What is 'The Anthology'?
During the making of Writing Conversational Korean: Book Two, we asked native Korean speakers 20 different questions and collected over 600 responses. Due to limited space we selected only about 150 of our favourites for the main book.  But we had collected so many other great samples we wanted to include.  

Hence, 'The Anthology' was created: a collection of all the other great writing samples that we wanted to share but unfortunately couldn't fit into 'Writing Conversational Korean: Book Two'. 


In The Anthology: Book Two, you can read over 350 additional writing samples on the following questions:

How should I use 'The Anthology'?
The Anthology: Book Two can be read in addition to Writing Conversational Korean: Book Two or as a stand-alone booklet. We recommend you read the writing samples first in Korean, looking up any grammar and vocabulary you are unfamiliar with as you go, and only refer to the translations when you need to.


Note: The Anthology: Book Two is only available on our website in PDF format.
