Look up Korean words and you can find both variations and English definitions. The consonants of the Korean alphabet are listed along the side of the book to make it easier to find words.
Please note this book is labeled ‘reference’, and is not available for check-out. However, there is a study area by the East Asian Reference Collection on the 5th floor on Watson.
This is a pronunciation dictionary. Look up any Korean word and you can find the definition in English, as well as many other languages. You can also hear audio of the word being spoken and used in a sentence.
This book is broken down into lessons, which are generally broken down into written conversations. Each conversation is followed by the definition of key vocab words, a review or grammar and culture points, and then various exercises. Answers are provided in the back of the book.
This book provides drills and review for writing, pronunciation, translation, and grammar. If you check this out of the library be sure to ask for both the text and disc, as there is an accompanying audio disk stored separately from the book.
Struggling with a specific grammar point, such as particles or negation? This book provides extra explanation and examples to hop you master difficult grammar points, and is organized so you can find exactly the grammar point you are struggling with.
This is a great resource for students who already know some spoken Korean, but do not know the grammar rules involved. This book is also a great resource for beginning students who want more exposure to the language.
This is the web page where all previous Topik tests that are available to the public are uploaded. Usually this is one test each calendar year. Be sure to download both the test papers/answers folder and the audio file folder for the same test.
