This course is designed for advanced intermediate students and is aimed at further developing students' writing skills and linguistic competence. Students will gain extensive practice in reading, composition and comprehension. Vocabulary skills are further consolidated by students learning to recognise and use a broad vocabulary encompassing terms encountered in literary, political, and historical texts, with limited use of a dictionary. Building upon grammar covered in earlier courses students in Korean 6 will learn to express ideas using grammatically and stylistically appropriate language to the situation to give explanations, make academic presentations, evaluate others' opinions, and confidently engage in debates. In this course emphasis is placed upon students learning to develop the skills needed to read and comprehend information relating to Korea in a variety of genres and topics such as culture, history, social issues and current political developments.
