In Korean 2 students further develop their listening and reading comprehension skills and oral and written communication skills. Students can learn to recognise and apply in conversation and writing a broad range of sentence structures and tenses for everyday situations. Conversational situations covered in the course include one’s personal or family situation, leisure, shopping, education, and employment; effectively applying honorifics in conversation and writing. Studying in this course will also allow students to understand how cultural issues such as respect shown in relation to age influence how Korean is spoken.  .

  1. Read and write the Korean alphabet with confidence.
  2. Use an active vocabulary of around 750 items.

  4. Communicate in speech and writing on topics related, but not limited, to their personal or family situation, leisure, shopping, education, and employment; effectively apply honorifics in conversation and writing.

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.

----

As language courses are sequential, this may mean that students can only commence their language course in the following semester.
