Section 1


The Korean Language Program at University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) offers four levels of Korean from elementary (First Year Korean) to advanced level (Fourth Year Korean). Although there may be slight differences in the main emphasis on specific course objectives among different levels, all courses are designed to develop or improve four language skills- i.e., speaking, listening, reading and writing in students’ performance and competence. In addition, the courses offered in the Korean Language program integrate cultural components into course materials by using authentic texts, audio-visual materials including newspaper articles, dramas, films, documentaries, etc.
