Overall, for non Korean speakers, this is a fantastic and extremely simple book to start and appreciate the language!
Although this helps, it may take a few days after your first practice to get the hang of Hangeul (the written language made for commoners after King Sejong wanted everyone about to read, despite the lack of education). I was able to identify vowels during a trip outside.
(I live in Lynnwood, Washington, a hub city predominantly filled with Koreans as the major minority, as seen along the intersecting Highway 99 going south, so many signs are in Korean Hangeul)
Still, as with any learning process, applying yourself is the number one priority when studying new subjects.
I truly desire to learn Korean. To me, it is a very beautiful language. I love that the book has other ways of writing Hangeul so that you are able to understand regardless of what you're reading. I'm not giving up. This IS a really good book, I just think the arrangement needs work or maybe I need to understand the way Hangeul is supposed to be learned. AGAIN, this is a really good book, I just became frustrated with it at a certain point.
I also loved that there was a history about the language as well as examples for most items for learning. I will recommend this book to others because it is very helpful.
This books information is also not completely accurate; Made my Korean friends kind of angry.
Everything in this book can be found with a quick google search, anyways.
I have some Korean kids at my high school and I've been meaning to talk to them. This is a great first step because in learning Korean, you need to learn how to write/read in Hangul first.
I learned quickly and soon realized that its going to be a challenging quest to learn Hangul. As stated in the book, "At first you will smile but you'll quickly cry" Or something along those lines. I'm too lazy to get up and check. Pardon me xD
