I absolutely love this!! Basically it's not a "pocket size" as it's about the size of a regular Roald Dahl Book but the gloss finish on it is just what I expected from this. Hard to believe I got it for under £5!! :D

Right, now for the details...

It has all your numbers, all your days of the week, time telling etc. It has Hangul, Romanisation and English which is great because you can learn EXACTLY how to pronounce it. Not only that, it has your Korean alphabet and even a grammar and sentence structure in the middle.

I think out of my 4 years on Amazon, this has been the BEST and most USEFUL purchase ever (I buy some crap lol)

Ideal for anyone who wants to learn Korean or Hangul! It's such an easy language as they read left to right rather than right to left (Chinese) and along with the grammar it beats Rosetta Stone by miles!!

100% would buy more stuff to learn and I'm saving up to go to Seoul next year and guess what Amazonites??? I'm taking THIS PRODUCT with me haha!! :D

This dictionary is a great addition for any learner of Korean. I can only speak for myself as a beginner, but I love it. I did a lot of research before purchasing it, and after having a look through it, decided this was the best buy. Some statistics that I couldn't find anywhere and asked Collins directly about was the amount of words etc. - 14,000 headwords, 25,000 references and 26,000 translations.

Reasons to buy the dictionary:

1. If your like me, you would want the words written in hangul rather than romanised, this was the first benefit. One thing I will point out though, is that the Korean-English section is in the order of the hangul alphabet - this is useful to me as I really want to learn the order of the hangul alphabet.

2. At the beginning it has a section for pronunciation for if you're new to the language or have no knowledge of the sounds etc. It also has the numbers (native and sino), the days of the week and the months of the year.

3. It has a very helpful grammar section in the middle of the book, which includes info about the sentence structure/word order, particles, honorifics and other stuff.

4. It's only £5.99 on Amazon! (I paid £7.99 for it in Waterstones) - great dictionary for a price you can't beat! Happy learning!

Got this for a friend who loves Kpop so I figured why not buy a dictionary so she can translate the songs to English, and the dictionary is just as good as I expected, there's two parts, Korean-English and English-Korean, and also (I think) there's pronunciation of the Korean words, but I could be totally wrong I don't know because I don't speak a word of Korean lol. Nevertheless, I'm very happy with the dictionary!

A good aid to memory of simple Korean translation of English words, but has certain drawbacks, eg 'god' is given as 'sin' (shin), with no mention of 'hananim' (God). 'hana' in turn is given as 'single', not mentioning 'one' (Korean native numerals).

Huge JOKE 27 Aug 2012
By Océane - Published on Amazon.com
I have learnt the basic of korean. So, I wanted to add words to my vocabulary, translate things and so on.

But what a surprise ! i can go on and on looking for a word that i found on a korean website, or song or else... In 70% I can't find it ! What is that, for a dictionary ?

Seriously, DON T command this. Even the dictionary on google is better- believe me.
