Initiation à l'étude de la langue coréenne

Ppallippalli - which means « quick! quick! » - is an introdoctury guide to the Korean language resulting from a reflection and from an experiment of several years with the students of Korean at INALCO. By offering a panorama of the Korean language through a progressive teaching, this book invites the French-speaking learner in an immersion at the same time linguistic and cultural, two inseparable dimensions of any foreign language learning .
