Online Intermediate College Korean is a web-based online courseware based on Intermediate College Korean (University of California Press, 2002)
Each lesson is composed of a dialogue, a short narrative, vocabulary, grammar notes, and exercises.
I have always know about the online Korean learning resource – Online Intermediate College Korean
but I just never had the energy to even bother taking a second look at it, I regret that but now I don’t have a lot of time still but I have decided to look the whole thing over by doing all the lessons and then giving a review on it here on the blog (: hopefully some of you readers will find the information useful in your self-study environment.
Looking at it I really like the set-up with the reading dialogue, vocabulary, and grammar notes I see there is audio but I haven’t clicked it yet when I get round to that I will talk about it another time. Makes me wonder about the book form haha ^^ what I have noticed is the term/ or rather level of “Intermediate” is misinterpreted because I don’t see it as an intermediate resource but more as a Beginner resource! And I actually suck haha so if I feel like on the first lesson its a little simple then you know its not that hard.
Yeah some words are a little “Damn where did you pop up from?” but most are easily understood via context and common sense, not that Korean allows us to understand with common sense much :/
The Plan. (guideline)
There are 27 lessons in the online version, and I have limited time at the moment with studying for exams, but, I put it that I would do 3 lessons a day (or more if time allows) and I will be done with all lessons in 9 days! I will give it 10 for extra reviews of lessons and what-not haha you never know what can happen when you plan ahead, in fact nothing ever goes to plan this is more of a “guideline” of what I would like to happen xD
As you can see the lessons are set up just like “real” chapters in a book and because I adore structure in learning I’m not going to pick what sounds/seems interesting but actually do it from the beginning – Lesson 2 today because I did Lesson 1 the whooooole day yesterday hehe but that all belongs in a different post than this one.
Back on topic, I expect the lessons to get harder because I took a sneak peak at Lesson 7 (강원도와 신사임당) and a hint of how hard I think it will be, I didn’t understand a word of the title haha I am trying to think what it may be (without looking in the dictionary) but so far nothing. Will have to wait till I get there (: very exciting stuff. Its amazing how exhilarating the thought of learning can be, makes me get butterflies all over (;
I won’t blog my progress of every lesson I go through on this online course (^^) but I will try my best to share anything interesting I come across while I am learning, also its good for understanding more and revision, and as always I won’t just be using one resource this is just one of the things I will use don’t forget my handy Korean Grammar Dictionary , Korean Grammar In Use, and many, many other online resources that are available ^^
Ohh I finished my old notebook yesterday mid-way on the lessons and started a new notebook (well.) something was in the new notebook but still its got about 70pages unused I can’t wait hehe xD new notebooks always make studying a bit more exciting like you progress through the notebooks …:D
