Speak and Write Korean: Basic Concepts of the Korean Language and Uniqueness of the Writing System
Join us for a three part Korean Language Series!
Are you familiar with any Korean products such as Kimchi, bulgogi, or Korean media such as Parasite or Gangnam style? Since the DMV area has the third largest Koreatown in the U.S. after Los Angeles and New York, you probably have experienced Korean culture or people. How about the Korean language and its writing system? Korean is the seventh most spoken language in the United States and the most spoken world language in Virginia after English and Spanish. This workshop invites participation from individuals with interests in the Korean language and language education. This three-lecture series will explore the Korean language ranging from its historical background, the importance of Korean language education, and its current language status in the United States, to Korean-English bilingual and biliteracy development. This workshop will not only help expose participants to basic concepts of the Korean language but also provide them further information on diverse aspects of the language and its education.
