K202 is the second part of the second 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 speakers stances, evaluation, assessment, judgement and attitudes on the events encountered, and more complex relations between two events such as cause, reason, purpose, concession, intention, background, condition, etc. Students are expected to be able to command a lengthy dialogue regarding various topics such as birthday party, hair style and fashion, hobbies, traditional holidays, marriage, jobs, etc.
Classes are divided into two parts: two hours of lectures and three hours of drill sections. 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 weekly quizzes. Besides weekly quizzes on Monday, there are occasional vocabulary and/or dictation quizzes.
(i) Main textbook: Integrated Korean: Intermedate 2 (2nd Ed.)
Students are expected to create simulated dialogues based on the main conversations in each lesson and to memorize set dialogues assigned for each task/function. Written assignments will be given mainly from the Workbook. Students are responsible to read the main textbook including main texts (conversations and narrations), vocabuary (new words and expressions and notes), grammar notes, as well as culture notes.
For your convenience, the audio material from the textbooks and the workbook is available on-line in the web. Go to: http://languagelab.bh.indiana.edu/Korean2.html
In order to take advantage of the lab material effectively the
following procedures are advised:
* Attendance check will be strictly enforced; 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.). In any circumstances, no more than 5 excuses will be granted. More than 10 unexcused absences will result in an automatic F.
Those who will not have missed any class will get 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. [Note: Extra-credits will not erase your absences.]
Extra-creditswill be granted for:
(i) Participating in Korea-related events including Korean Conversation Club meetings and Korean movie nights when a report on the event is submitted in Korean.
(ii) Posting a FaceBook message in K202 FaceBook Group (K202 Spring 2015)
** 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.
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 day the student resumes to class.
