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.

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.
