This new class promotes the active use of formal Korean, as well as reading and writing tasks related to work, school, problem solving, and public life. Lessons will also develop skills for using Korean in professional discourse in business, arts, humanities, and social and biological sciences. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to understand and appropriately use vocabulary, expressions, and a variety of sentence patterns. Students will feel more confident reading published materials in Korean, writing short essays expressing personal views on contemporary issues, and discussing current events in the Korean media.
