Summary of Course Description              

This course is a continuation of KOREAN 300 and aims to help students expand communicative skills in modern Korean on an advanced intermediate level. You can achieve this through enhancing your learning strategy and active participation in diverse activities which incorporate further language structures, expressions, extensive vocabulary and knowledge of contemporary idioms together with distinctive aspects of Korean culture.


With your successful completion of the course, you should be able to strategically engage in

  • Listening to and reading authentic materials in Korean
  • Discussions on sociocultural topics
  • Expressing your thoughts and feelings in verbal and written forms at a much closer to native speaker level

Deadlines and submission of coursework:

Deadlines for coursework are non-negotiable. In extreme circumstances, such as illness, you may seek an extension but you will be required to provide a doctor's certificate before the assignment is due. All late assignments without a pre-approved extension will be penalised one mark per day late.


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.
