Korean 4 (LL2C6)



This module is offered to students who have successfully completed LL2C5 Korean 3 module or those with good equivalent working knowledge of Korean.

Main Objectives

This module aims to enable students:

  • To understand ideas in depth and carry out communication accordingly on a range of familiar social topics
  • To facilitate students' self-awareness of strengths and weaknesses in order to improve their learning skills
  • To work towards or achieve B1+ standard of the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference)

30 CREDITS, also available for 24 CREDITS

Teaching and Learning

Weekly blended sessions for 21 weeks, organised as:

  • asynchronous pre-recorded videos: accessible through Moodle, to be studied before each synchronous session

  • a two-hour synchronous session: face-to face on campus

  • 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 2: portfolio (20%)

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