The lessons

The curriculum aims to teach the Korean language as a foreign language with cultural elements for adults. The students will acquire the Korean language skills that are practically used in daily life.

Therefore, the focus will be on speaking, listening and vocabulary exercises during the lessons.

The required course book is Active Korean (volume 1 to 4) by Seoul National University.

For Advanced class, the required course book is I love Korean (volume 5) by Seoul University.

The workload is moderately intensive; we demand at least two hours of self-study/homework every week.
