Publisher Description

Korean Stories for Language Learners introduces 42 traditional Korean folktales with bilingual Korean and English versions, presented on facing pages, together with detailed notes and exercises aimed at beginning learners of the language. The book can be used as a reader in first- and second-year Korean language courses or by anyone who wishes to learn about Korean folktales and traditional Korean culture. This elegantly illustrated volume is designed to help language learners expand their vocabulary and to develop a basic familiarity with Korean culture. The stories gradually increase in length and complexity throughout the book as the reader improves their vocabulary and understanding of the language. After the first few stories, the reader is asked to use the vocabulary in speaking and writing exercises. By reading these classic stories, they also are given a window into Korean culture and learn to appreciate the uniqueness of the country-which provides greater motivation to continue learning the difficult language. Cultural notes and discussion questions further reinforce one's understanding of the stories, and bolster one's language skills. Korean-English and English-Korean glossaries are included as well as an overview of the Korean Hangeul script. Audio recordings by native speakers help readers improve their pronunciation and inflection.

Review

"...comes with an MP3 collection that is an absolute joy to listen to. The reader speaks in a very clear voice and articulates words clearly-even on the higher-level stories." - Mezzofanti Guild "...a great bilingual reader for beginners to mid-intermediate learners [...] For those without a CD player, Tuttle also offers downloadable audio files from their website. This is so important, because most laptops don't come with the CD drive anymore. Always love the little touches like this-shows that the author / publishing house understands the readers' needs." -Hangukdrama & Korean blog
