described, and new words are explained in terms of how you'll find them useful to communicate. Numerous illustrations enliven the text. Soon you'll be able to say with pride, "I know Korean!"

About the Author

Henry J. Amen, IV, is a freelance editor and writer of language learning materials; he learned Korean by being plunged into the busy streets of Seoul on a business trip.

Kyubyong Park works at a Korean publishing company that creates practice books for Koreans learning English.

Industry Reviews

"With its tricky pronunciation, complex grammar and elaborate honorific forms, the Korean language can present a daunting prospect. This was the first book I used. it is a nice option if you prefer a gentle introduction to Korean. It's also entertaining with plenty of cultural information packed it." -Perapera Language Tools blog
"This was such a delightful book! I'd like to note that this book truly IS for beginners wanting to learn the language without having to take a class. the way Park Kyubyong Songsaengnim (with the help of Henry J. Amen IV) has set up the book works quite well with learning to read + write Hangul and the included cd-rom helps with pronunciation. I appreciate at how casually it's written as well, allowing you to take a breather at the more challenging parts while still hammering home all the needed details ... if you're interested in learning the language, I definitely recommend that you start with this book." -Goodreads
"So far, as explanations of Korean grammar go, this was the best resource I've come across. It explains complex grammar in ways that make them easy to understand and replicate in other contexts." -Eurolinguiste blog
