Learning to read in another can be tedious if the materials are too difficult, the topics are not interesting, or it feels overwhelming.
At Lang-Wich, we are creating easy-to-read stories – also known as graded readers – to help elementary and pre-intermediate Korean language learners feel comfortable reading at their pace with fun short novels based on English classic stories.
Inspired by Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey, we follow Jo Seo-ha’s journey when the reality of moving to Seoul for university starts to hit home – she does not like change.
Though joined by friends from her hometown, Seo-ha is faced with a new challenge; what happens when new friends enter into the circle?
Follow Seo-ha and her friends in the new Korean graded reader, Spring Again, and Summer.

Understanding how a word is used in context helps with remembering how to use it correctly. Just like reading in your native language where you gain more words, the same concept can be applied to a foreign language. Learning in context starts to expand your vocabulary bank which helps build fluency in Korean.
Completing a book in any language gives the sense of accomplishment and it is the same in language learning.
Graded readers use language that learners are familiar with and so understanding the story without having to reach for a dictionary gives the reader a confidence boost in knowing that their language learning can be expanded beyond the textbook
Reading materials in Korean for elementary and pre-intermediate levels are hard to find. Our easy-to read stories helps practise what has been learned from textbooks and applied to help readers gain independence reading in Korean.
