In order to acknowledge achievements and monitor progress, Korean language program needs a realistic and meaningful system for grading performance. In general, I award "A" grade to acknowledge achievements that go beyond specified course requirements and criteria. By its nature, this type of performance cannot always be spelled out explicitly in advance. As are reserved for special efforts that exceeds expectations by demonstrating exceptional linguistic abilities, skills, development, commitment, or creativity. In this course, B, C, and D grades are awarded for praiseworthy, above average performance, satisfactory, average performance, and minimum passing performance, respectively. Those who do not satisfy the minimum course standard will be assigned F grades.

             A- = 90 - 92.9 %                   A = 93 - 100 %
             B- = 80 - 82.9 %                   B = 83 - 86.9 %                          B+ = 87 - 89.9 %
             C- = 70 - 79.9 %                   C = 73 - 76.9 %                          C+ = 77 - 79.9 %
             D- = 60 - 69.9 %                   D = 63 - 66.9 %                          D+ = 67 - 69.9 %  
             F = 0 - 59.9 %
   
STUDENTS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THEY MUST BE PLACED INTO APPROPRIATE LEVELS ON THE BASIS OF THE INSTRUCTOR’S EVALUATION.

Students in this course are assumed to have previous knowledge of Korean, which was taught in the Korean 2A, 2B, 2C and 3A courses. Students in this course will learn mid-advanced level skills in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing in Korean, as well as expand their cultural understanding. Upon completion of this course, students are expected to acquire and use more vocabularies, expressions and sentence structures and to have a good command of Korean in formal situations. Students are expected to read and understand daily newspapers and daily news broadcasts. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to do the following in Korean:

Speaking: Students are able to communicate with accuracy and fluency in order to participate fully and effectively in conversations on a variety of topics in formal and informal settings from both concrete and abstract perspectives. They discuss their interests and special fields of competence, explain complex matters in detail, and provide lengthy and coherent narrations, all with ease, fluency, and accuracy. They present their opinions on a number of issues of interest to them, and provide structured arguments to support these opinions.
Listening: Students are able to understand speech in a standard dialect on a wide range of familiar and less familiar topics. They can follow linguistically complex extended discourse. Comprehension is no longer limited to the listener's familiarity with subject matter, but also comes from a command of the language that is supported by a broad vocabulary, an understanding of more complex structures and linguistic experience within the target culture. Students can understand not only what is said, but sometimes what is left unsaid.
Reading: Students are able to understand texts from many genres dealing with a wide range of subjects, both familiar and unfamiliar. Comprehension is no longer limited to the reader's familiarity with subject matter, but also comes from a command of the language that is supported by a broad vocabulary, an understanding of complex structures and knowledge of the target culture. Students at this level can draw inferences from textual and extralinguistic clues.
Writing: Students are able to produce most kinds of formal and informal correspondence, in-depth summaries, reports, and research papers. They demonstrate the ability to explain complex matters, and to present and support opinions by developing cogent arguments and hypotheses. They demonstrate a high degree of control of grammar and syntax, of general vocabulary, of spelling or symbol production, of cohesive devices, and of punctuation.
Pre-Requisite: LTKO 2C or equivalent level of Korean language proficiency
