Integrated Korean: Advanced 2, Second Edition
- About the Book
This is a thoroughly revised edition of Integrated Korean: Advanced 2, the eighth volume of the best-selling series developed collaboratively by leading classroom teachers and linguists of Korean. All the series’ volumes 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.
All lessons are content-based and address a wide variety of topics chosen to meet students’ interests and needs. Authentic examples of texts provided include poems, news articles, speeches, and essays. Each content-based lesson consists of objectives, pre-lesson topics, and reading, further reading, and culture sections. Reading sections contain comprehension questions, grammar and usage, and activities; further reading sections are accompanied by their own comprehensive activities. To ensure students’ accurate understanding of the material, English translations of all Korean texts are given at the end of each chapter. Vocabulary for each lesson appears conveniently at the bottom of the page.
Integrated Korean is a project of the Korean Language Education and Research Center (KLEAR) with the support of the Korea Foundation. In addition to course textbooks and workbooks, KLEAR volumes include: Korean Reader for Chinese Characters, Korean Composition, Selected Readings in Korean, Readings in Modern Korean Literature, Korean Language in Culture and Society, and A Resource for Korean Grammar Instruction. A Dictionary of Korean Grammar and Usage is forthcoming.
