Read & Speak Korean for Beginners (Book w/Audio CD): The Easiest Way to Communicate Right Away!
This book is a lot of fun for complete beginners who are still learning the basics. It's filled with games and puzzles which, though juvenile, can still keep you interested while you learn. Unfortunately, pronunciation and grammar are rather light in this book, so that aspect of the learning is missing. Even the audio CD isn't the greatest help when it comes to pronunciation because, though the speakers are clearly native Korean speakers, everything they say is very, very
slow, so it doesn't sound natural. To be completely fair, however, they do speed up a bit later on in the CD.
