I've been living in Korea, studying Korean from Korean-only textbooks. Having access to a modern, grammar-oriented, comprehensive textbook in English is a miracle at this point. It helps me articulate the points I've learned as well as the things I've picked up here and there but never fully understood.

I can't give it five stars because for some reason, there is no spacing between words in the example Korean sentences. Its headache-inducing to read so when I bought Continuing Korean, I fully expected to skip over 2/3 of the book and cherry-pick the information I need. However, that book has correct formatting!

Publishers, *please* fix the formatting issue, as for most first-time learners, it is more than enough to convince them to give up at the get-go.

Well, after coming off of "Teach Yourself Korean", I found this book to be refreshing. It teaches at a slower pace, and better emphasizes the hangul -- I don't like using english letters for a language that doesn't use them. I found the pronunciation key to be helpful, so long as you ignored that international gobbledy-gook they use in the first two or three chapters.

Other than that, it presents the information in a very teachable way, and the cd is helpful in practicing your pronunciation. Especially if you get the corresponding workbook....just make sure you have the right edition of the workbook, or else it won't match this. However, it's not a requirement to learn from this book.

The downside, however, is that it really is a textbook. It presents the material in a teaching manner. While this doesn't bother me at all, being a visual learner, but it could be off-putting to the people who don't want to feel like they're back in school. Though the plus side of that is that this could be a really good textbook for an actual class. Really depends on your perspective, but you can learn something from this no matter how you see things.

This is a decent book to help you learn phrases and words, but it is only a supplement for on the side. I found it a little confusing and wish they had made it a little easier for the pronunciation of things. I didn't spend as much time on the book as I would have liked, since it was hard to keep my attention

The information presented in Elementary Korean is essentially the backbone of my present Korean ability. In each lesson, aspects of Korean grammar are nicely layered on to what you have already learned in the previous lessons. Plus, this book forces you to learn Hangul because romanization is not given after the fourth lesson. This makes it a good resource for those intimidated by the Korean writing system.

This book is an authentic textbook (like something one would certainly use in an university Korean language course), but it is well-equipped for the self-learner as well. The vocabulary presented in this text is clear and relevant; however, you won't realize this until the sixth lesson (Lesson 5 introduces some odd vocabulary like "imported goods"). Also, the grammar notes are just detailed enough so that one can grasp the information without much external help.

The dialogues presented at the beginning of each lesson are informative and sometimes amusing. And, usually, there are additional sentences for reading after the dialogues. The book provides many examples for each of the Korean grammar concepts it teaches, so you will learn exactly how to use them. It should also be noted that this book mainly deals with the polite style of Korean speech, but it introduces the other styles as well.

The audio CD contains native speakers acting out the dialogues and reading the example sentences used in each lesson. Unfortunately, only the vocabulary from Lesson 5 is read on the CD. Personally, I find that the readers speak too quickly, but this can be easily remedied by slowing down the audio with Windows Media Player or something similar.

The end-of-lesson exercises are highly pertinent to the material presented in the text, and the answers for every exercise is presented in the back of the book. I have noticed, however, that a few of the answers are incorrect. Ultimately, I suggest buying Elementary Korean Workbook along with this text. The lessons are thoroughly expounded in the workbook, and you get additional listening practice as well.

On a final note, there is an index and glossary in the back. The Hanja for certain terms are displayed in the glossary, but this feature is not that useful for beginners with no background in Chinese characters.

I thoroughly recommend this textbook for any newcomer to the Korean language.

An excellent, college-level textbook! Studied with a highschooler and I had to make some revisions in pronunciations. I highly suggest for someone with some Korean background, otherwise you could get lost. The accompanying CD is excellent to listen to and repeat after. Excellent to pair with the Workbook (sold separately) for any serious student of Korean language. Would not recommend as a self-learning tool. A knowledgeable teacher is absolutely recommended.

Since I am looking mostly for reading/writing proficiency I find this to be a great book.

+ The grammar notes are clear and well illustrated.
+ The vocabulary is a lot but not completely overwhelming. The authors try to group closely related words physically close together to reduce the cost of learning new vocabulary.
+ Better than Myondo in presentation of material. Instead of spreading out related grammar material, it tries to present them together.
+ What I think is really great are the pronunciation rules ... you won't find this kind of practicality and detail in most other text. (Now, Myondo is very detailed but describing ssang-chiut as a voiceless alveo-palatal glottalized affricative isn't particularly helpful to me).
+ No Chinese characters are used in this book which is a plus at this level since Chinese characters rarely appear in the main text of popular Korean newspapers anyway
+ The authors actually provide a decent number of exercises with ANSWERS in the back! Now what they need to publish next is a supplementary reading and exercise book.

- I concur with a previous reviewer that the CD does not have enough basic sound examples.

4.5 stars.
