This Intermediate Korean course is specially designed for students who already have the basic survival skills and acquire the intermediate level of four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) in real life setting. Each day of 3 hours of class is filled with lectures, activities and projects to promote active learning. Intermediate knowledge of Korean grammar, vocabulary, expressions, idioms and cultural points will be given. Students will practice the learned knowledge in small groups in the classroom (and a few times with native speakers), and then reach out its usage outside of the classroom through various projects. This Project-Based and Content-Based course will maximize students’ Korean learning through frequent interactions with native speakers and using live resources while they stay in Korea.


The goal of this course is to refine survival skills in Korean and broaden the scope of everyday conversation to intermediate level. Students will gain confidence in using Korean about the familiar topics with native Korean speakers.
