Attention: Registration for these courses will not go through the regular course registration. You can register for these courses at the start of the semester (instructions will be given at the orientation). Please keep in mind that any other courses you may register for can clash with the schedule of the Korean language class.
Introductory Level 1
This class will be taught twice per week for 2 hours. You will learn to read, write, speak and understand basic Korean (Hangeul, 한글). You will learn general language skills like introducing yourself, ordering food, counting, telling time, buying things and making a phone call. This class is thought after 18:00 and starts around halfway of September (fall semester) or March (spring semester). You can earn 3 credits by successfully completing this course. (F – A+ grading)
Introductory Level 2
This class is for students who successfully completed Introductory Level 1 and want to continue studying Korean non-intensively. This class might also be suitable to students who have basic knowledge of Korean already.
Intensive Language Course
This class is taught 5 days per week for 4 hours per day. You will learn to read, write, speak and understand Korean on an intensive level. There are 6 different levels for the intensive Korean language class and you will be assessed to measure your level. Occasionally on Wednesdays cultural excursions are organized for the participating students. For exchange students, only afternoon class (14:00 – 18:00) is available. The program also starts halfway of September (fall semester) or March (spring semester). You can earn 13 credits by successfully completing this course (F – A+ grading).
Due to visa regulations exchange students need to take at least 1 additional course on top of the Intensive Korean Language Course.
