Description

Interdisciplinary Elective Course
This language elective course is based on Project-Based Language Teaching. Students are required to take the initiative in learning and participate in classroom activities and discussions. This course is composed of two parts. During the first few weeks, students will read newspaper articles and watch media materials (such as Korean TV news clips), then discuss the materials in class. Students will be able to investigate the features of Korean society and its current issues during this progress. During the second half of the semester, students are required to work on a group project. Each group will select a topic regarding Korean society that they want to examine further and make a TV news report on it. The group project is designed to help students to acquire skills in independent learning, critical thinking and teamwork.
