Some Useful Learning Materials

Korean at a Glance

This Korean phrasebook is a real gem. It's jam-packed full of useful expressions and phrases, which have been written both phonetically and in the original Korean text. The only gripe that I have with this book is that it is written strictly for formal Korean speech. From a business or vacation point of view, this would not be an issue, but if you plan to speak in a more informal setting, this book won't teach you the informal Korean used among friends. That said, the book also contains some handy maps of Seoul and its subway system, as well as a lot of interesting cultural information.

Korean, Basic: Learn to Speak and Understand Korean with Pimsleur Language Programs

In true Pimsleur fashion, the key to this product is repetition. It is excellent for learning basic phrases and the audio CDs work hard to teach Korean pronunciation. Each phrase is broken down into syllables which you are then encouraged to repeat as the lesson progresses. Sentence structure is also explained in good detail and the phrases are spoken by both a male and a female speaker. Though this won't teach you to speak anything beyond basic Korean, the pronunciation practice it offers for beginners makes it worth the price.

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.
