Each Lesson begins with an introductory illustration, warm-up activities, and learning objectives.
Each Lesson includes two sets of conversations in real- life settings. Each conversation provides a variety of key expressions, vocabulary, and grammar points that are necessary to communicate successfully in Korean. The accompanied practice section allows learners to practice exchanging experiences and ideas. Audio files are available to help learners practice listening, speaking, and pronunciation.

Reading and Writing (읽기 쓰기)
Each Lesson contains two sets of reading and writing sections.

Korean Culture (한국문화)
