Asia Society at Home
Asia Society Texas Center, in partnership with the Houston Korean Education Center, is pleased to offer hybrid Korean Language Level I classes for adults who would like to learn the Korean language at a beginner level.
The weekly classes will take place entirely online from July until September. Starting on September 20 and 21, the classes will switch to an in-person format at Asia Society. The switch to in-person classes is subject to change pending local and state safety guidelines for in-person gatherings. Please review Asia Society's current safety guidelines here.
The Korean Level I Class is an introduction to Korean through simple conversations and culture. Students will engage in basic dialogue exchanges and write short sentences, which will enhance listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. The course is designed to build a foundation in the Korean language by including everyday oral communication and interactive activities emphasizing pronunciation, vocabulary, and expressions. Students will also learn the skills to read and decode the Korean alphabet.
Culture is an integral part of the curriculum. In addition to language skills, students will develop an appreciation and understanding of Korean customs, culture, philosophy, and history.
Students must also purchase their own textbook. Information about the textbook can be found here.
