Korean 3 emphasises practical language skills to further develop students' abilities to communicate in Korean in a wide range of daily situations. Competency in everyday spoken language is stressed, with lessons on formal and informal interaction with peers, and developing a vocabulary to navigate academic life. Students will be able to learn grammatical points and constructions that allow them to conduct appropriate forms of written and oral communication in frequently occurring situations: family life, communicating with teachers, telephone conversations, and navigating peer group communication. Studying in this course will also allow students to learn about the important role that cultural events like celebrations, milestones and festivals play in Korean life.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Use a vocabulary that allows comprehension of texts on such themes as family relationships, cultural events and wider society.
- Demonstrate an understanding of grammatical points and constructions to conduct appropriate forms of written and oral communication in frequently occurring situations: family life, communicating with teachers, telephone conversations, and navigating peer group communication.
- Communicate in speaking and writing on such everyday situations as formal and informal interactions with peers, telephone conversations, academic life, and discussions of their own lives and interests.
- Demonstrate an understanding of cultural communication practices in interpersonal relationships in university, social life and family.
This is a co-taught course. Any cap on enrolments in one course applies to both courses combined.
On successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to engage at an Intermediate level of Korean.
Students with native speaker proficiency (may include cognate languages and dialects) must review the placement test site and contact the CAP Student Centre for appropriate enrolment advice. Students with previous “language experience or exposure” are required to take a language placement test to ensure enrolment at the most appropriate level.
Relevant past experience includes:
- Previous study of the language (both formal and informal, for example but not limited to, at school, or, home, or through online activities, etc.)
- Being exposed to the language in childhood via a family member or friend
- Travel or living in a country where the language is spoken
- The language being spoken in your home (even if you do not speak it yourself)
Students who are not sure if they need to take a placement test should seek advice from the course or language convenor. Students who intentionally misrepresent their language proficiency level may be investigated under the Academic Misconduct Rule 2015 as having failed to comply with assessment directions and having sought unfair advantage. This may results in a penalty such as reduced grades or failure of the course.
Students are not permitted to enrol in a language course below one that they have already successfully completed, except with permission of the language and/or course convenor.
