This course introduces students to modern spoken Korean and to its writing system, Hangeul. In Korean 1 students begin to develop basic listening and reading comprehension as well as oral and written Korean communication skills. Emphasis is placed upon learning to recognize, pronounce and write the Korean alphabet and its most common consonant clusters. Students also will have the opportunity to learn a range of common sentence patterns and read and write basic sentences which allow them to write and speak about a range of everyday situations. Conversational situations covered in the course include meeting and greeting, describing possessions, and making basic use of honorifics in conversation and writing.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Recognise and pronounce the basic consonants and vowel sounds of Korean.
- Read and write the Korean alphabet and its most common consonant clusters.
- Use an active vocabulary of around 400 items.
- Recognise and apply in conversation and writing a limited range of simple sentence structures and tenses for everyday situations.
- Communicate in speech and writing to introduce themselves and others, to ask and answer questions about such personal information as where they live, their acquaintances, and their possessions; make basic use of honorifics in conversation and writing.
- Demonstrate a basic understanding of common socio-cultural activities such as self-introduction in the classroom and communicating with teachers and family members.

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:
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.
Please note that students edging too close to a fail at the end of the course (45-49) may not be automatically admitted to Korean 2. Their admission to Korean 2 will be pending successful completion of a supplementary assessment.
Assessment Task 1
Learning Outcomes: 1,2,3,4,5,6
Homework assignments and tutorial tests
Students are tested on the basis of their ability to apply new grammar in the tutorials every other week or so. Usually these tests take about 15 minutes. Homework assignments are also an important part of this assessment. Due date of the submission will be given in each homework. NB: When students cannot take tutorial tests or submit the homework assignments, they have to inform to the tutor at least 24 hours prior to the day and should provide the relevant document to get the extension of the submission or to take the supplementary test. NB: Attendance is not marked per se, but it is essential to students' progress. Students are strongly encouraged to come to all lectures and tutorials.
Assessment Task 2
Learning Outcomes: 1,3,4
Oral tests are conducted individually, in the office of the lecturer at the time listed on Wattle (approximately a week prior), for approximately 10 minutes. Students wishing to change the time allocated for their test are requested to try to swap with another student first, before asking the lecturer to change the time. At the start of the test, the lecturer will ask random questions (practised during tutorials), mostly about the student him/herself. He or she will then be asked to create or translate specific sentences, or conjugate verb forms. NB: Speed is important, but so is an accurate pronunciation, so students are discouraged to try to race through the exam.
Assessment Task 3
Learning Outcomes: 2,3,4,5
Final written test
Students are tested for their vocabulary, grammar and their skill at writing ??.
Assessment Task 4
Learning Outcomes: 1,3,4,5,6
Final oral test
Students will be tested for approximately 10 minutes on their ability to use an active vocabulary of around 400 items, and to recognise and apply in conversation a limited range of simple sentence structures and tenses for everyday situations. They will be expected to be able to introduce themselves and others, to ask and answer questions about such personal information as where they live, their acquaintances, and their possessions; make basic use of honorifics in conversation. Also, to demonstrate a basic understanding of common Korean socio-cultural activities.
Academic IntegrityAcademic integrity is a core part of our culture as a community of scholars. At its heart, academic integrity is about behaving ethically. This means that all members of the community commit to honest and responsible scholarly practice and to upholding these values with respect and fairness. The Australian National University commits to embedding the values of academic integrity in our teaching and learning. We ensure that all members of our community understand how to engage in academic work in ways that are consistent with, and actively support academic integrity. The ANU expects staff and students to uphold high standards of academic integrity and act ethically and honestly, to ensure the quality and value of the qualification that you will graduate with. The University has policies and procedures in place to promote academic integrity and manage academic misconduct. Visit the following Academic honesty & plagiarism website for more information about academic integrity and what the ANU considers academic misconduct. The ANU offers a number of services to assist students with their assignments, examinations, and other learning activities. The Academic Skills and Learning Centre offers a number of workshops and seminars that you may find useful for your studies.
Online SubmissionThe ANU uses 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. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Hardcopy SubmissionFor some forms of assessment (hand written assignments, art works, laboratory notes, etc.) hard copy submission is appropriate when approved by the Associate Dean (Education). Hard copy submissions must utilise the Assignment Cover Sheet. Please keep a copy of tasks completed for your records.
Late submission of assessment tasks without an extension are penalised at the rate of 5% of the possible marks available per working day or part thereof. Late submission of assessment tasks is not accepted after 10 working days after the due date, or on or after the date specified in the course outline for the return of the assessment item. Late submission is not accepted for take-home examinations.
Referencing RequirementsAccepted academic practice for referencing sources that you use in presentations can be found via the links on the Wattle site, under the file named “ANU and College Policies, Program Information, Student Support Services and Assessment”. Alternatively, you can seek help through the Students Learning Development website.
Teachers will endeavour to return all assignments within a week, and all mid-term test results upon the end of the mid-term break.
Extensions and PenaltiesExtensions and late submission of assessment pieces are covered by the Student Assessment (Coursework) Policy and Procedure The Course Convener may grant extensions for assessment pieces that are not examinations or take-home examinations. If you need an extension, you must request an extension in writing on or before the due date. If you have documented and appropriate medical evidence that demonstrates you were not able to request an extension on or before the due date, you may be able to request it after the due date.
Resubmission of Assignments
