Korean Beginner Level 3 *NEW*

Korean belongs to the Ural-Altaic family of languages and is spoken by approximately 100 million people in South Korea, North Korea, China, Japan, and the US. Due to Korea’s increasing economic and political importance in North-East Asia, Korean is growing increasingly popular around the world as a foreign language. The “Korean Wave” has become an influential global phenomenon since the start of the 21st century, heavily impacting the contemporary cultures, music, film, and television industries, and behavioural aspects of various people throughout the world. Korean Beginner Level 3 is for students who have had at least 25 hours of classroom time in the language within the last year, have a basic command of the language, are familiar with everyday expressions, can make very simple sentences and can read all characters. Following the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference, students at this level will learn to identify the highest frequency vocabulary related to areas of most immediate personal relevance, read and talk about very short, simple texts, such as advertisements and short stories, communicate in routine tasks requiring a simple exchange of information on familiar topics, and describe their families, educational backgrounds, and jobs.
