KORN 021 is an intensive Korean course that covers the material from KORN 011
and KORN 012 in an intensive format, designed for novice learners who have
little or no knowledge of Korean.  This course aims to develop a solid
foundation for reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills through
meaningful communicative activities and tasks in cultural context.  Upon
completion of the course, students should be able to handle simple and
elementary needs of daily lives and be able to talk and write about a variety
of topics such as mood and personalities, clothing, weather, illness, Korean
food, etc.  Students will also learn how to use three speech styles (polite
formal, informal, and intimate) appropriately in a given context.  Students
are also expected to obtain the Novice High level of proficiency based on the
ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) proficiency
scale.  During the summer, this course will be given in an online format that
provides a communicative learning environment through Adobe Connect and
Canvas.  Students will be required to view PowerPoint slide shows and do
homework questions in Canvas before each class, and class time will be mostly
spent on communicative activities.  After class, students will practice four
language skills with the online exercises on Canvas, class blogs, and Voice
Thread.  This online course requires acess to a reliable computer with
high-speed internet and good quality headsets with a microphone.  This course
is offered through the Penn Language Center.
