COURSE DESCRIPTION  
K201 is the first part of the second year Korean. The objective of the course is to equip students with communicative skills in speaking, reading, and writing at the intermediate level in Korean, such as expanding simple ideas into imposing various kinds of the speaker's stance, e.g. judgement, inference, and evaluation or subjective assessment of the ideas entertained, and expressing more complex relations between events, such as cause, reason, purpose, condition, concession, intention, background, etc. Skills for simple narration and written report will be enhanced. Students are expected to be able to and command a lengthy narrative discourse on personal experience.

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.

COURSE MATERIAL 
You will need a main textbook  and a workbook for this class (both available at the IU Bookstore and T.I.S.) as well as supplementary in-class material:

 (i) Main textbook: Integrated Korean: Beginning 2 (2nd ed.), L17 & Intermedate 1 (2nd ed.) L1-7 
(ii) Workbook: Integrated Korean Workbook: Beginning 2 (2nd ed.) L17 & Intermedate 1 (2nd ed.) L1-7
(iii) Additional materials: Available on Oncourse Course Site under the weekly schedule.

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.

LAB ASSIGNMENTS 
For each week, you are expected to listen to the audio recordings at least for 1 hour. For each week’s listening assignments, see the weekly schedule. Writeup assignments will also be given regularly. For your convenience, the audio material from the textbooks and the workbook is available on-line in the web. Go to: http://kleartextbook.com/?p=1502 or visit the Oncourse course site and follow the link.

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:

  • Step 1.  Listen to the tape without written material to see 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 on the main texts. 
    (Strongly recommended to enhance your listening and writing skills as well as improving your spellings)
