This course is a continuation of Korean 1. It includes spoken and written Korean dialogues, grammatical explanations and vocabulary building exercises and uses the Hangul alphabet.
Learning Korean as a second language will enable you to develop knowledge and skills you will need in order to communicate in Korean in a variety of contexts. This course is aimed at helping each student attain proficiency in the four language skill areas: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. You will also be introduced to the basics of Korean culture.

I am originally from South Korea, where I obtained Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Education degrees. I moved to Calgary with my family in 2007 and began working as a Korean instructor for the Calgary Board of Education shortly thereafter. I’ve taught Korean at the University of Calgary Continuing Education department since 2013.
While living in Korea, I taught English to Koreans at a secondary school, so I have a good sense of the differences between the two languages and this helps inform my practice. My lessons are based around teaching common expressions, useful vocabulary, and helpful phrases a person might need should they visit Korea. With the growing popularity of Korean food, music and movies, I also teach about the cultural aspects of the country. It is a great thrill teaching Korean language to others and helping to introduce students to this dynamic and unique country.
