Elementary Korean I

Course Number: EALK 10001
Instructor: Hana Kang

This is the beginning course of the sequence of two three-credit courses, a sequence that covers the same materials as First Year Korean I. It is offered only in the spring semester. This elementary course is designed for students who have no prior knowledge in Korean and provides a solid foundation in modern Korean starting from Korean alphabet Hangul. Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of listening, speaking, reading, and writing of basic Korean. In addition, students will be exposed to everyday life contexts likely to be encountered in contemporary Korean society.
