I recently ordered some books from abebooks, which I recieved about a week ago and among them was this book.


It’s a dictionary! My first physical Korean dictionary. Although I mostly rely on naver dictionary, I just wanted a dictionary that I could use incase we had a blackout again. My town has a lot of blackouts. We actually just came out of one a few days ago, and to make things worse I have been unable to connect to the internet for the last two weeks. I want to be prepared for next time so I’m not stuck just studying with my textbook. In that time I could also continue where I left off in twilight.
I haven’t used it yet, but it seems like a decent dictionary. My only gripe with it so far is that the korean-english side is organized using romanization. It does, however, use hangeul beside the individual words, so its still usable. I wasn’t expecting too much, since I only paided $3 for it. I’ll definetely review it when I get the chance to actually sit down and use it.
