Book Description

Study Abroad in Korea prepares students for study in Korean by providing the reader with key expressions and guidance on certain aspects of culture and language idiosyncratic to Korea, focusing on everyday scenarios.

Key features include:

  • Key expressions throughout the book, providing practical linguistic knowledge with jargon-free explanations.
  • Exposes readers to contextualised, real-life situations through dialogues between two characters: one of whom is bilingual and teaching in Korea, the other is a student studying abroad.
  • Discussions of important historical events and social issues accompany relevant chapters.

Aimed at those who possess a basic knowledge of Korean who wish to develop their linguistic knowledge in preparation for relocation to Korea, this book is ideal for Lower-Intermediate and A2 level students of Korean, or for self-study.
