ASIANLAN 238 is a continuation of ASIANLAN 138. This course is designed for heritage students who can command daily conversational Korean but lack systematic and accurate understanding of Korean grammar and usage. Within one semester, this course covers language and culture topics which are equivalent to the curricula of the second-year Korean courses (ASIANLAN 235 and 236). Through various course materials and activities, students will have opportunities to develop communication skills in speaking and writing that are grammatically accurate and pragmatically appropriate by noticing any gaps between their heritage language and the standard modern Korean. Various authentic materials such as movies, TV shows, video clips, cartoons, and songs will be integrated in this course to help students expand their prior knowledge on Korea and Korean culture.

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
  • Converse with native Korean speakers about general topics with ease
  • Read and understand intermediate-low material
  • Write grammatical paragraphs on a wide range of topics about Korean society and culture
  • Make an oral presentation of 10 minutes on a chosen topic

Course Requirements:

Grading is based on participation and attendance, quizzes, lab activity, compositions, presentations, and oral and written final exams.
