This book provides both intermediate vocabulary and grammar lessons their corresponding exercises/solutions.
After mastering the contents of this book, you should have a conversational level Korean. But your vocabulary and grammar should be somewhere around a 2nd grade to 3rd grade level. In other words, this book doesn't teach any sophisticated Korean.
If you already have a conversational level Korean, you might benefit from a more advanced workbook. If you want to understand basic Korean grammar and vocabulary, I highly recommend this book.
So I bought this book, and it's great. It's divided into 24 chapters, each chapter explaining an important grammar point. In each chapter, you'll get a few pages that explain the grammar use, its use, and structure. Then you have, for each chapter between 5 and 10 application exercices that cover the material of the chapter. The textbook also has a vocabulary list for each chapter, so that you can practice using new grammar and new words. The book is straight to the point, and you'll see a noticeable improvement in your grammar skills.
I'm giving this book a 5* rating, because it's an absolute must-buy. I haven't seen any similar books for learners of intermediate levels. However, it's not exactly perfect :
- Every now and then, I noticed what seem to be typos, especially in the Korean texts. It's a bit confusing, because the language can be challenging enough, so these typos just add to the confusion.
- The exercices are a bit repetitive. There are two main types of exercices, and they only require you to modify existing sentences, by taking into account the new grammar rule. So it can be a bit annoying after a while, because exercices seem a bit easy sometimes.
Finally, and I can't stress this enough: this book alone is not enough. It is a grammar book, and you will need to have other ways to practice your Korean if you want to improve.Read more ›
The lessons are short and the exercises are well worth doing!
I would however add page numbers to the exercise key in the back.
That would make if 5 stars.
