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.
