About This Course

Published 10/2016 English

Course Description

That you have foundations in some foreign languages actually means that you should be able to form expressions with basic words on your own and speak them in those languages. This course has been designed to help you have sufficient practice through an organized and systematic approach so that you can form and speak basic Korean expressions on your own. 


Build up Korean Foundations through an Organized Practice

  • 56 Lectures, 56 Practices and 56 Quizzes
  • Talking Head & Screen Cast Videos
  • Practice with Only a Few Carefully Selected Words
  • No Dialouge Based
  • Learn from the Two Native Korean Instructors


Practice Makes Perfect

The reason why it's difficult to build up foundations through the traditional language courses is they mainly focus on the delivery of linguistic knowledge rather than practice. That's why most people from countries such as Korea, China and Japan don't speak English well even though they are taught English in public education. This course, therefore, focuses much on organized and systematic practice.

You will learn only a few selected words from this course. Learning too many words in a foundation course is not only frustrating but also unnecessary to beginners. What you need in order to build up foundations in Korean is not the words but a skill to form an expression with a few selected words. 


Contents and Overview

This course has been designed to simplify your learning process as much as possible. The goal of this course is to make you form and speak Korean expressions with only a few selected words on your own. You'll learn how to form Korean expressions with the selected words which include 12 verbs, 5 nouns, 6 pronouns, 6 adjectives, 37 adverbs and 7 conjunctions. After each lecture dealing with grammatical stuff, you'll practice what you will have learned with Sookie, a Korean native instructor. Then you'll be given a quiz on the lecture so that you can refresh you memory of what you learned. By the end of this course, you will be able to form and speak most Korean expressions like you speak in English.

    Instructor Biography

    Danny Lin, Instruction Designer

    Summary

    I am a professional instruction designer. I'm very interested in designing instruction in the context of e-Learning. I believe education should be kind to students. Students shouldn't be frustrated while learning. Whether learning can be fun or frustrating depends on how it is designed. 


    Experience

    I started my career as a software engineer. Then I got interested in education because I felt it was the most productive among any other fields. Then I decided to be an educator for my whole life. Now I have been designing instruction and instructing students for more than 8 years. I am very skillful at creating a good learning experience for students. Now I am running Nuts & Bolts, the company providing e-Learning contents.


    Education

    - Bachelor Degree in Computer Engineering at Ajou University

    - Master Degree in Education Technology at Seoul National University
