This article aims to explore the importance and role of illustrations in teaching materials. Through an analysis of the quantity, location, and provided information of illustrations in the Korean language textbook "Standard Korean 3", the key role of illustrations in teaching materials is revealed, emphasizing the importance of teachers' attention to the role of illustrations in Korean language teaching. The function of illustrations is not only to guide learners into a learning state, help them understand and remember course content, but also to provide a more comfortable and relaxed learning environment, assist learners in understanding abstract concepts, stimulate learning interests and motivation, and provide cultural background knowledge. Therefore, the role of illustrations in language teaching materials is crucial, as they can not only enhance learners' learning interests and motivation but also help learners better understand and remember course content, thereby improving the effectiveness of Korean language learning. In Korean language teaching, teachers should fully utilize illustrations and incorporate them as an important component of the teaching process.
