This introductory Korean course familiarizes students with Hangul (the phonetic system), basic grammar, foundational vocabulary, discourse, reading, and culture. Also, this beginning course helps students build basic language skills—speaking, hearing, reading, and writing—and broaden their understanding of Korean culture and communicate simple ideas in Korean. This course features the Conversation Café, a live virtual classroom where students practice their language skills and participate in one-on-one speaking appointments. This is the first course in a four-part Korean series (KOREA 041, 043, 051, and 053).
