Korean belongs to the Ural-Altaic family of languages and is spoken by approximately 100 million people in South Korea, North Korea, China, Japan, and the US. Due to Korea’s increasing economic and political importance in North-East Asia, Korean is growing increasingly popular around the world as a foreign language. The “Korean Wave” has become an influential global phenomenon since the start of the 21st century, heavily impacting the contemporary cultures, music, film, and television industries, and behavioural aspects of various people throughout the world. Beginner Level 1 is for students who have not studied Korean before. Students will learn to read and write the Korean alphabet, identify common words concerning themselves and their families, read basic vocabulary, ask and answer simple questions in areas of immediate need, and use simple phrases and sentences to describe familiar people and places.
