An interactive workbook for beginners to learn how to write and read Korean quickly! This easy workbook has everything you need to learn the Korean scripts-clear explanations, plentiful practice exercises, and free online audio recordings by native speakers. No prior knowledge of Korean is needed! Even if you're a complete beginner, you'll soon be reading and writing Korean with confidence. This book gives you a thorough grounding in the written Korean language, including its history and basic principles, the correct alphabet order, and clear instructions on how to read, write, and pronounce all the letters. The book is divided into three sections: Section 1: Vowels and Consonants. Shows you how the individual Korean letters are written and pronounced and how they are combined to formed syllables and words. Section 2: "Say It Like a Korean!" Teaches you to pronounce the sounds of Korean naturally. Section 3: Reading and Writing Practice. Fun exercises to reinforce your skills and expand your vocabulary-with useful everyday topics such as numbers, days of the week, places, shopping, and food. The ability to recognize, write, and pronounce Korean Hangeul is reinforced through plentiful writing and listening exercises. Helpful drawings assist you to learn and remember the letters, while detailed guides show various handwriting styles and examples of poor letter formation. Printable flashcards to accompany the text are available for free online and help you to memorize and review what you learn. The approachable, conversational tones of this workbook combined with the highly effective exercises make this a perfect introduction to Hangeul for beginning Korean language learners.
