Korean 3 (LL2C5)



This module is offered to students who have successfully completed LL2C4 Korean Accelerated Beginners or equivalent or those with good equivalent working knowledge of Korean (A1+/A2 of the CEFR - Common European Framework of Reference).

Main Objectives

This module aims to enable students:

  • To understand and produce language on topics which are familiar or of personal interest
  • To work towards or achieve A2+ standard of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference)

30 CREDITS, also available for 24 CREDITS

Teaching and Learning

Two weekly blended sessions for 21 weeks, organised as:

  • two two-hour synchronous face-to-face classes

  • homework & independent study

If health & safety restrictions are required, teaching may move online. 

Students are reminded that 1 credit = 10 hours of study, therefore for a 30 credit module, the minimum expected amount of study is 300 hours, which averages over 10 hours per week. A substantial amount of independent study is therefore required. Students can make use of Moodle to facilitate this.


Term 1: one interim test (10%)

Term 3: one reading/writing test (50%) + one speaking test (40%)
