Language Books Review: Learn to write Korean

Hi everyone!

We’ve got a different sort of post today: a language workbook review!

Basically, a while ago, I received an email from the author of these Korean language learning workbooks “Learn to write Korean,” asking if I was located in the US, and if I’d be interested to receive a free copy each, of their Korean writing workbooks, in exchange for a fair review.

The books are described as:

“A fun two-volume Korean workbook series, tailored specifically to those who want to learn the dialogue they hear so often in Korean dramas. Each volume features 100 of the most common words and phrases from K-dramas, and provides definitions, pronunciation guides, and tracing practice (with ample space) for each word or phrase!”

I thought that sounded like a potentially fun and useful resource for us kdrama fans, and accepted the invitation. However, because I’m not located in the US, Trent (who is!) kindly agreed to receive the workbooks, in exchange for a fair review – and here it is!

Big thanks to Trent, for reviewing these books for us! I hope you guys find this useful! (Links to purchase the books are at the end of the review.)

KFG ❤️

Books put me to sleep too!

It occurs to me that I am really well-positioned to pick up Korean, and I don’t mean in terms of taking lessons in a classroom.

Friends whom I’ve watched kdrama with have consistently pronounced me weird and somewhat freaky because of my ability to do that, which is what got me thinking.

Without thinking about it, I’d kind of assumed that most people would pick up the language similar to the way I pick it up, so when I realized that my friends found it freaky and I gave it some thought, I realized that I really am quite uniquely positioned to pick up Korean.
