This class uses interactive exercises to improve conversational skills through grammatical accuracy and situational drills.

This course is to familiarize students with different grammar patterns and words both for spoken and written registers. Students will get chances to expose themselves to various linguistic expressions and also to have better awareness about the language and culture of Korea. In addition to the textbook, the instructor will occasionally provide course materials and supplementary notes as needed. Most instructions will be given in Korean in order to create an immersive language-learning environment for the students. Since this is the most advanced class offered by the Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles, students are encouraged to repeat to enroll in the course as many terms as they want. The course contents will slightly vary each term.
