Workbooks

In addition to our lessons, we also offer supplemental Workbooks – where you can practice your Korean doing interesting and effective exercises relevant to what you learned in our Lessons. These workbooks are designed to be a supplement, to be used after reading individual lessons to help you practice and grasp what we teach. We have had a lot of feedback from our readers and they have all been asking us to add this to our list of things that we offer on this website.

Although all of our lessons on our website are free, we have decided that we want to sell these workbooks to our readers for $5 each. All of the Workbooks are PDF files that I personally e-mail to you.

If you live in Korea, you could also send us the funds directly. E-mail us at howtostudykorean@gmail.com for more information.

We currently offer Workbooks for Lessons in Unit 0, Unit 1, Unit 2, Unit 3, Unit 4 and Unit 5
