KLEAR Textbooks in Korean Language

Developed by the Korean Language Education and Research Center (KLEAR) with the support of the Korea Foundation, the best-selling KLEAR Textbooks in Korean Language series is highly respected by Korean-language instructors and students worldwide.

To accommodate a wide range of student abilities, the series includes more than a dozen titles to date, from the thoroughly revised Integrated Korean: Beginning 1 and 2 (third edition) to the new third-year textbook Integrated Korean: High Intermediate 1 and 2 to the fifth-year Integrated Korean: Advanced 1 and 2. For advanced students, the series offers books on Korean composition and language in culture and society and readers for modern Korean literature and Chinese characters encountered in everyday written Korean.

The core Integrated Korean textbooks have been developed in accordance with performance-based principles and methodology—contextualization, learner-centeredness, use of authentic materials, usage-orientedness, balance between skill getting and skill using, and integration of speaking, listening, reading, writing, and culture. Grammar points are systematically introduced in simple but adequate explanations and abundant examples and exercises. Digital options and audio are available for most Integrated Korean volumes.  These files may be downloaded at https://kleartextbook.com.
