Which textbook do learn korean with?
I'm blending KoreanClass with Supermemo, but actually I didn't study from any textbooks. I've used a Rosetta Stone account, but the vocabulary is too far from good: the method works, but they can teach you only basic (very basic) vocabulary.
Thank you very much!
I know someone posted it on here sometime ago, but where can you get the Sogang books from? Can you study from them alone, or do you need something else as well? Not that KC101 hasn't been great, but I'm thinking that I kinda need another source to learn from...
I've used several Korean textbooks, including the ones published by Sogang and SNU along with the books authored by Ross King. I think some of the best books for self-study are published by Pardigmbusters.com. They're only available by mail-order from the publisher and they don't have any CDs although they do have some mp3 files that can be downloaded. They also sell a workbook and you can request an answer key from the publisher too. I think their books are well organized with vocabulary lists at the beginning of each chapter and grammar explanations throughout. I actually find their books more "user friendly" than the other books I mentioned above but the Sogang series does a better job emphasizing conservation--and the new Sogang books have CDs for both the workbooks and textbooks.
