Outline of the course

This course is for beginners learning Korean for the first time in their life. The students learn phonics, the character system of the Korean language and basic conversational skills to survive in Korea. By learning basic grammar, vocabulary, conversation, reading, listening and writing as well as Korean culture in a categorized and integrated methodology using various teaching materials, the students effectively obtain the minimum communication skills necessary to survive in Korean society through step-by-step practice that can then develop in the socio-cultural dimension.

Objective of the course

The objective of this course is to provide beginner level learners with a minimum linguistic ability to survive in Korean society by studying sounds, the alphabet, basic grammar and vocabulary. After the course, the students should be able to speak simple Korean; give a self-introduction, ask for directions and information on locations, go shopping,tell the time, issue greetings, make congratulatory remarks and involve themselves in simple Q&As about daily life.  By obtaining the cultural knowledge, customs and manners inherent to the language, on top of fluency and accuracy in using the language, the students build the ability to use Korean with enough ease and comfort that they should not feel the psychological burden of embarrassment that an adult learner could otherwise feel.
