SELT Survey Results

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.   

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Use a vocabulary that allows comprehension of texts on such themes as family relationships, cultural events and wider society.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of cultural communication practices in interpersonal relationships in university, social life and family.

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 Assessment

Marks 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.


See Assessment Task 1 above.


See Assessment Task 6 above.

Assessment Task 1

Value: 10 %
Due Date: 28/05/2021
Learning Outcomes: 1,2,3,4

Participation in lectures and tutorials (10%)

Classroom participation is crucial for enhancing proficiency in a foreign language. Therefore, students are strongly encouraged to attend all sessions and make the best opportunity to practice Korean. You are expected to be prepared to participate in every lecture and tutorial session and to communicate in Korean with their peers and the instructor as much as possible. Absence, arriving late or leaving early (more than 10 minutes) without notification is considered tardy. More than TWO absences from lectures or tutorial session (or FOUR tardiness) are subject to the deduction of points. If you cannot be present in class on time, contact you instructor at least 12 hours in advance to avoid a penalty. You won't be assessed based on the level of language proficiency, so don't be afraid of making mistakes! Class participation in lectures (5%) and tutorial sessions (5%) will be assessed based upon the following criteria:

  •  4-5: Active involvement and strong engagement in lectures and tutorial activities (e.g., asking questions, responding to questions, cooperation with peers, speaking exercises and punctuality)
  • 2-3: Moderate participation in classes 
  • 1: Little participation in classes 
  • 0: Missed more than 1/3 of lectures and tutorials 

Assessment Task 2

Learning Outcomes: 1,2

THREE compositions (30%)

  • Purpose: To provide students with an opportunity to tell their own stories on a given topic while practicing vocabulary and grammar patterns learned from each lesson of the textbook. Instead of regular tests after each lesson of the textbook, students can consolidate their learning from each lesson before proceeding to the next lesson.
  • What: You will need to take the below three steps. See the "Online Submission" section for submission requirements:
  1. Step 1 (24%): Submit a 12-15 sentence-long essay along with an audio recording of your essay (appx. 1-1.5 min). Topics will be given by the instructor in class. Your essay should include a glossary (a list of new expressions), TWO T/F or multiple-choice questions and references (if applicable). THREE essays and audio recordings are due 1 week after the completion of each lesson of the textbook (i.e. Weeks 3, 5, 7 or 9). See the "Online Submission" section for submission requirements.
  2. Step 2 (6%): The instructor will post up 2-3 essays of your peers (without their names) and their questions on Wattle after students submit their essay. Read the selected essays and complete the reading comprehension questions. Your mark will be based on completion or incompletion.
  3. Step 3 (portfolio; subject to the deduction of 5% if you fail to complete): You will need to submit a revised version of your essays by the end of W12. Full credits (24%) will be granted only to those who submit their portfolio. You are encouraged to revise each essay right after receiving the instructor's feedback.
  • Note: All of your written assignments submitted to this course (including but not limited to essays) must be your own GENUINE work. You may ask questions to your Korean family members, friends, language partners or your instructor, but you cannot let others write or proofread your assignments. Please do not let others take away your opportunity to learn and improve your Korean. Extensive assistance from native speakers or online translators may be considered academic misconduct as described in ANU policies. In order to avoid penalties, it is important that students use Korean appropriate to the level of this course. Also, provide a list of any sources used in the completion of your assignments including an online dictionary. Clarify ANY part for which assistance was received from native speakers and underline the relevant section(s) in your glossy.

Allow enough time to practice your reading.
  2.  A short summary of the story followed by a glossary and TWO review questions: Summarise the plot of your story that you read in your own words (5-7 sentences). Your summary must include a list of words and expressions that you learned from reading the portion of your storybook.
