This study aims to propose the principles and practices of the development of Korean reading textbooks using Korean culture as a content area from a cross-cultural perspective. Reading textbooks based on content areas contain a certain amount of text, so it is common to assume that learners' proficiency is above the intermediate level. As a result, reading dealing with cultural areas at the beginner level is very limited. This study proposes the selection and arrangement of cultural items, activities, and task design in order to utilize reading materials in the cultural domain in both intermediate and beginner levels. This study aims to present an example of the development of a textbook, ‘Intermediate Reading Books for Thai Learners of Korean (Park et. al. 2023)’ and ‘Elementary Reading Books for Thai Learners of Korean (Park et. al. 2024)’, Which are being used as textbooks in secondary schools in Thailand. In the activity and task design of the unit, a plan to use online materials in textbooks produced in the form of reactive e-books rather than traditional paper books is also suggested by reflecting the changed learning preference of learners.
