Korean 10A is designed for college students who intend to build a solid foundation in beginning level Korean. It is assumed that students have little or no knowledge of Korean. Upon the successful completion of the course, students will be able to communicate in everyday situations in simple Korean. Topics include greetings, talking about campus life and family, numbers and telling time, the course of daily life and weekend plans. Students will also be exposed to important information on culture, contemporary issues, and traditions in Korea through video clips and films.
This class is a continuation of Korean 10A. Students who did not take Korean 10A need to be assessed through a placement test before they attend this class. In Korean 20B, students learn fundamental and comprehensive grammar appropriate to the basic level. Students are expected to continuously build standard Korean language skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. Students will be able to read and write short Korean paragraphs and be able to carry simple yet proper conversations in everyday life situations by the end of the semester. Korean 20B is designed primarily to enhance students’ basic language skills with the integration of cultural topics such as films, video clips and poems.
