The Routledge Intermediate Korean Reader is a comprehensive reader designed to provide varied, stimulating and up-to-date reading material for learners of Korean at the intermediate level. The Korean Reader provides a bridge between basic literacy skills and the ability to read full novels and newspapers in Korean. It consists of eighteen readings, graded on the basis of complexity of vocabulary, grammar and syntax. These readings present a range of different text types representative of modern Korean literary and popular writing which will inspire learners to continue reading independently in Korean.

Key features include: * extracts of modern literature and newspaper/magazine articles * vocabulary lists for quick reference * short grammar explanations of any complicated structures * comprehension and discussion questions * full answer key at the back. Suitable for both class use and independent study, The Routledge Intermediate Korean Reader is an essential tool for facilitating vocabulary learning and increasing reading proficiency. The Reader is ideal for learners at the intermediate-mid or intermediate high who are aiming to achieve advanced proficiency according to the ACTFL proficiency guidelines. In terms of the Common European Framework this equates to a progression from A2 through to B1/B2.
