Description

Includes 30 lessons and reading instruction on 16 CDs, plus a reading booklet

Korean is the official language of both North and South Korea. ItÕs also spoken in neighboring Yanbian, China. Some 72 million speak Korean. There are two standard dialects, Seoul (South Korea) and P'yongyang (North Korea). Pimsleur's Korean teaches the Seoul dialect of South Korea.

Can learning another language be as easy as speaking your own? Yes - with Pimsleur it’s that easy. Learn on your own time, at your own pace, and wherever you choose.Korean II, Comprehensive includes 15 hours of spoken language practice and one additional hour of reading instruction, and is designed to be used after completing Level I.

  • In the first 10 lessons, you begin to use the past tense. Structures become more complex and informal speech is introduced. Conversations become fuller, and learners are able to discuss business and social activities, manage shopping situations, and express their interests. As you progress, vocabulary is expanded and fluency increases.
  • The next 10 lessons allow you to further combine and build upon known elements, and produce longer and more complex sentences. You learn to bargain with shopkeepers, deal with business situation, get and give medical information, and discuss the weather.
  • In the final 10 lessons, you’ve doubled your vocabulary and have several hundred structures to draw upon. You’ll gain experience asking for assistance, finding a location that is some distance away, and using relative structures – faster, slower, etc. Sports and leisure activities are explored, as well as shopping, changing money, and future travel plans. By the end of  Level II, you’re speaking at a mid-intermediate level with near-native pronunciation, and you are comfortable meeting most social demands and limited job requirements.

Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30. These lessons, which total about one hour, are designed to give you practice reading Korean, and to provide you with some insight into Korean culture with proverbs, common expressions, and a broad look at things you’ll see when visiting Korea. A Reading Booklet to be used with the audio lessons is also included in PDF format.

    Comments about Korean Phase 2, Units 1-30:

    I had been learning on my own with books but couldn't understand a word when I heard someone speak. So this audio program was really great for me to understand the language when I hear it. And of course I learned many useful expressions. The lessons were just the right length and were very interesting. Also, the interval of repetitions really helped me to remember the material very well. I recommend this program to anyone wanting to learn Korean. I just wish they had a Korean III. I also purchased the English for Korean speakers for my new wife and she's found it very useful too.

      Comments about Korean Phase 2, Units 1-30:

      The keys to learning a second (in my case, a third) language are 1)persistence 2) consistency 3)practice and 4) using multiple learning resources. The Pimsleur Korean II program provides 1-3, and in combination with Jeyseon Lee's Beginner's Korean, making Naver my default search engine and watching Korean dramas at night renders learning Korean a painless proposition.
