In my very brief encounter with this Elementary Korean Workbook, I liked it reasonably well. It comes with a CD and is a companion to the big orange Elementary Korean textbook also reviewed in this directory.
In it I did a bunch of alphabet practice, and thought of first grade, with the attendant workbooks, and tracing paper, and pleasures of trying to write perfectly formed letters over and over and over again. That kind of thing used to give me so much joy, both aesthetic and literary—or a first grader’s version of those things, anyway.
The problem is, once I ceased to be able to follow the accompanying textbook, which happened early on, this companion workbook became useless.
