ABSTRACT

Usually ‘i/ka’ is used as a subject marker and ‘eun/neun’ is used as a topic marker in Korean language. These two particles are learned in the early stages of Korean language education, however, Korean leaners experience difficulties in understanding and distinguishing the meanings and use of them even after their proficiency is reached to a higher level. This paper supposes the learners‘ difficulties are in large part resulted from lack of systematic learning of ‘i/ka’ and ‘eun/neun’, especially the meanings and contexts of them. Thus, this study sought to suggest methods of presenting ‘i/ka’ and ‘eun/neun’ in the Korean language textbooks for beginners level. To this end, the meanings and contexts where ‘i/ka’ and ‘eun/neun’ are used were discussed by examining previous studies, and Korean language textbooks were also analysed to identify problems of presentation methods of ‘i/ka’ and ‘eun/neun’. Contents of explanation, presentation methods, example sentences, and practices of these two particles which should be presented in the textbook were suggested based on the analysis result of the previous studies and Korean language textbooks.
