  • The short term program is 3x weeks long and is Monday through Friday for 4x hours per day.  It has 7x levels of difficulty ranging from the Korean language “starter” to “advance” speakers. 

  • The “starter” level objectives are as follows:

  • No knowledge of Korean language is required to participate in this course. Students are introduced to the Korean alphabet--consonants, vowels, suffixes and basic spelling rules.

  • Students are introduced to basic grammatical structures to help students cope with daily real life situations, and are able to write simple sentences.

  • Students will acquire simple conversation skills useful for everyday life.

  • Greeting, introducing, ordering food and making purchases, etc.

  • Because speaking Korean well does not mean you understand the culture this level is designed to give students the basic knowledge of Korean culture and society.

  • This short term program is recommended for MSUB students who have never studied Korean, and want to attend the exchange program at EWHA.  This will help you transition into your semester abroad at EWHA.  The dates of the program fit perfectly with the exchange program dates.  One would arrive approx. one month before the start of the exchange to attend the short term language course.
