Korean Basic Course.
Defense Language Inst., Washington, DC.
These 11 volumes of the Korean Basic Course comprise 112 lesson units designed to train native English language speakers to Level 3 proficiency in comprehension and speaking and Level 2 proficiency in reading and writing Korean. (Level 5 on this scale is native-speaker level.) Intended for classroom use in the Defense Language Institute intensive language programs, the approach is oral-aural, providing for practice by means of dialogs, grammatical pattern drills, and recombination drills. Materials are presented first in English, followed by literal translations and cartoon cues, and then in Korean script. The McCune-Reischauer romanization system and the Hangul script used in the texts are formally introduced in Volume II; Hanja (Chinese) characters are introduced in Volume III. A cumulative Hanja vocabulary listing for Volumes III-XI appears in Volume XI. Although these texts have been prepared primarily for military personnel, the general and cultural contexts may be of interest to non-military students as well. (AMM)
