Summary of Course Description:              

As a continuation of KOREAN 111, this course is designed for students who have passed KOREAN 111 or have acquired language competence through a stay or exchange in a Korean-speaking country.

It aims to expand students’ communicative skills in modern Korean to an intermediate level. The course is designed for students to achieve this through active participation in diverse activities of listening, speaking, reading and writing, which incorporate further grammar points and vocabulary together with distinctive aspects of Korean culture.

 

Objectives

By the end of the course, students should be able to:

  • Carry out a conversation and a discussion on much broader topics of daily life using appropriate speech levels
  • Comprehend intermediate-level Korean texts
  • Write about their own everyday life

 

Important Information

Students who have prior knowledge of Korean and wish to study Korean at The University of Auckland for the first time must complete a Language Ability Declaration.

 Workload and deadlines for submission of coursework:           

The University of Auckland's expectation is that students spend 10 hours per week on a 15-point course, including time in class and personal study. Students should manage their academic workload and other commitments accordingly. Deadlines for coursework are set by course convenors and will be advertised in course material. You should submit your work on time. In extreme circumstances, such as illness, you may seek an extension but you may be required to provide supporting information before the assignment is due. Late assignments without a pre-approved extension may be penalised by loss of marks – check course information for details.

 

Well-being always comes first

We all go through tough times during the semester, or see our friends struggling. There is lots of help out there - for more information, look at this Canvas page, which has links to various support services in the University and the wider community.
