I love this book. I have tried to learn Korean for a couple of years and had my basic vocabulary down but it wasn't until this book that I really understood how to make a sentence. I needed to see the verb conjugation in detail to understand how to use the different levels of formality and tenses. I have used these books for other European languages and was delighted to find the Korean version. It took me from being able to say "hello"and "thank you" to making simple sentences through understanding, rather than memorization, which is what other books do.
