“My Journey to South Korea” serves as the theme for the 2018 UW-Madison STARTALK Korean Language & Culture Academy. We will recruit 35 high school students with no or very little prior experience with Korean with the objective of them reaching a Novice Mid to Novice High level of proficiency by the programs’ end. Learning objectives include developing communicative competencies in contexts of travel, family, food, weather and popular culture while exploring Korean cultural practices, products and perspectives. The program will meet for five hours per day, Monday-Friday, over four weeks, for a total of 100 instructional hours.
