An Excellent Resource
One phrase describes it all... an indispensable resource for learning Korean. With its affordable price, two colored layout, and readable fonts in addition to the large number of entries, this dictionary is a must-have for any enthusiastic Korean language learner. Even the romanization of words that some readers find to be a problem helps in the pronunciation of Korean words.

Far from easy to use but a decent selection
By Sean M. Chandler
First off, there is nothing concise about this dictionary. It's as large as any other bilingual dictionary I've ever purchased. It does have a decent selection of vocabulary, although I was told by Koreans in Korea that many of the words it used were antiquated or just altogether wrong. Furthermore, I didn't find its pronunciation to be very helpful. However, the point of a dictionary is not to teach the language but to offer words, and this dictionary does an adequate job of that overall.

well worth having
By Philip K. Fong
I'm trying to learn Korean. I have to admit that I was initially frustrated in using the Korean-English section...I wasn't able to look up (find) any of the words of interest. I've been using the Indiana University web site to learn hangul and to acquire some vocabulary. The site is pictorial along with hangul and audio (but no English). In some cases, I couldn't be sure what the picture represented, so looking up the word seemed appropriate. I thought that I could simply use a romanized hangul chart to find the entry in the dictionary. Life is never that simple. But after I got more familiar with the way the dictionary romanizes Korean words,I began to have more success (as well as more satisfaction). The dictionary is attractively put together with a two-color scheme. It also has sections providing guides to pronunciation, grammar,and useful phrases.
