A Resource for Korean Grammar Instruction

By Mee-Jeong Park and Sung-Ock Sohn; Series edited by Ho-min Sohn
University of Hawai‘i Press

This book accompanies KLEAR’s Integrated Korean text series. It contains nearly 1,000 activities on 160 of the most commonly used grammar patterns for beginning and intermediate levels, all sorted by alphabetical order, as well as topics for comprehensive grammar instruction using an interactive approach. Nearly 40 practical activities and lesson ideas for advanced levels are also included. These activities are sorted by skill orientation (e.g., speaking-oriented, reading-oriented, etc.), which will allow them to be used with any Korean-language textbook published in the U.S., Korea, or elsewhere.
Instructors who teach Korean as a foreign language in colleges, secondary schools, and community schools and even as private tutors will welcome the easy-to-use grammar activities, which provide practical guidelines for both new and experienced teachers. These lessons reflect the current trend among Korean-language learners in U.S. universities, where, traditionally, primary learners were students of Korean heritage. In recent years, the number of non-heritage learners has increased and thus, to meet their needs, activities with different degrees of difficulty are provided for each grammar pattern and topic enabling instructors to select those most suitable to their students’ needs.
A Resource for Korean Grammar Instruction is divided into two main parts: 1) activities by forms for beginning and intermediate levels; and 2) activities by skill for more advanced levels. The first part includes greetings and Hangul, sentence endings, clausal endings, other suffixes, particles, and more. The second covers vocabulary-oriented activities, speaking/listening activities, reading-oriented activities, and writing-oriented activities. Supplementary instructional materials such as Power Point presentations, video clips, photos and images, and sample quizzes are available free for download at www.kleartextbook.com under the Instructor section after a simple login.
