The KCC has just opened registration for the next round of Korean language classes for beginners. The first season was two times oversubscribed, so here’s the opportunity for those who missed out last time round.
In the second season, the beginners’ classes are Saturday mornings at 11am. Those who are currently in the beginners’ class can, if they want, graduate on to the next set of classes, keeping the Wednesday 6:30pm slot.
From the KCC Website:
The Korean Cultural Centre UK continues its Korean Language Course. The Sejong Institute is kindly supported by the National Institute of the Korean Language in Korea.
• Beginners 1
– A new Beginners 1 course will start on 27th September 2008 and run every Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm for 11 weeks at the Centre.
– Number of students: 24
– No level test needs.
• Beginners 2
– This course is the continuation of the previous Beginners 1 course and will start on 1st October 2008, every Wednesday from 6.30 to 8.30 pm at the Centre.
– Number of students: 24 (students who have completed Beginners 1 will be given priority; we expect there to be 8-10 places for new students).
– Applicants who have not studied at the Centre before must be able to read and write hangul and must have knowledge of basic Korean sentence patterns including present and past tense. In order to complete the application process, applicants who have not studied at the Centre before will need to take a level test via e-mail.
The students will receive 4 course books designed to develop writing, listening, speaking, and reading skills. Additional materials for self-study will be given to the students during the course.
The course is highly recommended. I’m never going to be fluent in Korean, but going back to school is quite fun, and a very pleasant change from work.
