New KIIP books
By joining Korea Immigration and Integration Program (KIIP), you can learn Korean for FREE and get 'bonus points' when applying for permanent residence (VISA F5) or waive 'naturalization interview' when applying for Korean citizenship.

When you join the program, you must have the KIIP books to study. The new KIIP books were released in Dec 2020 and many peoples are still searching where to buy the books. However, to find and buy the KIIP books are not easy for foreigners who have limited Korean proficiency. Even, people with good Korean proficiency may have to spend much time to find the books. Therefore, this post is made to help you find and buy the books like eating a piece of cake. 

All KIIP textbooks and workbooks (including level 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and practice test books (pre-test: 사전평가, mid-term test: 중간평가, comprehensive test: 종합평가) will be provided from 2 major online bookstores: Coupang and Gmarket.

  1. Thank you for this concise guide. I ordered for KIIP Level 2 & Level 3 books on GMarket. I was seriously disappointed when I received it. So, I left a review for them here:

    Please how can I get the mp3 files for the listening practices?

    Thank you once again.

    1. Just scan the QR code on the front cover of each book to get the mp3 for listening.

  2. Are the new books available in the bookstores?

  3. Could you inform me, how can I get pdf files? Thanks

    1. Please refer to this post to get pdf files:
