This is an advanced Korean language course, designed for students who have successfully completed Advanced Korean: Film and Society, or have equivalent proficiency. The course utilizes Korean authentic texts, including short stories, editorials, travelogues, essays, cartoons, recipes, or film/drama reviews, to enhance students’ ability to read, speak, and write Korean at a professional level. The lecture is largely designed to guide and facilitate students’ active learning to gain advanced level Korean in oral and written forms.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Demonstrate a sophisticated command of the spoken and written vocabulary, sentence structures, and styles appropriate to a wide range of topics on Korean literature and media, using honorifics as the situation demands.
- Independently gather and appraise Korean source materials; summarise and evaluate the main ideas of complex Korean literary and media texts.
- Appreciate and use styles used in different written genres.
- Read, discuss, and analyse a range of cultural and socio-political phenomena.
Students will be given feedback in the following forms in this course:
- Written comments
- Verbal comments
- Feedback to the whole class, to groups and individuals
Student FeedbackANU is committed to the demonstration of educational excellence and regularly seeks feedback from students. Students are encouraged to offer feedback directly to their Course Convener or through their College and Course representatives (if applicable). The feedback given in these surveys is anonymous and provides the Colleges, University Education Committee and Academic Board with opportunities to recognise excellent teaching, and opportunities for improvement. The Surveys and Evaluation website provides more information on student surveys at ANU and reports on the feedback provided on ANU courses.

PoliciesANU has educational policies, procedures and guidelines, which are designed to ensure that staff and students are aware of the University’s academic standards, and implement them. Students are expected to have read the Academic Misconduct Rule before the commencement of their course. Other key policies and guidelines include:
- Student Assessment (Coursework) Policy and Procedure
- Special Assessment Consideration Policy and General Information
- Student Surveys and Evaluations
- Deferred Examinations
- Student Complaint Resolution Policy and Procedure
Assessment RequirementsThe ANU is using Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website Students may choose not to submit assessment items through Turnitin. In this instance you will be required to submit, alongside the assessment item itself, hard copies of all references included in the assessment item.
Moderation of AssessmentMarks that are allocated during Semester are to be considered provisional until formalised by the College examiners meeting at the end of each Semester. If appropriate, some moderation of marks might be applied prior to final results being released.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend all classes to understand, discuss and write about each topic. Participation in lectures and tutorials, including responses to other students' oral presentations (individual and group), will be carefully recorded and included in the participation mark. Students are expected to communicate and cooperate with each other in order to learn about the Korean language, culture and knowledge of literature and media.
Assessment Task 1
Learning Outcomes: 1, 2, 4
Class attendance and participation
- In order to improve student's Korean language skills the course is heavily discussion-oriented. Attending each class and active participation is critically important.
- Actual attendance and participation in class like asking questions, giving answers or making comments on other students' oral presentation and exchanging opinions will be counted as class participation for every lecture and tutorial. It is not a matter of the quality of the speech but rather about a active attitude, so students are encouraged to speak freely and more in class.
Assessment Task 2
Learning Outcomes: 1, 2, 3, 4
Homework and quizzes
- Homework and brief quizzes will be assigned regularly in order to check students' understanding of the course.
- Accumulated homework and quiz results help a convener to understand the level of teaching.
- Homework and quizzes will review and check students' learning from previous week.
Assessment Task 3
Learning Outcomes: 1, 2,4
- Individual oral presentation followed by Q&A is designed to enhance speaking skills and communicative strategies.
- Students are required to study a designated reading that they choose from the topics of the course and give an oral presentation to the class in a tutorial for 20 minutes. The presentation is expected to include a summary of the reading text, explanation of difficult or important words in the text, the student's own interpretation of the text and the cultural background and possible relation or extended discussion to the main reading text discussed during the lecture. In addition to the contents of the presentation, how it is delivered, such as fluency, choice of words, grammar and pronunciation, is also marked.
- A presentation material such as PPT slides or a Word document file needs to be uploaded on Wattle by the day before the oral presentation.
Assessment Task 4
Learning Outcomes: 1, 2, 3
- The written test will reflect the culmination of the learning done over the course of the semester, not only in terms of language proficiency at a professional level but also acquisition of relevant historical and sociocultural knowledge through reading and writing about the weekly topics. The written test should conform to proper academic style, using appropriate level vocabulary, grammar and discourse patterns.
- Students answer topics among those covered in the course and write to critically discuss the phenomenon of contemporary Korea. A higher mark will be given to a student who effectively shows his/her understanding of the topic by adapting accurate expressions in a well-developed structure. It is also critical for students to present their own perspectives to the phenomenon rather than simply repeating what is said in the readings and to refer to relevant references where appropriate in their argument for better marks.
- The written test will occur during the week 9 tutorial.
Assessment Task 5
Learning Outcomes: 1, 2, 4
- After learning about YouTube, K pop and Korea's media industry, students will form groups and create their group project.
- Each group will have a maximum of 30 mins to present and Q&A. Students will present their research and work with other classmates.
- Through the group project, students are expected to research using a variety Korean media tools, becoming familiar with colloquial and modern Korean expressions.
