KORN3010 – Spoken Korean IIB 86.0

If you've taken the previous courses in Korean, there really isn't much difference between this course and the ones before it. The only difference is that there is that higher expectation of knowing the basics and what was learnt previously. To be quite honest, I found this course a lot easier than its predecessor (KORN2101) although I feel like my review on that course was too kind....

Regardless, I found the assessment both challenging and rewarding. I think the only worrying assessment was the final oral exam but even that was much better than KORN2101's. It's a good way to see how far (or how little) you've come in learning Korean as he asks questions that are related to your Korean learning experience as well as those that are in the textbook - albeit I still find that a flaw in the course.

Of course, there's a reliance on the textbook's powerpoint and learning straight from that which can be a lot to take in and a rush to get through in a normal contact session. However, I find this a suitable course that summarises your Korean skills and prepares you for more advanced studies.
