Course Objectives
K402/502 is the second semester of Fourth
-Year Korean, Advanced level. The goal is to equip students with proficiency in all four language skills--speaking, listening, reading, and writing--at an advanced level. The course will deal with various genres of authentic material (some slightly tailored to fit the level) on various topics. The course is largely content- and task-based. Particularly focused will be on enhancing ability to advance one's opinion as well as discussing and sharing thoughts and ideas. Expanding one's vocabulary to include more complex and abstract concepts is also a main goal of this course. By the end of the course, students will be able to observe the structure and function of Korean language as accurately as possible and to critically evaluate generalizations of Korean language. Also, students will be able to communicate facts, ideas, concepts, and arguments on topics regarding Korean society and culture to the professor and with other students orally and/or literally.
