1. Course Description

K102 (Elementary Korean 2) is the second part of First Year Korean. The course provides students with further conversational & grammatical skills beyond those learned in the first semester. The objective of the course is to equip students with communicative skills in speaking, reading, and writing with more complex structures in Korean such as various kinds of speaker's stance, desire, intention, evaluation, judgement, assessment on the propositional content conveyed, and more complex relations between two events such as cause, reason, purpose, concession, background, condition, etc. Students are expected to be able to command a lengthy narrative discourse, say, on school life, family, vacation plan, hobbies, etc.

Classes are divided into two parts: two hours of lectures conducted by Prof. Lee, and three hours of drill sections conducted by an associate instructor (AI). Lectures will include explanations of those conversational patterns in grammatical and pragmatic terms.

Drill sections will provide the students with opportunities to practice in actual communicative situations with various tasks and activities. Among the three drill sessions, Monday will be designated mainly for reports on weekend, listening activities, and chapter quizzes. Besides chapter quizzes on every other Monday, there are occasional vocabulary and/or dictation quizzes.

Attendance check will be strictly enforced; extremely low attendance may further lower your final grade, unless written proof of inevitable circumstance is provided; more than 5 absences will result in one grade scale down, and another grade scale down for every 5 absences thereafter.  With a legitimate documented justification, up to 5 excuses will be given.

Those who have the perfect attendance record (no absence) will get awarded 5 days of Extra credit (slightly less than1% of the total grade); if your absence is zero due to the excuses granted, the number of excuses will be deducted from the 5 days of extra credit. [Note: Extra-credits will not erase your absences.]

Extra-credits (up to 5 days of attendance) will be granted for participating in Korea-related events including Korean Conversation Club meetings and Korean movie nights if a report on the event is submitted in Korean.

** Your performance in each drill section will be monitored by your AI and be graded each day. The grading criteria not only includes your Korean language performance, but also your attitude, cooperation, and participation. If you miss a drill section, your performance point is zero. With an excused absence, you will get an average score.

*** Late homework must be handed in within a week from the deadline: the maximum point for late homework will be 10% less for each day delayed.

There will be no makeup exam unless provided with a written proof for a justifiable reason. In case a make up exam is granted, it must be done within a week from the original exam date. Students’ progress will be monitored and considered for the final grade, especially for the border line cases.

Written assignments will be graded on your efforts as well as on your performance. Some may be graded on the following scales:
 √++ (10 points), √(++) (9.5), √+ (9.0), √(+) (8.5), √ (8.0), √(-) (7.5), √- (7.0), √(--) (6.5), √-- (6.0)

4. Academic Integrity:  

As a student at IU, you are expected to adhere to the standards and policies detailed in the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct (Code). When you submit a paper with your name on it in this course, you are signifying that the work contained therein is all yours, unless otherwise cited or referenced. Any ideas or materials taken from another source for either written or oral use must be fully acknowledged. If you are unsure about the expectations for completing an assignment or taking a test or exam, be sure to seek clarification beforehand. All suspected violations of the Code will be handled according to University policies. Sanctions for academic misconduct may include a failing grade on the assignment, reduction in your final grade, a failing grade in the course, among other possibilities, and must include a report to the Dean of Students.

5. Lab assignments:
Lab attendance is required. For each week, you are expected to do the assigned lab material at least for 1 hour. Writeup assignments will also be given regularly on the lab material.

 For your convenience, the audio material from the textbook and the workbook is available on-line in the web.

In order to take advantage of the lab material effectively the following procedures are advised:

 Step 1.  Listen to the tape without written material. Check how much you could understand.
 Step 2.  Listen to the same part again, with the written material

 Step 3.  Repeat after the model for each utterance (avoid using the written material as much as you can).

 Step 4.  Go over the material again without written material. Make sure you understand the material thoroughly.

 Step 5.  Give yourself a dictation test for the main texts (conversations and narrations).

 Step 6.  Check your answers with the textbook.

              (Steps 5 and 6 are strongly recommended to enhance your listening and writing & spelling skills)
