With all the recommendations for twoChois all around me I had to check it out for myself right? What to get though?

I contacted the Dutch Korean embassy a couple weeks back asking for more information on how to sign-up for the TOPIK as a Dutch citizen. This is because we lack a testing site in our own country, which isn’t really that surprising. I was told that I was able to just sign-up in another country so that would be either Germany, France of the UK.

With a proper TOPIK preparation in mind I browsed through some of the other self-study bloggers and found that apparently Sogang 1A & 1B are on par with TOPIK Level 1-2 (+ Sogang 2A to be safe). I believe that at least 1A is below my level and I’m either around the end of 1B or beginning of 2A.

Putting my current level aside I felt it wasn’t bad practice to just start it from the beginning so I orderd Sogang 1A & 1B + Workbooks from twoChois for starters.

The delivery was fast and it was neatly packaged with some free goodies including a cute thank you note. The process of ordering on their site was smooth too. When I initially made a mistake in the payment process this was also quickly resolved without hassle within 24 hours. I appreciate that a lot.

Having gone through the first few chapters of Sogang 1A I might do a book review on it even though I believe there are already more than enough. What I am quite happy about though is that 1A is far too easy for me. Now if only I could find something to increase my vocabulary by a lot. So tempting…

  1. 안녕하세요. Thank you for commenting on my blog. I was advised against using classroom textbook series, and that I’d better use textbooks designed for self-studying to begin my learning. I listened to that advice. But what do you think of the Sogang textbooks?

      I can clearly see why, yes. The Sogang books provide not nearly enough coverage for it to be a sole resource. It’s a guideline for me and not much more actually.

      What I do like a lot are the workbooks with quite an extensive amount of questions + answer keys. It’s an easy way to get tested before writing sentences for correction on the big scary internet! Haha 😉
