Some of our Korean modules will follow the blended learning approach (half face-to-face in the classroom at Penrhyn Road and half by virtual online classes via MS Teams), whilst others will be delivered fully online. Please check individual modules for details.
At the end of each semester long module, there will be two in-class assessments: Reading & Writing and an Oral Assessment.
Please note: KLS assessments cannot be re-scheduled.
Please also note: a minimum of 10 students is required in order for a course to run. Should any course not recruit enough students, it will be cancelled.
This course is for absolute beginners. It aims to give students a basic knowledge of reading, listening, spoken and written skills in a dynamic and communicative way, through individual, pair and group work and studio-based and authentic texts. The focus is on accuracy as well as communication.
Method of delivery: There are two groups in Level 1: Group One will be face to face and Group Two will be delivered entirely online (real-time interactive virtual classes via MS Teams).
This module is designed to provide near-beginners with the foreign language skills to enable them to interact satisfactorily in survival situations and social encounters in the foreign country and to be aware of related aspects of the foreign culture and environment.
This course is designed to develop the language competency already acquired by students. It focuses on developing the levels of communication in all four skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing). Students will improve and consolidate the knowledge of grammar and vocabulary acquired previously. The module also engages with aspects of the language's culture and society as it aims to provide students with a wider context for language learning.
