Pocket Korean Dictionary: Korean-English English-Korean based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The only problem I had with this book is the Korean to English section. It contains both Hangul (South Korean script) and transiltered roman alphabet, both togethor with it's meaning in English. Problem is it arranged according to the alphabetical order of the roman alphabet, not the Hangul script. Most Korean's are more familar with Hangul than the roman alphabet version of their lanuage. So when you hand them this book and ask them to find the words they are trying to communicate with you, they can not find it because it is not arranged to the Hangul order.
I actually own the paperback version of this dictionary. It is very helpful if you are listening to korean and are not familiar with hangul yet. I would recommend not becoming too attatched to this book though if you are really trying to learn the language. Otherwise, it is a great tool for brief trips to Korea!
