All activities that form part of this course will be delivered remotely in Semester 2 2020.
This course completes the development of the advanced beginner level of Korean listening and reading comprehension skills and spoken and written communication skills. Competency in everyday spoken language is stressed, with lessons on travel and dining vocabulary, hobbies, and on developing the ability to speak about one's own life and interests. The vocabulary learned in this course allows student to expand their ability to discuss such topics as life goals and wider social issues. Building upon grammar covered in earlier courses students in Korean 4 will learn and consolidate grammatical points and constructions that allow them to conduct appropriate forms of written and oral communication in frequently occurring situations: travel, dining, holidays, hobbies, peer group communication, and their own lives and interests. Studying in this course will also allow students to learn about important cultural practices such as national festivals, customs, costumes and cultures of food and drink.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Use a vocabulary to discuss such topics as personal interests, life goals, and wider social issues.
- Demonstrate an understanding of grammatical points and constructions to appropriately conduct both written and oral communication in frequently occurring situations.
- Demonstrate competence in everyday spoken language and in some depth on such topics as travel, dining, holidays, hobbies, peer group communication, and their own lives and interests.
- Demonstrate an understanding of cultural practices such as national festivals, customs, costumes and cultures of food and drink.
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 Advanced Beginner level of Korean.
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.
