"What makes New Generation Korean 1 outstanding is that it will serve both teachers and students well. Each conversation is presented with new vocabulary and a concise description of grammar points and practices with a clear layout for easy navigation. Students will benefit from quick access to target grammar for self-study while there is still room for further teacher instruction. The four skill practices at the end of each chapter are manageable in terms of length and difficulty for class or self-study exercises. The vocabulary lists, conjugation table, and answer keys at the end of the book will serve as useful resources for more self-study."Soyoung Kang, Carleton University
