Description

Product Description

This workbook accompanies the thoroughly revised third edition of Integrated Korean: Beginning 1, the first volume of the best-selling series developed collaboratively by leading classroom teachers and linguists of Korean. All the series’ volumes have been developed in accordance with performance-based principles and methodology―contextualization, learner-centeredness, use of authentic materials, usage-orientedness, balance between skill getting and skill using, and integration of speaking, listening, reading, writing, and culture. Grammar points are systematically introduced in simple but adequate explanations and abundant examples and exercises.

Each situation/topic-based lesson of the main texts consists of model dialogues, narration, new words and expressions, vocabulary notes, culture, grammar, usage, and English translation of dialogues. In response to comments from hundreds of students and instructors of the second edition, the new third edition features an attractive color design with new photos and drawings and lesson and vocabulary exercises that have been fully reorganized. Each lesson contains a conversational text (with its own vocabulary list) and a reading passage. The workbook―available online as well as in paperback―provides students with extensive skill-using activities based on the skills learned in the main text.

Integrated Korean is a project of the Korean Language Education and Research Center (KLEAR) with the support of the Korea Foundation. In addition to the five-level Integrated Korean textbooks and workbooks, volumes include Korean Composition, Korean Language in Culture and Society, Korean Reader for Chinese Characters, Readings in Modern Korean Literature, A Resource for Korean Grammar Instruction, and Selected Readings in Korean.

Audio files for this volume may be downloaded on the web in MP3 format at http://www.kleartextbook.com.

I can’t speak on the quality of the earlier editions, but this 3rd edition is lacking two important things.
1) an answer key
2) audio to go along with the book

“Well, you have to buy the members access for the answer key”

Very true! It’s actually a really cheap and reasonable price for a lifetime membership. However, the answer key clamoring to be the 3rd edition of this book, does not match up at all. I’m wondering if it’s perhaps of an earlier edition.

Secondly, the kleartext website DOES have the audio for the narrations of the actual textbook. However, I can’t seem to find the audio for the workbook. If it’s out there and I’m overlooking it, I’ll be glad to admit my wrongs. But so far, it’s not been accessible for me. Flipping through the book, it seems to be well composed. It appears to be aimed at an absolute beginner, which I’m not. It breaks down consonants and vowels. Etc. I haven’t decided on whether I’m going to attempt to do it or not. A lot of the exercises are “write what you hear” types of questions. Which is difficult to do when there’s no Audio. I more than likely will shelve it and use other resources.

So I don’t recommend this book based on my experience. Maybe try to get the 2nd edition. It’s a lot cheaper. I’m assuming they have more information on it.

Ive uploaded picture comparing this book with the answer key I purchased. The table of contents are even different.

This book looks really good and has a lot of information in it however, there is no audio for the activities. As you can see in the picture I provided a majority of the activities are listening activities and I have scoured the web looking for the audio to accompany the workbooks and have not found them. I feel like at some point they are going to make an audio but until then I’m returning the books unfortunately.

They claim you can download the audio but it''s only streamable through SoundCloud. I''ve tried reaching out to them several times about this because they explicitly say you can download the audio files but they haven''t been responding to any attempts at reaching out to them

Great book series. Learning grammar and growing my Korean skills. The text book is best used with the workbook but buying both is hella expensive.

No answer key. So you don’t know if what you do in the book is correct or not. This book is being used in a class I’m taking, and when I asked the instructor for the key to the exercises, he told me not to worry about. So again, no feedback means you have no idea if you got it or not. There are better materials out there for self study that have audio files and answer keys so you can see if what you need to focus on to improve. See Talk to me in Korean, or How to study korean websites. Their books and downloadable PDFs give great feedback and are cheaper than this text book and work book.

I love the formatting of the book. It''s maybe not the most beginner friendly for novice language learners, but it is very easy to follow. Excited to advance and finish the book

KLear is so greedy, you have to pay 10$ on their website to get the answer key for their books. Who does that?!?!?!
