Thank you for not giving up on my blog.
In today's post I will talk about the Korean Language course that I took while I was at SNU.As a Korean major student I had to take this course and I had a great time.When you start learning a new language you start with level 1 and the more you study the more you advance in knowledge.The same principle applies to when learning Korean too and most universities in Seoul that I know of teach from level 1 to level 6 and sometimes level 7 or the Academic level.Each course is 10 weeks long and very expensive,around 1500 dollars (not including the Korean book and workbook for which you have to pay yourself and together they cost around 30 dollars).
|I don't like exams!!!|
The tuition fee includes the extra material handed in class by the teachers (we had 2-3 teacher per course and up to 16 students in a class) and trips to the Seoul Art Center,cooking class or other activities that required of us to use our Korean language skills and lets not forget about food.Every time there was a lesson about food or a Korean holiday where we had to try special dishes we ordered food.
When you enroll for a Korean class,unless your knowledge is zero you have to take a test so that the school can establish your level.
We had role plays,3 home works every day,dictation,lots of food and laughter.
The classes were run Monday to Friday,from 9am until 1pm,with 10 minutes break every 50 minutes.
As I mentioned earlier we went to a cooking school and made some yummy Korean food called bulggogi made with beef meet and japche made from sweet potato noodles.
