This book was the best resource I used when I was first learning Korean, and it was the first book that made me feel like I made advancements in learning Korean.
What I like most about this book compared to other Korean learning resources, is that they teach new verbs with detailed explanations on how each verb is used. The book has many sample sentences with the vocabulary they teach you, so it helps keep the words in long term memory.
They explain grammar points in a detailed, yet easy to understand way, and there are plenty of sample sentences to help reinforce the new grammar.
At the end of each lesson, they have a workbook area to practice what the lesson taught you. My favorite part of the workbook area is the reading comprehension part, where you read a passage in Korean and the book asks you questions in Korean.
The only bad thing about this book is that the book only teaches you about 500 words, but the grammar taught in the book can be used in many situations.
I recommend that you check out their website, where they have the audio and a PDF copy of this book for free. I originally started with the free PDF version, but bought the book because I wanted to write inside the book. It's been a great resource for my Korean.
I actually bought all 3 volumes because I liked this one a lot.
If this book also came with a CD/downloadable program, it would really help reinforce everything; maybe a software or an app that incorporates all the material in a game-type fashion. When it comes to learning a new language, being interactive is the best way to go!
Overall, great job!
