What do we learn in this course?

“Intermediate Korean“ is a follow-up to Introduction to Korean1, Introduction to Korean2 course.

This course is designed for those who have already completed the beginner-level Korean language course. Before learning in this course, you will need a basic understanding of Korean language sentence structure consisting of subjects, objects, and predicates, as well as rudimentary vocabularies such as basic verbs and adjectives.

This course is approximately six weeks long, with a total of six content lessons. You’ll study the following topics: Food, emotions, weather, news, trends, and special days. In addition to the Korean language, each lesson provides a brief presentation of modern Korean culture related to the weekly topic. By the end of the course, you will be able to enjoy more fluent conversations in Korean.

Introduce yourself!

We understand that learning Korean might be an unfamiliar and difficult experience, but try to free yourself from the pressure and have fun. After each lesson, we encourage you to review the materials you learn and use it in real-life.

Now we also want to hear from you. Join the conversation by sharing your response to the following questions.

To each one of you,
  • Have you taken ‘Introduction to Korean 1, 2’ course?
  • What motivated you to take this course?
  • What kinds of expectations do you have for this course?

Please introduce yourself in the comments section.
