Rating:
+5
IfIf You Were Me and Lived in South Korea:
An Introduction to Learning About Other 
Cultures by Carole P. Roman is an
excellent primer on Korean culture.
The book teaches important linguistic and
cultural information pertinent to Korea.
 
Roman begins by explaining that people
have lived in Seoul for over 2000 years.
In addition, this historic capital city 
was built upon the banks of the famous 
Han River.
 
The author provides examples of traditional
Korean names like Minjoon,Jihoo and Minjae
for boys. Soobin, Jiwoo and Yeeun are examples
of names for girls.
 
There is a description of the monetary system
in Korea with the introduction of the won
which is comparable to the dollar bill as a
medium of exchange.
 
Roman discusses typical vocabulary in the
Korean language. For instance, omma means
mother and appa is the word for father.
 
The author introduces readers to the vocabulary
of restaurants. For instance, bulgogi is a
Korean barbecue and kimshee is fermented cabbage.
 
There is a very instructive section on the 
Seol-nal or Korean Lunar New Year. Family
members are depicted in traditional clothing
called hanbok. The traditional food consists
of soup with rice cakes.
 
If You Were Me and Lived in South Korea:
An Introduction to Learning About Other 
Cultures by Carole P. Roman is an
important Korean cultural resource for children and
young people. The book has full color pictures
which depict the Korean language in daily use.
 
The presentation transcends fact memorization
by presenting the language in various
situation contexts. In this way, children and
young adults can master the basics by reference
to the spoken language utilizing a variety of
very practical and intuitive contexts.
