Why I love it

This book is a welcome addition to the growing number of Korean textbooks in the market. According to the author, this book is for students who have completed at least 1 year of an intensive Korean course or equivalent. It does not explain grammar points in details and hence should be used only as a supplementary resource.
The stories are rewritten in simpler sentences, but still engaging and challenging enough for the beginners. For those who have a stronger grasp of the language, it can still serve as an interesting read and pick up some extra vocabulary. ^^
The author has kindly made available the first 16 pages in pdf format and it includes the first story. Check it out HERE.
