About the Book

Basic Korean: A Grammar and Workbook comprises an accessible reference grammar and related exercises in a single volume.

This book presents twenty-five individual grammar points, covering the core material which students would expect to encounter in their first year of learning Korean. Grammar points are followed by examples and exercises which allow students to reinforce and consolidate their learning.

Basic Korean is suitable for both class use as well as independent study. Key features include:

  • a clear, accessible format
  • many useful language examples
  • all Korean entries presented in Hangul with English translations
  • jargon-free explanations of grammar
  • abundant exercises with a full answer key
  • a subject index.

Clearly presented and user-friendly, Basic Korean provides readers with the essential tools to express themselves in a wide variety of situations, making it an ideal grammar reference and practice resource for both beginners and students with some knowledge of the language.

About the Series

Grammar Workbooks

These titles combine explanation with exercise work. The Basic Grammar Workbooks are for learners starting at elementary level. Intermediate Grammar Workbooks follow on from these and are for learners who have achieved basic proficiency and wish to progress to more complex language. Each combines clear, concise grammar explanations with communicatively oriented exercises to help build confidence and fluency.
Suitable for independent learners and students on taught courses, the Basic and Intermediate volumes together form a structured course of the essentials of each language's grammar.

All Grammar Workbooks are available as inspection copies.
