COURSE DESCRIPTION 
 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.

COURSE MATERIAL
You will need a main textbook  and a workbook for this class (both available at the IU Bookstore and T.I.S.).

 (i) Main textbook: Integrated Korean: Intermedate 2 (2nd Ed.)
 (ii) Workbook: Integrated Korean Workbook: Intermedate (2nd Ed.)
 (iii) In-class material are available through web page: see WEEKLY SCHEDULE

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.

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 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:
 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)
