Instructor: Hyo Sang Lee
Classes are divided into two parts: two hours of lectures by an instructor and three hours of drill sections conducted by a drill instructor. 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 a variety of oral performances, reviews, and chapter quizzes. Besides chatper quizzes on Monday, vocabulary and dictation quizzes are given daily.
Students are expected to create simulated dialogues based on the main conversations in each lesson. Written assignments will also be given mainly from the Workbook. Students are responsible to read the main textbook including main texts (conversations and narrations), vocabulary (new words and expressions and notes), grammar notes, as well as culture notes.
Recording Your Voice: Your Voice Students will be asked to submit audio files of their oral practices. A link to the site will be posted on Oncourse.
In order to take advantage of the lab material effectively the following procedures are advised:
* Attendance check will be strictly enforced; extremely low attendance may further lower your final grade, unless written proof of inevitable circumstance is provided; No more than 5 excuses will be granted. No excuses are allowed unless a written proof of inevitable circumstances (e.g. doctor's notes, police reports, parents' notes, performance schedule, job interview schedule, etc.) is submitted to Prof. Lee --NOT to your AI. Morea than 5 unexcused absences will result in one lower grade scale (e.g. from A to A-) More than 10 unexcused absences will automatically result in an F.
Those who have the perfect attendance record (no unexcused absence) will be awarded 5 days of extra credit (about 1% 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. Participating in Korea-related events such as Korean Conversation Club, Korean film showing, cultural events, etc. will also be awarded extra-credits upon submitting a report. The report for each event must be submitted within a week from the day of the event attended.
** Your performance in each drill section will be monitored and graded by your drill instructor each day. The grading criteria not only includes your Korean language performance, but also your attitude, punctuality, cooperation, preparation and participation.
*** Homeworks are due at the beginning of each class of the day specified as deadline. Homeworks submitted after the class will be considered to be late homework.
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; the homework submitted after a class is counted as a late homework.
Grades will be assigned based on the following scale:
There will be no makeup exam unless provided with a written proof for a justifiable reason. Any makeup exam must be taken within one week from the original exam date.
Students' progress will be monitored and considered for the final grade, especially for the borderline cases.
Written assignments will be graded on your efforts as well as on your performance.
