Korean Picture Dictionary was designed for easy use by new foreign
learners of Korean. It covers a total of approximately 3,800 words
chosen from the 50,000 vocabulary words found on the National Academy of
the Korean Language's (NAKL) list of most frequently used words in
Korean and the Yonsei Korean Dictionary, as well as from textbooks used
in teaching Korean as a foreign language at the university level. This
book is organized into approximately thirteen subject areas, each of
which has four or five subsections. Each section includes phrases and
expressions from everyday Korean that help you put words in context.
Vocabulary was chosen for each subject for being words that short-term
residents frequently come into contact with. The focus was actual use in
everyday life, and what has been included is essential daily vocabulary.
The illustrations in each scene are easy for persons with no prior
knowledge of Korean or Korean culture to understand. Another advantage
of this dictionary is that it has English, Chinese, and Japanese
definitions as well, translated by Korean language experts from the
areas those languages are spoken.
