I received this book 4 months ago and I was very excited because I’m interested in learning Korean. See, my 13-year-old daughter is a huge fan of the boy band BTS, and because of them, she became interested in learning Korean. So my husband enrolled her in a Korean course and weekly we talk about what she’s learned. I’ve also downloaded most of the BTS music and I sing it, but God only knew what I was saying…until now!! I showed my baby girl the book (during a video call). We have grown closer because of a simple book. I want to thank you for sending it to me because right now this is my favorite book. Why? Because throughout the book there are boxes with symbols beside them, which are designed to help me if I can’t understand what’s being said. All I have to do is hand the book to the Korean speaker and encourage them to point to what they are trying to say. Thank you for sending it to me. I appreciate it.
