Quarter Taken: Winter 2020 Submitted March 31, 2020 Grade Received: A+

최 선생님! She is a very sweet and very giggly teacher, she's so cute! She always has a smile on her face and she's very approachable! This was my first time taking her and since her last review on here was from 2017, I was a little nervous but fret not, she's still as amazing as she was since the first review was posted!

I took 임 선생님 for Korean 1 so I don't know how similar the structure for 최 선생님's Korean 2 class is compared to her Korean 1 class, but there's a vocab quiz every lecture beginning the second week of the course, there are two lesson tests and one cumulative final, two in-class writing assignments and there are two oral tests.

The three tests are pretty much the same as Korean 1 test reviews--she uploads the test format and possible questions she may ask on CCLE so if you just go by that, you'll be good (she's not sneaky/tricky)!
The first oral test is a video dub that you do with a partner and the second oral test is a video dub you do by yourself--these are both submitted via CCLE so you don't have to present them!
The writing assignments are based off of two essay prompts from the workbook, but they're alright since you just have to write a minimum of 10-13 sentences and the TAs hold in-class writing workshops so they can help you with organizing it/grammar. Homework assignments are still from the workbook and you turn the packet in during discussion.

The hardest part of this class is the honorifics introduced and 최 선생님 knows this, but it can't be helped ;-; Apart from the honorifics, the course was very easy going and both 최 선생님 and her TAs were very helpful and understanding so if you are struggling, I really recommend going to their office hours!

Jane Choi is a wonderful teacher. My TA, Jin Aeng Choi, was amazing as well. The course is similar to Korean 1, but the material becomes more difficult with honorifics and such in the second half of the course. If you want to know about the course structure, read some of the Korean 1 reviews for Jane Choi, as this course is structured in basically the same way. Both the professor and my TA were very helpful, approachable and funny. Jane is always happy to have you at office hours. Most students don't go, which is a huge mistake. Most of the students who struggled with this class seemed to have slacked off and crammed before the exams. I had this professor/TA for Korean 1 and I am currently taking Korean 3 with them. If you ever have a chance to take a course taught by either of them, don't pass up the opportunity!
