I highly recommend this tool to students and teachers!
I am very articulate in English, but since it is my third language, there are sometimes random words like a c-clamp or a grasshopper or loafers that I just don't know. It surprises people because my English is so good and they don't hear the trace of an accent and I can write amazing philosophical essays. So there was just this inconsistency between my knowing what a term like "wreak havoc" means and my not knowing what a "grasshopper" is. Weird.
I couldn't find an appropriate book to fill in some of the gaps I have in my vocabulary. The ones I found were either too easy or too abstract. This one is concrete and complete. I probably know about 75% of the words in it, but that 25% I'm going to learn with this, that random 25% that gives me a headache sometimes when I'm trying to describe stuffs, will make me feel like a native speaker. This book is just too perfect.
I'll recommend it to everyone I know.
1. There's no pinyin - so you never know who to pronounce the Chinese words
2. It's using traditional characters (so it may not help if u are visiting mainland China)
The sample they showed doesn't help until you buy it since it was generic and didn't include any Chinese. I've included a photo shot to explain what I mean.
I'll still keep it, but I wish ahead of time what I was getting.
There are practice phrases in English (with the Korean translation of each), and English-Korean and Korean-English glossaries in the Index at the end, with references to the pages where these words occur.
When I gave it to her and she flipped through it to see what it was (she was at first puzzled), she was delighted, and beamed with gratitude as she hugged me. In another month or so, we shouldn't need to speak pidgin with one another anymore!
