About Easy to Learn Korean
Chad Meyer and Moonjung Kim is an American husband-Korean wife couple living in Korea, who have put together the Easy to Learn Korean Language series (and soon-to-be book) for businessmen, tourists, English teachers, military personnel, and anyone else who has a desire to speak Korean. It is a good beginner’s language book, which focuses on culture as well as practical colloquial expressions and words. So one can find information about favorite Korean food and it’s ingredients to information about moving to Korea.
Anyone with basic knowledge of Korean can use this book. It encourages to immerse yourself in whatever type of situation that life presents using situational conversations presented in bite-sized lessons. Such as, how to order food in a restaurant, buy clothes in the store, use a Korean washing machine or remote control and many more.
Easy to Learn Korean is the fastest and easiest way to immerse yourself in true conversational Korean. There are numerous books requiring a semesters worth of time just to get through basic Korean grammar. This is not one of those textbooks. And it’s also not one of those “recycled material” series that can be published in every language. While this series is not intended to get you reading a Korean newspaper or interviewing for a Korean job opening, it will jump start you through all the boring stuff and keep you interested in learning. Carry this content with you and consider it a cheat sheet for everyday life. You’ll gain the confidence you need to approach any situation that Korean life may present to you.
This series will have you answering and asking questions in Korean right from the start. First, it begins by teaching you to read and write the Korean alphabet, Han-geul (한글). Next, it guides you through the rules of grouping these letters into phonetic blocks. Fortunately, words are written fairly similar to how they sound and a weekend is enough time to learn the basics and start reading out loud. One of the many interesting things about the Korean language, Hangu-geo (한국어) , is that there are only a few simple rules to learn and few exceptions to these rules. Think about all the crazy rules in English and you’ll realize that basic Korean makes basic English look really difficult.
In creating this series for the Korea Times, they set out to design a visually appealing series that’s engrossing, entertaining, and experiential. This book provides useful and hard to find information on all aspects of Korea. Delivered from a Westerner’s perspective, it’s something that a businessman, a tourist, or even Koreans can learn from.
Koreans are proud of their heritage and will go the extra mile to assist those who are interested in their culture. Doors will open and walls will come down by simply trying to speak. There really is no better way to experience Korea, so roll up your sleeves and get started.
