Have you been interested in learning about “한류”(Hallyu or the Korean Wave)? If you’re interested in learning about the Korean language and culture, you’ll love this course. Here, you’ll learn to read and write “Hangul”, the Korean alphabet, “survival” words, and daily expressions in modern Korean culture. By the end of the course, you will be able to carry on basic conversations on topics such as dining out and shopping.
We encourage students to participate in our language courses more than one time in order to truly learn the material taught over 10 lessons. It also gives you additional exposure to varying activities within each topic.
Our online hybrid language courses make language learning flexible and convenient. The use of both synchronous and asynchronous delivery styles allows for both real-time virtual classroom conversation practice (synchronous delivery) and self-paced study (asynchronous delivery). The synchronous delivery style will occur during the scheduled class dates and time, using Zoom for videoconferencing, chat and screen sharing for class instruction and pair/group work. The asynchronous delivery style uses Brightspace, an online environment where learners can access class materials and resources for self-paced study throughout the week. Educational activities can include exercises, readings, forums, audio/video files, quizzes, etc.
