Higher learning than intermediate, students learn to read, write, speak, listen, and a deeper understanding of Korean history and culture. This level can engage in sophisticated conversations, read newspapers or magazines, write essays, and understand introductory college-level courses.
At the highest level, students can fully understand accelerated college-level courses and teach Korean to other students in lower level classes. Comprehending advanced literature, students will gain a profound and a full understanding of the language, culture, and traditions. Students also become bilingual, making them proficient in interpretations and translations in both English and Korean.
