This course is designed for intermediate students and is aimed at developing student’s writing skills and linguistic competence. Students will gain extensive practice in reading, composition and comprehension. Vocabulary skills are deepened by students learning to recognise and use a broad vocabulary encompassing terms encountered in news media, popular culture and current affairs.

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, geography, economic and politics.

Students with native speaker proficiency (may include cognate languages and dialects) must review the language proficiency assessment site and contact the CAP Student Centre for appropriate enrolment advice. Students with previous “language experience or exposure” are required to undertake a language proficiency assessment 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 undertake a language proficiency assessment 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.
