The King Sejong Institute Foundation will be offering additional courses in the Cyber Korean Language Program.
The King Sejong Institute Foundation (KSIF, President: Kang Hyounhwa) announced its plans to offer new courses in the Cyber Korean Language Program starting on March 2 and 15. Cyber Korean Language Program is an online educational program designed to allow overseas learners to continue their studies despite KSI closures.
<Cyber Korean Courses - Introduction> and <Cyber Korean Courses - Intermediate 1> will be launched on March 2, while <Cyber Korean Courses - Beginner> will begin to be available in ten languages. On March 15, <Cyber Korean Courses - intermediate 2> will be unveiled.
▲ Cyber Korean Language Program Structure
In <Cyber Korean Courses - Introduction>, the consonants and vowels of Hangeul (Korean alphabet) will be taught to those learning
Korea for the first time, in addition to focusing on basic rules and skills. The course will be offered in ten languages: Korean, English,
Vietnamese, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indonesian, Spanish, and Portuguese. Classes will be taught by instructors who speak
the local language, which should make it easy for learners to understand instructions.
<Cyber Korean Courses - Beginner>, a service that began in 2020, will be offered in six more languages (Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indonesian, Spanish, and Portuguese) in addition to the existing four (Korean, English, Vietnamese, and Russian).
Another course that will be launched this month is <Cyber Korean Courses - Intermediate>, which has been designed specifically to suit the online platform and is based on the Standard Korean Language Curriculum. Learners will be able to acquire new vocabulary and grammar and be given a diverse range of practice exercises and assignments to improve their listening, speaking, reading comprehension, and writing skills.
The educational materials for each course will be made available to facilitate learning. <Cyber Korean Courses - Introduction>, for instance, will consist of online video lectures and auxiliary learning materials that learners can use at home, while textbooks will be provided to those who sign up for <Cyber Korean Courses - Beginner> or <Cyber Korean Courses - Intermediate>. Video lectures and auxiliary learning materials are available to everyone on the Online King Sejong Institute (www.iksi.or.kr).
