A 600-page book with 100 lessons
Korean as presented in this course is based on standard Korean, a dialect from Seoul in South Korea. This does not mean that the Korean spoken in the south and north are different. It is the same language but since the country was split in two in 1945, the lexicon, intonation, pronunciation and writing have progressively moved in different directions.
Learning Korean is not difficult, but the language is very different to French. Since different students have different aims, we have provided a transliteration of dialogues throughout the work for those who do not wish to learn to write in Korean. It will also be useful for everyone, since you can recognise things more easily than with this almost unrecognisable alphabet!
Recordings of all the texts and translation exercises are available separately. Recorded by Korean actors, they are a vital learning asset. The title is:한국어 - 2 audio CDs (9782700518818), 1 USB stick (9782700518825) or 1 MP3 download (3135414906864).
