GENERATION GAP AND OTHER ESSAYS

GENERATION GAP AND OTHER ESSAYS

$53.99

Generation Gap is a flexible, fascinating, and relevant resource for non-native and heritage students of Korean alike.

As students advance to the intermediate level, they look beyond grammar mechanics and seek intellectual engagement in Korean language and culture. Hye-Sook Wang’s original essays introduce provocative and stimulating topics ranging from college life in Korea and America, Korea-Japan relations, Korea’s gender divide, dating and marriage customs, folk traditions, family systems, and globalization and the “Korean Wave.”

Generation Gap is the perfect supplement to a primary Korean textbook, or an exciting primary textbook for a third- or fourth-year course at the high school or college level. When used as a primary textbook, Generation Gap can be completed over the course of two semesters. Comprised of both task- and content-based language learning material, each of the twenty units starts with background (in Korean and English) and warm-up questions. Comprehension, vocabulary, discussion, and composition exercises follow to help students improve their reading comprehension, practice language skills, and make cultural comparisons in Korean. A vocabulary list accompanies each unit, and a comprehensive vocabulary index and exercise answer keys are included for quick reference.

Generation Gap is the first book to be released in the Cheng & Tsui Readings in Korean Culture Series, which offers supplemental readings for students with different levels of Korean language proficiency.
