Korean Language Program for Adults

We offer various level classes suited for adult learners ranging from those with no previous experience, to those with significant experience, to those with a Korean heritage background. Each class is 90 minutes for 10 weeks. We also offer a weekly optional FREE instructor led supplemental class every. This means, students have double the amount of learning and practice opportunities! In addition, we provide our students with additional study tools and resources to help in their journey.

Population(s) Served

The Korean American Center will host a summer high school immersion program for heritage language learners. The program will be designed to build comprehensive language skills and improve students’ knowledge of Korean through classroom immersion and will be based on the World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages. The program will be designed for Korean heritage learners going into the 9th through 12 grades in the fall of 2017. These students possess varying degrees of language proficiency from novice to intermediate, will gain literacy; expand their reading skills and comprehension, and increase their speaking and listening skills. This program will focus on students being able to:

1) experience Korean language immersion in the classroom
2) communicate in Korean in real-world circumstances,
3) use vocabulary learned from real-world contexts,
understand impact traditional culture and values has on the language.
4) foster an appreciation of their Korean cultural heritage and instill a sense of pride in their dual heritage.
