Course objectives
K301 is the first semester of Third Year Korean at the advanced-Intermediate level. The goal is to equip students with proficiency in all four language skills, speaking, listening, reading, and writing, beyond the intermediate level. The course will deal with short passages on a variety of topics. The course is largely content-based and task-based. Particularly focused on will be enhancing ability to extract main ideas from the main text and to discuss and share thoughts related to them.

 The weekly schedule consists of three parts: pre-lesson activities, main text activities, and post-lesson activities (vocabulary and pattern exercises, writing exercises, further reading activities, etc.)

Course material:
Modern Korean: An Intermediate Reader (MKIR) by Nam-Kil Kim (2000), University of Hawaii Press

 Students are expected to read all the main texts and be prepared for in-class tasks and discussion. Students are also responsible for learning vocabulary and useful expressions.

Students will be evaluated for the final grade based on the following criteria:
Class attendance* 10%
Pparticipation: 5%

* Excessive abssences may result in lowering grade further than the grade earned. More than 3 absences will lower one grade scale and every 3 absences thereafter will lower another grade scale. Absences may be excused if a written proof of inevitable circumstances (e.g. doctor's notes, police reports, parents' notes, performance schedule, job interview schedule, etc.) is provided. In any circumstances, no more than 5 excuses will be granted.

Extra credit will be given for excellent attendance record and participation in the Korean culture events on campus.

Those who have the perfect attendance record (no absence) will get awarded 5 days of Extra credit (a little bit more than1% of the total grade); if your absence is zero due to the excuses granted, the number of excuses will be deducted from the 5 days of extra credit.
