4.     Catalogue course description
    Vocabulary, grammar, discourse, pronunciation and culture. First course for returned missionaries.


5.     Extended course description
  Welcome to your first intermediate Korean course! Korea 301 will involve you in learning activities that will round
out your communicative skills by adding to your store of vocabulary items and grammatical affixes and by enhancing
your basic language skills – with emphasis on reading and speaking. The course also will promote listening and writing
and will deepen your understanding of Korean culture. Testing reveals that the average returned missionary
mispronounces over 40% of all consonants, so 301 also will stress phonology.


6.     Course purpose
   The mission of Brigham Young University is to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life. BYU's
educational aims are to be spiritually strengthening, intellectually enlarging, and character building, leading to lifelong
learning and service. Brigham Young said: "We might ask when we shall cease to learn .... We shall never cease to learn,
unless we apostatize from the religion of Jesus Christ."
   The mission of the Korean Section of the Asian and Near Eastern Languages Department is to provide an environment
in which the learner can prepare for the lifelong task of learning of Korean. Korean falls outside the Indo-European family
of languages to which English belongs, so its writing system and the culture in which it flourishes vary sharply from
American equivalents and challenges any program and any student.
   The purpose of Korea 301 is to provide a learning environment in which communication in Korean rules supreme,
where interactive learning activities provide opportunity for learners to internalize the reading, speaking, hearing, and
writing that will bring the student up to full parity with peers in universities around the United States.
   The mission of the Korea 301 student is to exercise primary responsibility for his or her performance in Korean. The
student should set personal language goals and exploit course resources to help him or her achieve these goals as part of a
lifelong quest to acquire Korean in the context of Korea's unique culture.


                                                                                                                       -1-
7.    Course outcomes
  At the end of Korea 301, the student will --
   Engage in discourse on topics such as the modern era, Korean cultural treasures, story-telling, short stories, books,
   and Korea through foreigners' eyes using --
      o oral communication sufficient to handle most social and uncomplicated language situations
      o cultural contextuality that will not annoy a majority of native speakers
      o dozens of new grammatical affixes and vocabulary items
      o pronunciation of basic consonants that are about 80% acceptable for a foreign speaker of Korean
      o basic sound adjustments that are about 70% acceptable for a foreign speaker of Korean


8.    The student's personal learning goals for Korea 301
  Set your own goals for Korea 301. Refer to them frequently, and update them as you progress.

9.    Classroom procedure
   The Korean Section subscribes to the principles of CLT (communicative language teaching), the foreign-language
teaching method prevailing in the United States. We use the "Fact-Act" approach. In a Fact class, an instructor provides
brief explanations of phonetics, phonology, vocabulary, grammar, culture, and hanja. In an Act class, a native Korean
speaker facilitates student production of Korean, using as grist information covered in the Fact classes.
    Rules of the road in the communicative classroom:
    1. Only you can motivate yourself to be fluent in Korean and it's a life-long job.
    2. View the classroom as a cooperative one, not a competitive one.
    3. View the classroom as a little Korea, where you immerse yourself in the culture and language.
    4. Maintain a language journal containing alphabetical lists of course vocabulary and grammar. Coordinate this
        with a forthcoming list of vocabulary and grammar based on frequency of use.
    5. You learn rules of Korean in FACT class; you produce real Korean in ACT class.
    6. Ask grammar questions of the FACT teacher but not the ACT teacher.
    7. The FACT teacher may speak English to you; the ACT teacher may not.
    8. Much of your grade will be based on the Korean you produce in discourse with other students in ACT classes.
    9. Memorize Conversation 1 and 2 from each Sohn chapter before the FACT classes on that chapter.
    10. Know the grammar and vocabulary from each Sohn chapter before pertinent ACT classes on that chapter.
    11. Virtually memorize the main reading and any other conversations from each Sohn chapter.
    12. Memorize aurally, by listening to audio files of your textbook. (See links 1 and 2 below.)
    13. Sit in different places each ACT class to facilitate language production with different discourse partners.
    14. Change your discourse partner by switching desks once during each ACT class.
    15. Rearrange the desks before ACT class, so the teacher can circulate and monitor your Korean.
    16. Place backpacks so they will not impede the instructor's circulation among desks.

10.    Lab procedure
   Any language should be learned aurally, but this is especially true of Korean because of its difficult sound system.
As the Roman alphabet falls far short of representing English sounds, so han'gŭl falls far short of representing actual
Korean pronunciation. You will listen to a lot of Korean online and may use your own computer or those in the language
lab. All of Sohn's lessons are included in audio files at websites of the University of Hawaii and Indiana University.
(See links 1 and 2 below.) The less you study your textbooks in paper and the more you study them aurally, the more
your Korean will improve.
                                                                                                                           -2-
The following aural study procedure will return maximum benefits.
      1. Listen to the target passage without first referring to the book.
      2. Repeat aloud each recorded sentence in turn without referring to the book.
      3. Listen to the passage again without referring to the book, making sure you understand completely.

