Quarter Taken: Fall 2019 Submitted July 10, 2020 Grade Received: A+

I love this professor! I came into Korean 1 with some background knowledge of Korean, so this class was not very challenging for me, but it was rewarding. Doctor Choi is a wonderful, sweet professor who gives off very friendly, kind vibes. I loved her! She was confident about the material and passionate about our learning and just lovely. Tests in this class were very simple and fair: the final was one page front and back and took about an hour. In addition to lesson tests, there are vocabulary tests which simply test if you can translate words between English and Korean and vice versa, writing tests, and then some oral tests which include a group project. Grading is lenient and the TAs are amazing. If you are considering taking Korean as a foreign language, I definitely recommend it! Korean 1 spends the first two weeks teaching the alphabet and the rest of the weeks teaching vocabulary and grammar. It is definitely the easiest of KOR1-3, but it is a great dive if you're interested in the language.

This course is an easy A. The grading is as below: participation 10%; HW 5%; 6 speaking assignments 3%; 12 alphabet and vocabulary quizzes 12%; 2 oral tests 10%; 2 midterms 30%; 1 in-class writing 5%; final 25%.

You have to show up in all the lectures and discussions for the full participation points because the teacher and TAs distribute sign-up sheets almost every class. The homework is just something time-consuming. It does not help on exams. For the speaking assignments, you are required to record several sentences involving the grammars taught in class. For this part, as long as you complete it, you will get a full score. For the quizzes, however, you need to work very hard to get the 12 points. Quizzes are distributed almost every class. For the oral tests, the first one is an self introduction. The second is a dub where you need to write a script with your friends and record it. For the oral tests, also, you will get a full score as long as you complete it. For the writing, each mistake in your essay will deduct you 2%(out of the 5%) of the points. For the exams, the teacher would post the test format on CCLE. So just review strictly according to the test format and expect a high score.

This is a very easy course as long as you follow the advice and work hard.

Very easy to learn from. Her test were easy, and the final was just like the lesson tests. Very easy if you keep up with your vocab.
