I bought Korean for Dummies in Kuching a long while ago cos there weren't anything else that came in the form of audio lessons which would have been more effective. So I didn't really have a choice & now it's sitting there. I've since realised, & have made a conviction that the only real way to learn a new language fast would be through audio CDs. You can pop them in the car & practice it in the traffic jams. So I knew that the book wouldn't do.
So when I was over in KL, I bought this Pimsleur's audio CD set which came with 8 lessons. I've finished it since, but only to realise that I can only understand conversations that deal with hello, I'm from the US/Korea. Can/cannot speak Korean. Going to have a drink/lunch at my place/your place.
It felt more like the perfect lessons for a single guy trying to pick up a Korean chick. Now thinking back, it felt wrong. It really wasn't the right lessons for a married man.