11.    Assessment
   The purpose of assessment in BYU's Korean-language classroom is to provide an opportunity for learners to determine
whether they are achieving course goals and personal objectives. Assessment is part of the learning process, a motivator
to learn, and a gauge of learning achievement. We encourage our students to see assessment as an aid to their personal
fluency goals and solicit from them recommendations on what should be assessed.
   We must record grades at university, and we give significant weight (30%) to your day-to-day, ACT-class production of
Korean. Since one person can not produce language alone, the student will want to motivate him or herself to
communicate in Korean easily and constantly with classmates, instructors, and any and all Korean speakers. Do not hold
back because you believe your Korean to be inaccurate, just talk and talk some more, and read and read some more.
      Assessment      %      Remarks
                             Language production evaluation is done in each Act class as students produce Korean.
     Act Score      25       You will be evaluated on oral/aural, reading/writing, and pronunciation aspects of the
                             language.
     Chapter                 There will be a quiz on each chapter from Sohn. The quizzes will include vocabulary,
                    30
     Quizzes                 Chinese characters, grammar, pronunciation and reading.
     Midterm
                    15       There will be a formal written exam which is based on learning in classes and the text.
     Exam
     Final Exam 15           Same as Midterm Exam.
     Homework       15       You will have writing homework assignments after certain classes. These assignments are
                             graded according to the completeness, accuracy, and timeliness.
     Study-buddy 2           See 13. Study-buddy credit

                A = 94-100 A- = 90-93 B+ = 87-89 B = 84-86 B- = 80-83 C+ = 77-79
                C = 74-76 C- = 70-73 D+ = 67-69 D = 64-66 D- = 60-63 E = 59 and below


12.     Attendance, attitude, late work, and missed tests
  Students are permitted two absences for illness or personal reasons but repeated absences will lead to a lower grade.
Contact the instructor or TA by email or phone call before the class that you are to miss to explain your absence. Written
assignments are due at the beginning of class and late assignments may be penalized one letter grade per late day.
Written quizzes and tests may not be made up except for unusual situations – ask. It is not possible to make up assessment
based on oral production of Korean in ACT classes. A student who misses a quiz or test will be assigned the lowest grade
given on that quiz or test.

13.     Study-buddy credit
   We ask our students to participate in the Study Buddy program, in which you meet with a native speaker of Korean
once a week for an hour and speak Korean for half an hour and English for half an hour. You will receive extra credit for
this equivalent to 2% of the course grade. You will need to submit a study-buddy report filled out and signed by your
study-buddy on the last day of class in order to receive credit. Get started on the study-buddy program by attending
orientation at the beginning of each semester.

         Preventing sexual harassment: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits gender discrimination against any participant in
an educational program or activity that receives federal funds. The act is intended to eliminate gender discrimination in education. Title IX covers
discrimination in programs, admissions, activities, and student-to-student sexual harassment. BYU's policy against sexual harassment extends not
only to employees of the University but to students as well. If you encounter unlawful sexual harassment or gender-based discrimination, please
talk to your professor; contact the Equal Employment Office at 422-5895 or 367-5689 (24-hours); or contact the Honor Code Office at 422-2847.
[See BYU's Equal Employment Opportunity page at http://www.byu.edu/hr/eeo/info.html].
         Students with disabilities: BYU is committed to providing a working and learning atmosphere that reasonably accommodates qualified
persons with disabilities. [See BYU's Equal Employment Opportunity page at http://www.byu.edu/hr/eeo/info.html].
         BYU honor code: Brigham Young University exists to provide an education in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and principles of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That atmosphere is created and preserved through commitment to conduct that reflects those ideals
and principles. Members of the faculty, administration, staff, and student body at BYU are selected and retained from among individuals who
voluntarily live the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Observance of such is a specific condition of employment and admission. Those
individuals who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are also expected to maintain the same standards of conduct,
except church attendance. All who represent BYU are to maintain the highest standards of honor, integrity, morality, and consideration of others in
personal behavior. By accepting appointment on the faculty, continuing in employment, or continuing class enrollment, individuals evidence their
commitment to observe the Honor Code standards approved by the Board of Trustees “at all times and . . . in all places” (Mosiah 18:9). [See the
full honor code at http://www.byu.edu/honorcode/honor_code.htm].
