ISSS Survival Korean Program

2016.03.22 POSTECH IR ISSS Events

ISSS Survival Korean Program, coordinated by International Relations, will provide all international members of POSTECH with an opportunity to learn essential Korean phrases and develop language skills required to survive in Korea. This program will be differentiated from the Korean class provided by POSTECH Language Education Center in that, rather than focusing on learning the materials from the textbook, it will encourage its students to speak up by practicing conversational activities such as role-playing. After learning the materials inside the classroom, occasional class trips will be arranged where you will be given the opportunities to practice what you have previously learned during classes.
