Instructor: Jungsoo Kim
Drill Instructor: Eunyoung Oh
Classes are divided into two parts: two hours of lectures by an instructor and three hours of drill sessions conducted by a drill instructor. Lectures will include explanations of those conversational patterns in grammatical and pragmatic terms. Drill sessions 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. In addition to chapter quizzes on Monday, vocabulary and dictation quizzes will be given in each class.
(i) Main textbook: Integrated Korean: Intermedate 2 (2nd ed.)
In order to take advantage of the lab material effectively the following procedures are advised:
RECORDING ASSIGNMENTS: There will be recording assignments throughout the semester. The link to the site will be posted on Oncourse.
* Attendance check will be strictly enforced; extremely low attendance may further lower the final grade, unless written proofs of inevitable circumstance are provided; No more than 5 excuses will be granted: more than 5 absences will result in one grade scale down, and more than 10 absences in lectures and drill sessions all together will result in an F for the course. 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.
** Your performance in each drill session 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, cooperation, preparation and participation.
*** Homeworks are due at the beginning of the class.
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.
1. 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.
2. Writing of main texts: maximum of 3% of the total grade (details will be posted on Oncourse.)
3. Participating in Korean events such as Korean Conversation Club, Korean film showing, cultural events, etc. will also be awarded extra-credit upon submitting a report in English. The report for each event must be submitted within a week from the day of the event attended.
Grades will be assigned based on the following scale:
There will be no makeup exam unless a written proof for a justifiable reason is submitted. 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 based on efforts as well as on performance.
*All Powerpoint slides used in class as well as additional course material will be posted on Oncourse (Resources section).
