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 You'll Learn 

Builds upon skills taught in Pimsleur Korean Level 1

In the first 10 lessons you'll begin using the past tense. Structures become more complex, and informal speech is introduced. Soon you'll take part in conversations about ordering meals, shopping, and local tourist attractions. As you progress, your fluency will increase as your vocabulary expands. 

The next 10 lessons will allow you to further combine and build upon known elements and produce longer and more complex sentences. You'll be discussing business and social activities, expressing your interests, and talking about the weather. 

In the final 10 lessons, you'll double your vocabulary and have several hundred structures to draw upon. You'll learn to express yourself with relative structures - faster, slower, etc. You'll be able to ask for assistance in many situations and to ask for directions to various locations. You'll explore sports and leisure activities, manage changing money and banking, and discuss travel plans. By the end of the program, you'll be speaking at a mid-intermediate level with near-native pronunciation, and you'll be comfortable meeting most social demands and limited job requirements. 

Reading lessons, which build upon the reading skills acquired in level 1, are included at the end of lesson 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Korean. 

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.

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." (AudioFile magazine)
