Credits 5.00, Grades 10-12
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Korean I
This course is designed to assist students in learning interpersonal and academic Korean in a
comfortable and supportive environment. The grammatical structures learned in Korean I are reviewed
and refined. Students improve their abilities in the target language in the four areas of communication:
listening, speaking, reading and writing and acquire a greater understanding of cultural contexts within a
global society. The course increases awareness of the Korean culture and civilization and this
awareness is enhanced by exposure to selected literary passages as well as authentic materials. These
experiences lead students to understand broad concepts and develop strategies for analyzing these
concepts across the disciplines. Differentiated teaching strategies are implemented for heritage or nonheritage students. The orientation toward communication and cultural awareness is the primary focus of
planning and instruction.
