Intermediate Korean 2

Please note: this is archived course information from 2021 for KOREAN 201.


Welcome to KOREAN 201. As a continuation of KOREAN 200, this course is designed for students who have passed KOREAN 200 or have acquired language competence through a stay or an exchange in Korea. This course is geared toward enabling students to communicate effectively and appropriately in a variety of social contexts by introducing further grammar points and their usage. With each grammar point they learn, students will be given sufficient examples, drill exercises, and authentic communicative tasks to use the language in the context of a particular communicative event. Distinctive aspects of Korean culture will be also covered in order to help students deepen their cultural awareness and sensitivity.


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

  1. communicate in modern Korean on much broader topics of daily life (e.g., work, travel) using appropriate speech levels, 
  2. comprehend intermediate-level Korean texts, 
  3. compose intermediate-level texts using learned grammar structures and expressions accurately and
  4. learn useful facts about Korean culture and contemporary lifestyle.
