Many Korean learners say that the Korean language is difficult to learn. It is because unlike English, there are many complex endings and particles in the Korean language. For this reason, the existing Korean textbooks for foreigners have mainly covered a large number of "Grammars," which may not be used often in real conversation. The way you "have been learning" Korean : Lengthy & Boring, Impractical, Grammar & Text-based The way you "will learn" Korean with this book : Simple & Easy, Practical, Conversational-based Many students have often asked us if there is a book which specifically focuses on real conversational grammar because they put a lot of effort into learning Korean, but they still can\'t even speak a word. The problem was not them, but learning materials and methods because learning a language is not about memorizing a large number of grammars. It is about how to use them in real conversation. We genuinely hope that through this book, many Korean learners who have difficulty learning Korean can speak Korean with confidence.

America gets more diverse than ever before, and it is our responsibility to respect this diversity before us. Although many people claim that diversity matters, there are so many marginalized people who have not been heard yet. Korean-speaking young people are one of them. They have been marginalized not only by the main culture but also by their own community. This study illuminates this hidden population and their stories as emerging adults with socially, emotionally, and spiritually unstable status. With a practical theology approach, this study provides not only about who are the Korean-speaking young adults but also what is the current praxis and how the immigrant community can have different imaginations about their future with these young people. Including data gathered survey and in-depth interviews, Ignored is the first comprehensive study that addresses Korean-speaking young people. By sharing unheard stories, this book invites us to understand our diverse community. Furthermore, this book brings new imagination of listening others who have been ignored.
This collection critically reflects on the state-of-the-art research on Korean-as-a-heritage-language (KHL) teaching and learning, centering KHL as an object of empirical inquiry by offering multiple perspectives on its practices and directions for further research. The volume expands prevailing notions of transnationalism and translanguaging by providing insights into the ways contemporary Korean immigrant and transnational families and individuals maintain their heritage language to participate in literary practices across borders. Experts from across the globe explore heritage language and literacy practices in Korean immigrant communities in varied geographic and educational contexts. In showcasing a myriad of perspectives across KHL research, the collection addresses such key questions as how heritage language learners’ literacy practices impact their identities, how their families support KHL development at home, and what challenges and opportunities stakeholders need to consider in KHL education and in turn, heritage language education, more broadly. This book will be of interest to families, teachers, scholars, and language program administrators in Korean language education, heritage language education, applied linguistics, and bilingual education.
