This tertiary-level extension course for senior secondary students complements the existing ACT Beginning Korean language course and similar courses elsewhere in Australia. It uses role-play-based language learning and integrated content to provide students who have just started studying Korean with an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the language within authentic contexts by means of guided research into student-directed projects, and high-order content delivered in a university setting.
Topics include: the evolution of Korean language since the start of the twentieth century; Gender and Korean language in the contemporary context; the impact of technology on the Korean Language; the influence of K-Pop on contemporary Korean.
This course has been designed to be accessible to ab-initio learners of the language. The Korean Continuing-ANU H course for intermediate learners has a parallel course structure and approach, but will be assessed at an intermediate level of language

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Consolidate the foundation of their Korean language skills, and demonstrate a solid understanding of the key words and phrases needed to communicate at a beginning 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, appropriate to their beginning level.
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.
