Author: Mary Shin Kim, Mee-Jeong Park, Joowon Shu
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press (2010)
Binding: Paperback, 224 pages
This workbook accompanies the thoroughly revised edition of Integrated Korean: Beginning 1, the first volume of the best-selling series developed collaboratively by leading classroom teachers and linguists of Korean. All 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. Each situation/topic-based lesson of the main texts consists of model dialogues, narration, new words and expressions, vocabulary notes, culture, grammar, usage, and English translation of dialogues. In response to comments from hundreds of students and instructors of the first edition, this new edition features a more attractive two-color design with all new photos and drawings and an additional lesson and vocabulary exercises. Lessons are now organized into two main sections, each containing a conversational text (with its own vocabulary list) and a reading passage. The accompanying workbook, newly written, provides students with extensive skill-using activities based on the skills learned in the main text.

"Part 1 of Japanese: The Spoken Language teaches modern spoken Japanese through drills and functional exchanges. Each lesson is divided into three sections. The first two sections contain core conversations and their English equivalents (single exchanges between two people), and a “breakdown” of the dialogue with supplementary vocabulary, miscellaneous notes, structural patterns, drills, and application exercises. The last section in the lesson focuses on listening comprehension and review. The textbook also includes an English-Japanese, Japanese-English glossary. The series is entirely romanized. Upon completion of Part 1, students will be able to converse in Japanese at a basic level. "
