SELT Survey Results

This course completes the development of the low intermediate 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 students 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.
