Description of this Book

This book shows the fun and easy way to start speaking Korean. There are 42 million native Korean speakers, including more than 1 million in the U.S., and knowledge of Korean is increasingly in demand due to South Korea's growing economic influence and North Korea's continuing international security issues. This fun and easy guide helps people pick up basic skills in this challenging language. Complete with a CD featuring sample dialogues in MP3 format, it covers grammar, numbers, greetings and introductions, small talk, phone conversations, eating and drinking, money, transportation, directions, shopping, recreation, and emergencies. Jungwook Hong (Charlottesville, VA) created a Korean language program and taught beginning-level Korean at the University of Virginia, where he also helped found the Korean Studies Organization. He has worked as an interpreter at international business conferences.
