• The amazing Laura Szczembara created online flash cards for terminology and the written exam. . https://quizlet.com/join/pqTmURY7n
  • Click on the topic, then click on “Flash Cards” if you’d like to have the question asked first, then click the turn-over card for the answer on the back. (And ignore their pronunciations. Even though it is an Asian accent the pronunciations I heard so far are not correct.)

  • The Korean spellings have been Romanized for help in pronunciation
