Parts of Speech-Korean version

The Parts of Speech (Korean Version) takes a different route from most language workbooks in teaching English as a second language. Instead of starting with simple sentences, this book begins with interjections, single words of phrases that express whole ideas. Each subsequent part of speech is introduced with the goal of communicating fully, even without full sentence structure, using the whole brain and feeling the language rather than stringing it together like a math equation. Ambiguity, humor, and poetry are all possible from day one in this approach to learning English.
