KREN-211 Third Level Korean I
Fall for 2011-2012
This course is designed as a third level Korean course which concentrates on completing the process of learning Korean as a language so that students who complete this course can move on to specific areas of their interest and study on the content rather than the language itself. Students will develop higher Korean oral and written fluency through this course by reading advanced level material. Students will not only be required to understand the content but also be able to express their own thoughts based on the readings. In order to achieve this goal, students must gain an understanding of the Korean language and culture. Korean folk tales are a great source for learning not only the Korean language but also the fundamentals of Korean culture such as beliefs and traditions. Although this course puts major focus on reading skills, each class will integrate all five skills (listening, speaking, reading, writing, culture) as much as possible. Reading comprehension will be developed through complex texts and writing on social issues. Frequent classroom discussions and oral presentation on various topics will be complemented with utilizing the workbook. The final project will tie in these aspects together as students will be required to create and present their reenacted story. Some cultural movies will be shown.
