  • Overview

    This course is specially designed for students who have no or little knowledge of Korean to acquire four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) of the basic Korean language in the real-world setting. Each day of 4.5 hours of the class consists of a mini-lecture and an activity session. Students will gain the foundation of the Korean alphabet, grammar, vocabulary, expressions, and cultural points during lecture. Then, they will practice the learned knowledge in pairs or in small groups during the activity session in the classroom, and then reach out its usage outside of classroom. Students will be frequently asked to interact with native Korean speakers as a classroom activity, homework or project to maximize their Korean learning.
