Pimsleur Korean Level 1: Learn to Speak and Understand Korean with Pimsleur Language Programs

Regular Price:$113.35

Publisher's Summary

The easiest and fastest way to learn Korean

Whether you want to travel, communicate with friends or colleagues, reconnect with family, or just understand more of what's going on in the world around you, learning Korean will expand your horizons and immeasurably enrich your life.

The best part is that it doesn't have to be difficult or take years to master. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes, and we get you speaking right from the first day. Pimsleur courses use a scientifically proven method that puts you in control of your learning. If you've tried other language learning methods but found they simply didn't stick, then you owe it to yourself to give Pimsleur a try.

What's Included?

Thirty 30-minute audio lessons and 60 minutes of reading instruction to provide you with an introduction to reading Korean designed to teach you to sound out words with correct pronunciation and accent. In total, 16 hours of audio, all featuring native speakers, as well as a reading booklet and a user's guide

What You'll Learn

In the first 10 lessons, you'll cover the basics: saying hello, asking for or giving information, scheduling a meal or a meeting, asking for or giving basic directions, and much more. You'll be able to handle minimum courtesy requirements, understand much of what you hear, and be understood at a beginning level, but with near-native pronunciation skills.

In the next 10 lessons, you'll build on what you've learned. Expand your menu, increase your scheduling abilities from general to specific, start to deal with currency and exchanging money, refine your conversations, and add over 100 new vocabulary items. You'll understand more of what you hear and be able to participate with speech that is smoother and more confident.

In the final 10 lessons, you'll be speaking and understanding at an intermediate level. In this phase more directions are given in the Korean language, which moves your learning to a whole new plane. Lessons include shopping, visiting friends, going to a restaurant, plans for the evening, car trips, and talking about family. You'll be able to speak comfortably about things that happened in the past and make plans for the future.

Reading lessons are included at the end of lesson 30 to provide you with an introduction to reading the Korean alphabet. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to teach you to sound out words with Korean pronunciation and accent. A reading booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

The Korean Language

Korean, the native language of about 80 million people, is the official language of both North and South Korea. It is also spoken in neighboring Yanbian, China. There are two standard dialects, Seoul (South Korea) and P'yongyang (North Korea). Pimsleur's Korean teaches the Seoul dialect of South Korea.
