- It is time for German language teachers in Korea to strive for qualitative development. One of the tasks to achieve this is to develop German grammar books that explain the German language system in a way that suits Korean students. We should develop books on language learning, including German grammar, in accordance with the standard of the Gemeinsamer Europäischer Referenzrahmen. We should adjust the selection and order of the parts of grammar depending on the level of difficulty, frequency and the importance of communication. There should be beginner, intermediate and advanced levels in German grammar. In this paper, I have made suggestions for the beginner level. The task in the future is to implement and systemize these suggestions all the way down to the details of each part of speech. It is not overstatement to say that the strength of Korean students is their understanding of grammar. Instead of considering this strength as weakness, we should find a way to use it effectively in order to facilitate more qualitative German education.
