"I have been collecting words (see list below) that Koreans have adopted from other languages. It is sort of a mini-vocabulary within their own language that almost all Koreans use and is a first step into English. Typically we read this list aloud in a first class, with my commentary, and everybody feels comfortable with the fact that they already know so many English words."
