Korean Children Novels from TwoChois

Received a package of Korean children storybooks from online bookstore www.twochois.com today!! Nothing makes me happier than coming home to new books. Had a tiring week, so these books cheered me up a bit!

If you remember, previously I have received two other books from them and the first review will be out this weekend or early next week. The 경영 한국어 book should be a good buy for those around a TOPIK 4 level. More on that next post.

As usual, twoChoi’s service is impeccable – nicely wrapped books, sweet of them include a free notebook and a perosnalized note! (:

These novels look exceedingly good for every Korean learner. Seriously, I’m usually not that lavish with praise, but these are awesome.

EACH BOOK HAS AN AUDIO CD. HOW COOL IS THAT.

Suitable for all levels – since it’s useful in different ways to learners of different levels.

To find out a bit more, watch this video!

I need to read them again before I can write the review, but I promise it will be out by next Wednesday. Cos I’m excited to get started on them anyway lol.

For those who can’t wait to get their hands on this series, you can search for the books here.

There are 20 books in total in this 전래동화 series, you can buy them individually or in sets of 5.

For those new to Korean Traditional Folktales / Fairytales, here are a few you can start with: 흥부와 놀부, 팥죽 할머니와 호랑이, 선녀와 나무꾼  😀

    I find these books quite expensive — US$7 each. Given that it’s probably just a 10 min read and all the money goes to color printing, do you think they are worth the price? How would you compare these separate ones with “Learn Korean through traditional fables”, the one in your previous order?

    And I’ve also checked out some of the books on twochois and found their equivalents on G-market. They are generally cheaper on G-market, and I can use discount coupons and combined shipping there. How would you compare their services? And if you don’t mind sharing, what actually did they write on that personal note? lol

    Thanks:)

      Nope, like I said, children books are actually difficult for foreign language learners so you can’t judge them by length. The audio itself is 9mins, but are you going to just listen to it once while scanning through the book and be done with it? It may be something that you do if you go to the bookstore and pick up an English children book but it will definitely take you longer to read as a child and even longer to read as a foreign language learner. I’m an advanced learner (TOPIK 6, learnt korean for 6 years), but I spent like 40 mins on the book (: It’s an easy read for me but I still find myself checking up 17 words in that short little book!

      I haven’t look at the previous book yet, will look at it in the coming two weeks and do the review!

      I love twoChois’s service. You can really see the care they put into packaging and the extra notebook / magazine that they throw in for free really makes me happy (: TwoChois allows both EMS / airmail for shipping, so it can be cheaper if you are willing to wait a bit more and if you live far from Korea (:

    how much/bad is the shipping? i would imagine korea to usa would be even more than the amount for korea to singapore,

    I’ve never ordered from another country.
