Sun Hyunwoo is awesome. He was one of the guest speakers for our orientation back in August.
Not Recommended:Rosetta Stone: I learned colors, shapes, and to say things like, ďThe boy is jumping.Ē This is after spending roughly 60 hours on it. Not worth the money in my opinion. Also, the lessons tend to run around an hour, and itís hard for me to focus on them past the 30-45 minute mark.
I've used Survival Korean Beginners, and I'm currently using Survival Korean Vocabulary. Honestly, they are a bit dry and a waste of money in my opinion. Unless your the kind of person that enjoys memorizing words everyday. Then go for it, but I'd recommend getting someone to tutor you with a workbook. I've found that to be the most effective way to retain korean words and grammar. You can use any korean workbooks that korean elementary children use. Obviously, you'd need someone that can read korean, if you decide to use those books. Also, there is a workbook call Fast & Fun Korean which is pretty good, and you really wouldn't need a korean tutor with that book.
