Course objectives
K302 is the second semester of Third Year Korean, 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 various genres of authentic material (some are slightly tailored to fit the level) on various topics. The course is largely content-based and task-based. Particularly focused on will be enhancing ability to advance one's opinion as well as discussing and sharing thoughts, experiences and ideas. Expanding one's vocabulary of more complex and abstract concepts is also a main goal of this course.

 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:
