Course description

Learn Korean in Sydney with this beginner’s class.

Whether you want to learn Korean language for business, travel or just to sing along to K-pop, you’ll learn the basics at this informal, practical and interactive course in the Sydney CBD.

This Level 1 course will teach you how to communicate in Korean with simple vocabulary and basic sentences. You will also be introduced to the Korean alphabet, Hang-Geul, and begin to learn how to read and write in Korean.

This course is suitable for:
Students with no previous learning in Korean

Learning objectives

By the end of this Korean Level 1 Class, you will have learned how to:

  • understand the Korean writing system and Korean culture
  • recognise the Han-geul letters and say the alphabet
  • recognise and identify consonants and vowels
  • greet others and introduce yourself
  • say the words for common nationalities and professions
  • ask the name of things in the classroom and other common objects
  • order food and drinks in a bar or restaurant
  • count and use numbers in everyday situations
  • read and write Sino numbers and Korean native numbers
  • talk about the location of a person or a place
  • ask for and tell the time, date, days and months
  • ask what and where questions
  • ask for and give phone numbers
  • interact in a simple way using basic sentences acquired from learning the basic grammar.

The curriculum may be adapted slightly to suit the needs of the class. The topics above will be covered during this course, but not necessarily in the order given.

Textbook for Levels 1 and 2

Please purchase the course textbook and bring it to each class:

New Sogang Korean 1A Student’s Book

The textbook costs approximately $60, including a grammar book and audio CD.

You can purchase the textbook from Abbeys Bookstore (131 York Street, Sydney). It is close to the CBD campus and offers a 10% discount to Sydney Community College students.
