Skip to 1 minute and 0 seconds Bae: Intermediate Korean is a continuation of Introduction to Korean course, and we organized the course so that you can learn to make recommendations about food and weather, share news to others, express feelings and empathize, discuss current trends, and introduce special days. In this course, we’ve selected some of the most widely used grammatical expressions for each of the different topics and objectives covered in each lesson. We will practice constructing simple sentences by using those expressions in conjunction with newly learned vocabularies. We’ve also structured the course in a way that you’ll be engaging in a useful dialogue using the vocabularies and grammar learned from role-plays. Prof.
Skip to 1 minute and 57 seconds Lee: Lastly, similar to what we had done previously, we prepared a section where we introduce different aspects of Korean culture accompanying each week’s theme. We hope that you will engage in conversations where you can share your thoughts on these topics and compare to your own home country or hometown. We hope that you take the opportunity to talk about Korean culture and communicate with people around the world as you learn Korean language. We hope you enjoy the course. Prof. Lee & Prof.
