Integrated Korean Intermediate 1, Second Edition

This is a thoroughly revised edition of Integrated Korean: Intermediate 1, the third volume of the best-selling series developed collaboratively by leading classroom teachers and linguists of Korean. All series’ volumes have been developed in accordance with performance-based principles and methodology—contextualization, learner-centeredness, use of authentic materials, usage-orientedness, balance between skill getting and skill using, and integration of speaking, listening, reading, writing, and culture. Grammar points are systematically introduced in simple but adequate explanations and abundant examples and exercises.

Each situation/topic-based lesson of the main texts consists of model dialogues, narration, new words and expressions, vocabulary notes, culture, grammar, usage, and English translation of dialogues. In response to comments from hundreds of students and instructors of the first edition, this new edition features a more attractive two-color design with all new photos and drawings and an additional lesson and vocabulary exercises. Lessons are now organized into two main sections, each containing a conversational text (with its own vocabulary list) and a reading passage. The accompanying workbook, newly written, provides students with extensive skill-using activities based on the skills learned in the main text.

The second edition of Integrated Korean Intermediate 1, textbook and workbook, are now available for order (as of March 19, 2012). Click the links below for additional information.

    • TD says:

      Will the intermediate 2 second edition come out in the next month or two? Because it would be ideal to have that for next semester.

      • kleartextbook says:

        It’s already available for purchase via UH Press.

        “shortage in manpower to provide the necessary service”. Just what on earth do you need to complicate this for? Create a PDF and send out. Or just simply: put the answer key into the book! I’m not going to order a book and pay 50USD for textbook+workbook where I cannot check whether my answers are good or not!

        • kleartextbook says:

          We didn’t make the answer keys open to the public since many schools use our workbook and, because it constitutes a large percentage of their grade, instructors have requested to not make them publicly available.

          We apologize for the inconvenience. Rest assured when the online version of the workbook becomes available soon, you should be able to check your answer right on the spot.

    It seems that replies are not quickly forthcoming on this site.

    Anyway, do you have any provisions for homeschool parents to access the answer keys in order to effectively guide their children? Especially for a parent who is not fluent in korean, but whose children are using korean to meet their foreign language requirement.

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    • kleartextbook says:

      We apologize for the delay.
      We cannot make the answer keys available to public because students taking classes from most of US colleges/university get their grades partially from the workbook assignment.
      However, we are planning to have our own online version so that self-study students can verify their answers from our website.
      We hope we can come up with something next year. At the mean time, please email us at [email protected]
      We might be able to find something for you.

    Why does not contain the vocab list for Intermediate level?

    • kleartextbook says:

      The second edition became available a few months ago. We will update the list soon.
