It also aims to enable students to understand more complex speech and written texts compared to those in Korean III. By the end of the course, students will be able to engage in conversations on a wide range of topics. They will also have the ability to understand and summarize the main points from Korean texts drawn from various sources. In addition, students will be able to write texts to express their opinions about their daily life and personal experience. The course prepares students for the upper intermediate-level (Level 4) Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK).
