    Intermediate Modern Korean: An Interactive Approach presents the intermediate level of the Korean language to students in a highly interactive manner. Students learn how to competently communicate in Korean according to specific contexts, functions, and speakers' roles with emphasis on meaningful information exchange. Each lesson integrates listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills to encourage acquisition and provide students with a holistic understanding of the language.

    The book consists of 16 comprehensive lessons. The lessons begin with warmup exercises, followed by texts that introduce vocabulary, grammar elements, and conversational expressions. Students learn 30-40 new words per lesson and are provided with word grouping, collocation, definition matching, and conversation activities to reinforce correct word usage. Students receive numerous opportunities to practice grammar, hone listening and speaking skills, and read materials from authentic Korean sources. They are introduced to unique expressions and cultural contexts to help them grasp the language spoken natively by educated individuals in the metropolitan area of Seoul.

    Designed to continue the valuable learnings set forth in Beginning Modern Korean: An Interactive Approach, Intermediate Modern Korean is an ideal resource for intermediate Korean language courses.
