Editors work on compilation of books at the Foreign Languages Books Publishing House.
Choe Kyong Sin, headmistress of Kwangbok Primary School, said that the contents of textbooks and reference books have recently been enriched in line with the 12-year compulsory education.
According to her, foreign language textbooks and reference books which were published recently have been compiled in diverse ways to make pupils easily understand normal life, natural phenomena and matters and phenomena, so as to give substantial help to students in their study.
This year alone, hundreds of kinds of textbooks and reference books have been published in the DPRK.
“This year, we have published some 40 kinds of textbooks and reference books and dictionaries in six languages,” said Ri Hyok, director of the Foreign Language Books Publishing House.
As the newly-published foreign language textbooks and reference books include interesting folktales, matters and phenomena, pictures and translations, students can delve into them with curiosity and study by themselves without the explanation of teachers.
The publishing house also brought out dozens of kinds of reference books, commonsense books and picture books which develop the thinking faculty and intelligence of children and pupils and which are helpful for parents to bring up children.
“The books for the development of intellectual faculties of children and pupils have been compiled to bring up children healthily, inculcate good habits and help them understand different matters and phenomena that can be witnessed in various sectors of life and interesting world of nature. The books are now popular with children and their parents,” said Ri Jong Hak, deputy director of the publishing house.
