This tertiary-level extension course for senior secondary students will complement the existing ACT Continuing Korean language course and other similar courses offered in NSW and elsewhere in Australia with an emphasis on contemporary and popular Korean culture. Topics include the transformation of the Korean language and communication strategy through technology, the emergence of K-Pop, and Korean in business. The course draws on the significant research into and success of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL ) - both in Europe and Australia to engage students creatively through guided research into student-directed projects, and high-order content delivered in a university setting.
This course has been designed to be accessible to intermediate learners of the language. The Korean Beginning-ANU H course for beginning learners has a parallel course structure and approach, but will be assessed at a beginning level of language learning.

Learning Outcomes

  1.  Consolidate the foundation of their Korean language skills, and demonstrate a solid understanding of the key words and phrases needed to communicate at an intermediate level of Korean; 
  2. Demonstrate their understanding of major changes in the Korean language since the beginning of the twentieth century.
  3. Conduct an investigation into Korean culture using Korean language on-line resources.
  4. Demonstrate understanding of ways in which language shapes and embodies culture and identity in Korea.
  5. Demonstrate capacity and confidence in accessing Korean language sources, extending their engagement beyond materials available in English.
