Upper-Division Baccalaureate 3 Korean Grammar


The course objective is for the students to gain knowledge of Korean Grammar, and to strengthen and maintain their proficiency level to ILR level 2+ or higher in Korean (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). By the end of this course, the students will be able to enhance their higher level lexical, structural, and socio-cultural competencies reflecting grammar. The course seeks to achieve this goal in a manner that differs from typical foundational grammar courses, in that this course does not examine grammatical features in isolation from one another (e.g. spending a day on the one grammar feature past tense without looking at other tenses); instead, this class examines grammar points as smaller systems lodged within a larger system (e.g. examining all verb tenses together to understand how they function as a group).

Learning Outcomes:

  • explain the grammatical structures that are common to Korean language
  • analyze aural and written texts (editorials) and evaluate contextual and implied meaning of texts in relevance to not only FLO topical areas but also literature
  • compare how the various systems of Korean grammar function in relation to one another
  • rephrase and rewrite based on a deeper internal sense for the language, the result of which is a deeper understanding of structure
  • engage in meaningful discourse using critical thinking skills
  • apply and demonstrate learned language skills in real life situations
  • illustrate and apply structural and lexical components, including vocabulary, idiomatic expressions, grammar forms and syntax in relation to FLO topical areas
