Description

A handy Korean phrasebook and guide to the Korean language, Survival Korean contains basic vocabulary necessary for getting around Korea.

This book contains all the necessary words and phrases for speaking Korean in any setting. Perfect for students, tourists, or business people learning Korean or traveling to Korea, it also contains a beginner guide to the Korean language, allowing for a deeper understanding of Korean than a typical Korean phrasebook or Korean dictionary.

The book is broken into four primary sections: Common Korean Expressions and Key Words, Essential Korean Communication Tools, Korean Travel Vocabulary and Useful Korean Expressions, and Korean Pronunciation Guides for Key Korean Names and Signs. All Korean words and phrases are written in Romanized form as well phonetically, making pronouncing Korean a breeze. For example, the word for "Hello," Yoboseyo is also written as Yoe-boh-say-yoh. Authentic Korean script (Hangul) is also included so that in the case of difficulties the book can be shown to a native Korean-speaker.

Key features of Survival Korean include:

Hundreds of useful Korean words and expressions.
Up-to-date internet, mobile, and social media terms
An English-Korean index with more than 1,000 additional words and their pronunciation for quick reference.
Romanized forms, phonetic spellings, and Korean script (Hangul) for all words and phrases.
A concise background and history of the Korean language.
An introduction to the Korean Alphabet.
A pronunciation guide for Korean syllables.

Review quote

"The travel vocabulary was especially helpful. Some of the smaller towns we explored did not have a lot of English speakers, and so we had to rely on my Korean skills to navigate the buses, trains, and taxis. And these books are small, so they fit easily into a purse or backpack without weighing you down." - These Temporary Tents blog
