Along with refreshingly clear English definitions, the entries are packed with helpful extra details that make learning easier: 5,600+ example sentences given in Hangeul, romanization, and English; explanations of common idiomatic expressions; and special notes to clarify differences and distinctions that can be challenging for English speakers.

English-Korean Word Finder allows two-directional use.
Romanization is included for all terms and examples, to assist learners.
Extensive notes on grammar and meaning enhance understanding and ensure correct usage.
Especially high-frequency words are marked.

"A great feature of this dictionary is the appendix of commonly used hanja (Chinese characters) in Korean. If you know some Chinese or Japanese, this is an excellent way to identify loan words in Korean you can more easily remember by associating them with the original character." --Goodreads
