This section for graduate students only (2 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.
