This course at SOAS Language Centre in London aims to consolidate the basis of Korean grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation covered in the first year beginners course; coverage of more complex structures and vocabulary; emphasis on spoken communication and listening and reading comprehension.

Method

The course is taught in English and Korean  and includes coverage of the four skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing and a good balance between understanding the systems of Korean grammar and vocabulary, developing the skills of comprehending and producing Korean in speech and writing, guided practice in language usage and use and authentic communicative activities.

This will be achieved through 20 hours of blended learning: this is composed of 15 hours of online structured lessons with the teacher.
