SELT Survey Results

The course uses Korean film to enhance students’ ability to listen, speak, read and write Korean with nuance and sophistication. Films provide excellent learning tools for developing advanced level language skills and also for gaining historical and sociocultural understanding. Students will view a variety of films that touch on Korean history, culture and society.  The films will serve as a resource for modeling grammar and discourse patterns that are common in conversational Korean.  The lecture is largely designed to guide and facilitate students’ active learning to gain advanced level Korean in both oral and written forms.

Learning Outcomes

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

  1. Demonstrate a sophisticated command of the spoken and written vocabulary, sentence structures, and styles appropriate to a wide range of topics on Korean film and society, using honorifics as the situation demands.
  2. Independently gather and appraise Korean source materials; summarise and evaluate the main ideas of complex Korean texts.
  3. Appreciate the linguistic and visual styles used in different film genres with an appropriate mode of critical discourse.
  4. Read, discuss, and analyse a range of cultural and socio-political phenomena.

We ensure that all members of our community understand how to engage in academic work in ways that are consistent with, and actively support academic integrity. The ANU expects staff and students to uphold high standards of academic integrity and act ethically and honestly, to ensure the quality and value of the qualification that you will graduate with. The University has policies and procedures in place to promote academic integrity and manage academic misconduct.
