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.

About the Instructor
Chelsea Guerra is an experienced Korean language teacher who has worked with the Houston Korean Education Center for 2 years. She graduated from the University of Florida with a B.A. in Linguistics, as well as a degree and a certification in TESOL. She began learning Korean through a language program with Seoul National University and has continued her Korean language studies for the past 10 years. Earlier this year along with Katarina Pollock and Yujin Kim, she co-authored and published the book Writing Conversational Korean: Book One for Korean language learners. Through the perspective of a non-native Korean speaker, she hopes to provide a unique insight into an English speaker's struggles with understanding and speaking Korean.
