The Center for Language Studies offers Beginning Korean, starting in Summer 2023. The courses cover the first and second semesters of college-level Korean language. The program is designed to introduce students to writing, reading and speaking basic Korean, as well as to deepening student understanding of Korean culture.
Activities throughout the program, such as discussion time, special cultural events, the Korean dinner, Korean films, Culture Day, and student talent show, help to immerse students in their learning.
The program makes use of the Korean communities of Chicago and its suburbs to pursue cultural activities to complement the campus experience.
