Fourth volume of Sejong Korean series.
Sejong Korean is a series with communicative insight with exercises to practice reading, listening, writing and speaking comprehension. The 8 volumes of this series were revised in 2019 but they have the same syllabus, the carefully made layout and the edition printed in color.

I used this series in 2 different korean courses (from Book 1 to book 4) and to be honest we never hit it off. I like textbooks with many exercises but I find this series quite short on exercises. Grammar explanations are beyond simplistic. You really need a ´Grammar In Use´ or ´Get it Korean Grammar´ book along with this book to really learn the grammar structure as this one doesn't do well the job and only shows a too simplistic grammar point.
Some people say it is more simple and basic than other korean textbooks (I just got the equivalent Ewha book and Sejong looks indeed more basic).
This is an A2 book level I guess? there is a workbook somewhere in the sejong website for free (that I never managed to find, but teachers kindly provided it to me)
I don't recommend this book for self learners.
