NEW YONSEI KOREAN Listening and Reading 2-2 (English)
1 This book, together with “New Yonsei Korean Language Vocabulary & Grammar 2” and “New Yonsei Korean Language Speaking & Writing 2” is for beginner-level Korean language learners.
2 This book focuses on developing students’ comprehension so that beginner-level Korean language learners can understand what they have heard and read in Korean.
3 This consists of 20 lessons and each lesson is made up of two sections, totaling 40 sections in all. For every two lessons, there is a separate review section, and there are a total of 10 review sections in the book. Each section consists of enough material for a 50-minute class, and the entire book contains 50 sections total. Every review section also contains a segment that introduces Korean culture.
4 Each section of the book consists of a title, learning objectives, and a five-stage process, which includes a “Let’s Prepare” segment, “Let’s Listen” segment, “Let’s Read” segment, “Let’s Repeat” segment, and a “Let’s Organize” segment.
5 Though the title of each lesson in this book is the same as the lesson titles of “New Yonsei Korean Language Vocabulary & Grammar 2,” the title of the section is a sentence from the contents of the section that best represent the lesson. In addition, a QR code is included next to each title so that learners can easily listen to the audio.
6 The learning objectives are expressed in “can understand –” and “can understand ~ -related materials” format to clearly state the comprehension function of the lesson.
7 The “Let’s Prepare” segment is an introduction to the section and is a preparatory stage that helps learners understand the reading and listening contents of the unit. It consists of the study of necessary vocabulary related to the lesson content of the unit. However, it is not just a simple lesson on vocabulary; the vocabulary list consists of words that are actually used in the sentence or within the context of the dialogue so that learners can further their understanding of the words that are being used.
8 “Let’s Listen” is formatted so that learners can improve their real-life communication skills by learning colloquial expressions. The listening passages begin with simple sentences, then conversations, and then formal discourse and ranges from short to long and easy to difficult passages.
9 “Let’s Read” focuses on improving the communication skills of beginner-level Korean language learners in their usage of literary expressions in every-day situations. Students will read various forms of writings (memos, journals, emails, advertisements, invitations, blogs, internet forums, etc.) that they may come across in real-life situations and work on exercises to comprehend the contents of what they have read.
10 “Let’s Repeat” seeks to help learners with their pronunciation. Vocabulary words from the listening or reading passages that include a phoneme change or have a high error rate have been selected per unit and are listed together with other words that follow the same pronunciation rules. The segment also includes sentences that include those specific vocabulary words.
11 “Let’s Organize” is a segment that helps learners confirm and examine what they have learned and aims to strengthen students’ linguistic ability through an integrated learning method that incorporates other learning skills. This segment includes exercises where learners can integrate the contents of the listening and reading lessons with speaking and writing activities.
12 “Review” is comprised of a reading and listening passage where learners can utilize the vocabulary, grammar, and contents of what they have learned in the preceding two lessons. Learners can focus on either listening or reading using what they have learned from each section and use an integrated learning method to connect the other remaining skill through these exercises.
13 “Culture” is contained in the final portion of the Review Section as a cultural text and illustration. Cultural contents that are appropriate for comprehension purposes are selected and included to introduce contents about Korean culture.
14 The Appendix includes an answer key and a list of vocabulary words and a separate booklet includes a translation of the reading passages, as well as listening passage transcripts and translations.
