Jae-Hoon Yeon lectures in Korean at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. Series: Teach Yourself Complete Courses. Publisher: Teach Yourself Books (October 28, 2005). Since the books in the "Teach Yourself" series are all written by different authors, it's always a gamble whether you will get a superb piece of material (Teach Yourself Hindi, Vietnamese) or a piece of crap (Teach Yourself Korean). I went with this book having had good experiences with the other two, but this just does not measure up.

Comments to eBook Teach Yourself Korean: Complete Course (Teach Yourself Complete Courses) (Korean Edition)

I have this book for about 3 years now and I still don't understand it at all. I would go back and read it and I would also listen to the audio CD but it didn't help at all. Maybe its good for more advance learners but I'm still a beginner and I think that its best to learn at an elementary school level. I have been learning some words and sentences just by watching korean dramas or their variety shows. If you are a really beginner like me I wouldn't recommend this book its a waste of money. I'm regretting it already.

I had this book for a few years, attempting to study Korean from it and a fluent friend. Any time I used an expression from the book, my friend would say, "Nah dude, that's really awkward, nobody says that."

One thing that's exceptionally poor about this book is its insistence on using romanisation instead of the Korean writing system (Hangeul) even worse is that the romanisation system they use throughout the book is outdated and not used anywhere in South Korea. (Apparently sometimes it's used in the North, but that's not a plus)

When I moved to Korea I soon learned about several other resources (Talk To Me In Korean, How To Study Korean, Memrise, Mango Languages) and within two months, I had surpassed the scope of this book.

Verdict: skip this book. There are many free online resources that do a better job.

This one is more like a textbook--it is absolutely not a phrasebook--so it's not a good choice if you're trying to get enough basic Korean under your belt to get through the airport / taxi / restaurant / bathroom business while you're travelling.

From the first page, things are written in Hangul, so, again, if you don't have time to learn the Korean alphabet (which is admittedly not all that difficult) then you're going to be hobbled. If you do, though, this is a great approach in terms of attaining real expertise. Just maybe not so good for the casual student.

One thing these guys do that makes me crazy in just about every language study book is to transliterate rather than translate. So, for example, "Mwol ch'ajuseyo" gets you "What are you looking for? May I help you?" when to my way of learning it ought to get you "what (object form) look for (2nd person)?". Because now I understand the structure and I can adapt it to say other things with other nouns and verbs. (But, you know, that's just personal preference.)

I don't understand how this can be an actual product. Most of the cost is in the CD, but the CD is just a string of readings from exercises that are different from the ones in the book. Just someone reading lists of 10 Korean words or phrases. The book makes no reference to the CDs, either.
Just a strange, worthless supplement to what might be an OK book.
Flocton
This book's introduction is very helpful. However, once you get past that it can be a little overwhelming. If lots of words all at once is what you're looking for then it's good. One BIG problem I find is that the exercises are in romanized English, this is not helpful even if you are trying to learn just conversation because once you learn the korean alphabet it is actually easier to use that than English. I would recommend trying to find a book that just introduces the korean alphabet with English sounds and moves away from that romanization style right away. It does have some useful phrases in it but I think there are other better books out there.
Taun
This is not for beginners. I bought the "Learn in your car" series for Mandarin and that fantastic. That was truly something a beginner could learn. I wish they had a version for Korean. When I popped this one into the CD player, what I got was something completely different. I couldn't follow along and I wondered if I had left something supplementary that comes with it. This thing is like trial by fire or for someone who has familiarity with Korean already, cause they literally just throw phrases at you without breaking it down for the learner. This is less "Teach yourself" than it is "practice by yourself"
Mamuro
Very disappointing. The romanization is irritating and the dialogues include several mistakes.

Ojingo is squid, not octopus

Teachers would not use "nim" to refer themselves. That's like saying "I'm the Honorable John Doe."
Since the books in the "Teach Yourself" series are all written by different authors, it's always a gamble whether you will get a superb piece of material (Teach Yourself Hindi, Vietnamese) or a piece of crap (Teach Yourself Korean). I went with this book having had good experiences with the other two, but this just does not measure up.

First, you're better off skipping the lesson on writing; as the authors present the characters in Hangeul, rather than presenting them immediately next to their Roman approximations, they present 5 at a time and then bury the romanizations in the subsequent paragraph, so you have to look back and forth. Not very useful for quick reference; hadn't they ever heard of a table? I learned to write through an online tutorial instead.

Then, as many people have mentioned, they make excessive use of Roman letters throughout the text, oftentimes presenting expressions in Roman letters and not including the Hangeul equivalent, which is moronic if they expect the reader to learn to read fluently. Not only that, the glossary is written entirely in the Roman alphabet. I am thinking they got lazy in the text formatting department.

The number of typos and mistakes gets to be frustrating as well.

I wish I knew of another, better book. I have tended to like the format of the Teach Yourself series, which this book has going for it, but the individual effort for this language was sloppy and it shows. Skip this and find something better.
