I ordered 2 Korean textbooks at twoChois (www.twochois.com). I
chose registered airmail for delivery (the cheapest one) and it
took 11 days from South Korea to Indonesia. I obsessively
checked the status of delivery every day. And it’s finally here!
Let’s open the box!
twoChois gives great care in packaging. A little too much, I think. Everything is wrapped twice, very neatly. Actually, I wouldn’t mind if they put my books in the box without any plastic and bubble wrapping.
If you look at how much care they give to books, you can be sure that they will take really good care of your goods if you use their other service: Special Order.
Here is the book that I ordered because I think I need to train myself to write in Korean for TOPIK writing section. This book is for intermediate level.
And this is a bilingual book (Korean-Japanese) written by a Japanese and a Korean authors. It’s an essay about interesting things that the Japanese author experienced in her daily life in South Korea, how Korean people and culture different from Japanese and useful Korean expressions. I think it will be an interesting read.
Both books weren’t available at the store so I emailed my request to twoChois. They made the books available at their site really quickly.
Next one is “거침없이 한국어 1”. This book is a free gift to review on my blog.
It’s a Korean textbook for intermediate level learners and above. It’s written entirely in Korean. The lessons are based on a sitcom drama: 거침없이 하이킥. It comes with a DVD (without subtitles). I’ll use it first before I blog a review, and if I like it I might get myself the entire series (거침없이 한국어 2 and 3). It seems promising, though.
I got a First Look magazine with 효연 on the cover as a free gift. I was surprised that they sent me this. The magazine was kind of ruined because it was rolled up… like 김밥. But hey… it’s free!
This red-and-blue pen is also a free gift. There’s a small print which says MADE IN KOREA on it.
And as if all those free gifts weren’t enough, they also sent me this… the best one of all:
B1A4’s latest mini album: 이게 무슨 일이야 (=what on earth is happening?).
When twoChois was having a promotional campaign (maybe now it’s over) in which they sent free K-pop CD to their customers, they offered to send me one (for being a good customer?), so I chose B1A4. Y(^_^)
They also told me I could order any K-pop CD at real price (정가). ###
