This section for undergraduates only (4 credits).

P: grade of C or higher in K102 or equivalent proficiency

This objective of this course is to equip students with
communicative skills in speaking, reading, and writing at the
intermediate level in Korean, with special attention given to the
speaker=s stance, e.g., in judgment, inference, and evaluation, or
subjective assessment of the ideas entertained, and in expressing
more complex relations between events (such as cause, reason,
purpose, condition, concession, intention, background). Skills for
simple narration and written report will be enhanced, and some basic
Chinese characters may be introduced.


Classes are divided into two parts: two hours of lectures and three
hours of drill sections. Lectures will include explanations of
conversational patterns in grammatical and pragmatic terms. Drill
sections will provide the students with opportunities to familiarize
themselves with the patterns learned in lectures and to practice
them in actual situations. Among the three drill sessions, Monday
will be designated mainly for review, reading, and weekly quizzes.
Besides weekly quizzes on Mondays, there are vocabulary and
dictation quizzes on Wednesdays and Fridays.
