20 Credits AUTUMN

Pre-requisites: EAS2045, EAS2046, EAS2047, EAS2048

Aims/Description: This module is focusing on receptive activities and written productive activities in Korean language at the intermediate high level consolidating the knowledge learned during Korea Year Abroad. This module acts as a transition between the teacher-centred learning required for the acquisition of basic and intermediate language skills, and the autonomous and self-directed learning required at high advanced levels. Translation and functional reading skills are extended, with texts including annotated topical materials. Techniques for tackling unseen materials are developed and advanced grammar is consolidated and expanded. Practical knowledge of roughly 250 Chinese characters is introduced. The target level at the end of this level is roughly equivalent to TOPIK (Test of Proficiency in Korean) intermediate high level/L4 or CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) B2.

Teaching Methods: Seminars, Independent Study
Assessment: Formal Exam, Course work, Mock interview: 15% Presentation: 15%
