The most enjoyable way to learn about an unfamiliar culture is through its stories; especially when they're told in two languages! Korean Stories for Language Learners introduces 42 traditional Korean folktales through bilingual Korean and English texts presented on facing pages. This elegantly illustrated volume is designed to help language learners expand their vocabulary and to develop a basic familiarity with Korean culture. Accompanied by detailed cultural notes, vocabulary lists, and grammar points, the stories gradually increase in length and complexity as readers improve their understanding of the language. After the first few stories, readers are asked to use the vocabulary in speaking and writing exercises. By reading these classic stories, westerners are also given a window into Korean culture and learn to appreciate the uniqueness of the country. The book can be used as a reader in first and second-year Korean language courses or by anyone who wishes to learn about Korean folktales and traditional Korean culture. A Korean-English glossary, an overview of the Korean Hangeul script, and free native-speaker audio recordings to aid pronunciation round out this delightful learning package.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...a great bilingual reader for beginners to mid-intermediate learners [...] For those without a CD player, Tuttle also offers downloadable audio files from their website. This is so important, because most laptops don't come with the CD drive anymore. Always love the little touches like this-shows that the author / publishing house understands the readers' needs." -Hangukdrama & Korean blog
"...comes with an MP3 collection that is an absolute joy to listen to. The reader speaks in a very clear voice and articulates words clearly-even on the higher-level stories." - Mezzofanti Guild
"I'd recommend [this book] to anyone interested in learning more about the Korean culture while still practicing some Korean." -Natalia Garza
