The Korean Language
Korean, the native language of about 80 million people, is the official language of both North and South Korea. It is also spoken in neighboring Yanbian, China. There are two standard dialects, Seoul (South Korea) and P'yongyang (North Korea). Pimsleur's Korean teaches the Seoul dialect of South Korea.

With some basic grammar knowledge, I find this audio course quite effective. I can communicate now (start conversation). I like dialogues in real speed. I am not sure if it would help me without knowing grammar and some vocabulary. Looking foward to next lessons. It promises fluency after 10 lessons.

Most effective way to learn Korean language.

I really enjoyed learning Korean language using this Pimsleur method. Very effective, very fast to absorb the lessons. I find it a little expensive though.
