Description

This book is for intermediate Korean language students. This textbook covers practical Korean language use in everyday contexts to help students improve their language abilities. Each unit is divided into sections for "listening and speaking", "speaking" and "reading and speaking" and designed to teach communicative functions in various contexts. The sections are designed to present grammar, vocabulary, phrases, pronunciation and culture in context. Class work on various topics gives students the opportunity to arrange their thoughts. The CD contains 16 listening exercises, eight activities based on various aspects of clear pronunciation, eight dialogues from the speaking section of each unit, audio of the seven readings and a Korean song.

Developed by professionals at the Sogang Korean Language Education Center, Sogang Korean provides a comprehensive approach to Korean communication and contemporary culture. The four language skills--speaking, listening, reading, and writing--are connected by a common learning objective in each lesson, enabling learners to practice, extend, and apply their knowledge and skills.

The Sogang Korean 4A Student Book is designed to be used after completion of Level 3B. Authentic dialogues help students grasp important Korean grammar structures and vocabulary, while appealing illustrations and frequent comprehension checks support their understanding. In each lesson, students are encouraged to reinforce what they have learned through a variety of both controlled and free coversation activities. 

To facilitate independent study, the Student Book is accompanied by a separate grammar booklet with English explanations, scripts for each CD, and a glossary of terms. The CD contains 16 listening exercises, pronunciation exercises, dialogues, recordings of the lesson readings, and a song from the well-known Korean singer Kim Kwang-Seok. The 4A Workbook provides exercises for additional review and practice. The 4A Student Book and corresponding Workbook are intended to cover 75-100 hours of instruction.
