KREN-321 Business Korean
Fall for 2017-2018
This course emphasizes advanced oral language skills and specialized vocabulary used in a wide range of Korean business situations. The first part of the course emphasizes basic terminologies and phrases often used in the Korean business setting. The second part of the course focuses on developing situational dialogues based on the previously built vocabulary. The goal of this course is to provide students with both linguistic skills and practical information they need to conduct business with Koreans. They will understand the Korean way of thinking when doing business and develop critical thinking and cultural awareness through different responses in situational dialogues between Westerners and Koreans. Some Hanja (Sino-Korean characters) will also be introduced to fortify students’ understanding of the Korean language used in real life situations, as well as professional settings. Also, Korean business etiquette, Korean customs, and culture will be taught. Students will watch videos showing actual business transactions in Korea. Thus, through dialogues related to business situations, and multimedia, students will acquire the practical knowledge of key aspects of Korean business practice. Prerequisite: KREN 212 or the equivalent level of knowledge of Korean.
