About Easy to Learn Korean

Anyone with an interest in Korea can use this book. It encourages readers to immerse themselves in whatever type of situation that life presents, using situational conversations presented in bite-sized lessons, and experience Korean life. Situations include: ordering food in a restaurant or by phone, buying clothes at a department store, finding your way around Seoul’s Gangnam District, and using a Korean washing machine or remote control.

Easy to Learn Korean is the fastest and easiest way to immerse yourself in true conversational Korean. There are many books requiring a semesters worth of time just to get through basic Korean grammar and no spoken Korean. This is not a textbook and it’s also not a “reuseable generic” series that can be published in any language for any country. We love Korea and focus on what’s special about Korea. While the series is not intended to get you to read a Korean newspaper or to interview for a Korean job opening, it will jumpstart your interest in learning Korean and push you to use it in the real world. Carry this content with you and use it as a cheat sheet for everyday Korean life. You’ll gain the confidence you need to approach any situation that Korean life may present to you.

The book begins by teaching basic reading and writing skills for the Korean alphabet, Han-geul (한글). Next, it guides you through the rules of grouping these letters into phonetic blocks. Fortunately, words are written fairly similar to how they sound and a weekend is enough time to learn the basics and to start reading out loud. One of the many interesting things about the Korean language, Hangu-geo (한국어), is that there are just a few rules to learn and only a few exceptions to those rules. Think about all the crazy grammar we have in English and you’ll realize that basic Korean makes basic English look difficult.

In creating this series for the Korea Times, Chad and Moon-Jung set out to design a visually appealing series that’s engrossing, entertaining, and experiential. This book provides useful and hard to find information on all aspects of Korea. Delivered from a Westerner’s perspective, it’s something that a businessman, a tourist, or even Koreans can learn from.

Koreans are proud of their heritage and will go the extra mile to assist those who are interested in their culture. Doors will open and walls will come down by simply trying to speak. There really is no better way to experience Korea. Roll up your sleeves and let’s get started together!

Easy to Learn Korean, now has a website and a forum where you can interact with fellow learners to improve your Korean and at the same time help others with their Korean Language Skills.
