e4k!

e4k—English for Koreans— is a team of highly qualified native English speakers and Koreans. Each of our partners has a Masters degree and we all have extensive experience in the field of English education. e4k aims to revolutionize the way English is taught and studied in Korea. Our long-term goal is to help every English student in Korea speak and write English well, so that they can communicate well with English speakers from other countries. If you can read Korean, then please check out our online English community.

If you'd like to know more about e4k's publications, our first three are described below.

More books are coming soon!

TOEIC 900점 맞고싶죠!
TOEIC 900점 맞고싶죠! (1996)
Before he and Max Becker-Pos created e4k, Duke Moon wrote this book, TOEIC 900점 맞고싶죠! (roughly translated as You want to get a 900 on the TOEIC!) His first publication, it enjoyed a fair degree of success on the market. A dedicated TOEIC enthusiast, Duke has taken the TOEIC test many times throughout his career, and he continues to stay on top of the material by writing the exam regularly. In this book, Duke provides the reader with a wealth of information and strategies for success on the TOEIC exam. Most graciously, Duke has made the entire contents of the book available online, completely free of charge. What an opportunity!
English Talk Box
English Talk Box (2002)
English Talk Box was e4k's first book, a true team effort. Mark Plaice wrote the book, Duke Moon translated it into Korean, and Max Becker-Pos did the editing. Our other main contributor, Marwan Alkarout, wrote 10 of the dialogs. Intended for advanced learners, ETB features very natural, idiomatic dialogs, as well as "Culture Notes" briefing Koreans on the differences between Korean and Western culture.
Chotal
"Chotal" (2003)
e4k's second book, nicknamed "Chotal". Max Becker-Pos wrote the English part and Han Jin, a partner at Neung-Yule, wrote the Korean portion. Marwan Alkarout helped Max edit the English content. This is a book for basic English speakers, but it also contains many expressions and explanations on usage useful for both intermediate and advanced learners. Its focus is colloquial English, and it features simple and common expressions, both in slang and standard English. Notes on culture and language usage are made throughout the book.
