The most enjoyable way to learn about an unfamiliar culture is through its stories—especially when they're told in two languages! Korean Stories for Language Learners introduces 42 traditional Korean folktales with bilingual Korean and English versions, presented on facing pages, together with detailed notes and exercises aimed at beginning learners of the language. The book can be used as a reader in first- and second-year Korean language courses or by anyone who wishes to learn about Korean folktales and traditional Korean culture. This elegantly illustrated volume is designed to help language learners expand their vocabulary and to develop a basic familiarity with Korean culture. The stories gradually increase in length and complexity throughout the book as the reader improves their vocabulary and understanding of the language. After the first few stories, the reader is asked to use the vocabulary in speaking and writing exercises. By reading these classic stories, they also are given a window into Korean culture and learn to appreciate the uniqueness of the country—which provides greater motivation to continue learning the difficult language. Cultural notes and discussion questions further reinforce one's understanding of the stories, and bolster one's language skills. Korean-English and English-Korean glossaries are included as well as an overview of the Korean Hangeul script. Audio recordings by native speakers help readers improve their pronunciation and inflection.

The teaching of English in the United Arab Emirates is based upon the communicative approach and aims to enable EFL students to employ language skills for communication purposes, as appropriate. Personal experience and the author’s colleagues’ observations, however, reveal that a number of EFL university students fail to achieve adequate communicative competence, which, in turn, does not qualify them to exploit the foreign language of English as required by their curricula as well as by today’s world. Central to university education in the United Arab Emirates is critical thinking. It seems reasonable, then, to assume that EFL university students are well-equipped to tackle a reading text and to handle a writing task, demonstrating through such activities an adequate repertoire of critical thinking skills. Personal experience and the author’s colleagues’ observations, however, indicate that this does not apply to a number of EFL university students studying in the country. Seeking an effective remedy, the author argues that utilising literature in the EFL classroom would be beneficial in terms of many essential aspects. Based on a three-year research project conducted at a private university in Dubai involving a number of EFL students, the book concludes with some suggestions with regards to what criteria to adopt when utilising literary texts. The current book, as such, is expected to be of use and interest to: applied linguists (as the study proposes an approach to integrating the teaching of language, literature, communication and critical thinking, with the ultimate goal of promoting communicative competence and enhancing critical thinking on the part of EFL learners); curricula designers (since the study introduces a course for the enhancement of communicative competence and critical thinking); and EFL instructors (because the study offers instructional material which can be adopted or adapted when teaching EFL university students).

Korean Honorifics and Politeness in Second Language Learning

This book investigates the ways that advanced speakers of Korean as a second language perceive, use and learn the complexities of the Korean honorifics system. Despite their advanced proficiency in Korean, the study shows that the honorifics use of these speakers diverges in crucial ways from native speaker norms. It is argued that, rather than reflecting the language competence of these speakers as such, this usage is linked to questions of the identity of “language learners” and “foreigners” in Korean society. In addition, it shows the influence of conflicting ideologies regarding the “meaning” of “politeness”. This argument is backed up by rich data collected through mixed methods (discourse completion tests, role-plays, natural interactions, introspective interviews), allowing for a detailed picture of how the honorifics use of second language speakers emerges in context. The book concludes by discussing the implications of the study for politeness research, interlanguage pragmatics and language pedagogy.
