This course is taught in Korean and English. Our programme aims to develop the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as cultural awareness. It provides a good balance between understanding the culture, vocabulary, writing system (characters) and grammar structures of the Korean language and enhancing communication and interaction. It supports comprehensive and productive skills in speech and writing through authentic based activities and guided practice in the use of Korean language. Students will be encouraged to seek opportunities to learn and practise the four skills outside the classroom taking advantage of learning resources provided by tutors and the programme. The group size is limited to 16 students and planned to allow intensive interactive practice with individual feedback and advice on progress.
Upon completing the Upper-intermediate level (4), you can progress onto the Advanced level (5). If you are interested in attending an Advanced course please email Languages at Leicester at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
