Course objectives
K402/502 is the second semester of Fourth Year Korean, Advanced 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 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:
Integrated Korean: Advanced-Intermediate 2

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%
Participation: 5%
Chapter Quizzes: 15%
Homework Assignments: 10%
Midterm: Feb. 25, Monday 15%
Vocabulary Quizzes 5%
Dication Quizzes 5%
Oral performances and presentations: 5%
Oral Final Exam: 10%
Written Final Exam:12:20-2:20 May 3 (Friday) 20%

*More than 5 absences will result in one grade down, and another grade scale down for every 5 absences thereafter from the actual score. No excuses are allowed unless a written proof of inevitable circumstances (e.g. doctor's notes, police reports, parents' notes, performance schedule, job interview schedule, etc.). In any circumstances, no more than 5 excuses will be granted.

You will be granted 4days of attendance extra-credits if your attendance score is 100% at the end of the semester. However, the number of excused absences will be dedected from 4.

There will be no makeup exam unless provided with a written proof for a justifiable reason. Any make up exam or assignment must be completed within a week from the day when the student resumes to the class.

Homeworks should be submitted in the dropbox of Oncourse before the class of the day it is scheduled due. Late homework will have 10% less of the maximum for each day. Any late homework should be submitted within a week from the due date. Due dates should be strictly observed even when you are absent from the class unless it is an extra-ordinarily emergent situation (injured, seriously ill, accident, etc.). If you know you will be absent on a certain day, submit your homework in advance.
