안녕하세요 !


I love reading so so so so much, and I really want to read "Please Look After Mom" because I saw it's available on Amazon... but I've already purchased my share of books this month, so I'll have to wait :disappointed:

I think this series was very well constructed. I like the fact that the teachers went over each word in the vocab list and also the example sentences. I also like the idea of the little quiz at the end of each lesson. I use it as a dictation test (It helps me with my spellings! :grin: ).

Yay! Another series finished! I feel so excited when that happens you know?


Thanks a LOT for the wonderful lessons!


감사합니다 !
