The Japanese journal for Korean language learners, “hana” vol. 1, that I ordered on Neowing has arrived today. It’s actually in book size, not magazine size, if you know what I mean. Black and white, looks more like a serious textbook than magazine. One CD included (about one hour, Korean only).
I think it’s more for advanced learners than intermediate learners because learning material in it is “real” stuff for native speakers (news, radio program, drama, etc.). I read a blog post saying that the audio CD is a little slow because it’s made for learners, but no, I don’t think so. Even some part of the audio which is “slow” and meant for basic level is actually in natural speed.
Just by briefly looking at the pages makes me feel a little overwhelmed (I think I need to be in a study mode to read these, armed with markers and pens) but I hope I’ll be able to finish it before vol. 2 is published in July.
I’ll start reading from the easy part first: articles about learning methods and tips.
It’s the last book I bought for this month. ↴
I also got 3 Korean e-books on Google Play recently.
Oops, I didn’t realize I bought so many books. But it’s totally fine because education is important, right? ←물론 핑계지.
Ira 님 has just told me e-books from Google Play can be downloaded as pdf/epub files : https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/179863?hl=en Awesome! I didn’t know that. Thank you, Ira. ###
