7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I thought our constant practicing of the grammar helped me
Weekly quizzes, practicing Korean in class
The workbook done throughout the whole semester were very useful in aiding us out of class.
continual repetition with grammar points.
The weekly vocab tests
THE DICTATIONS REALLY HELPED WITH THE CLASS GRAMMAR AND VOCABULARY
I felt I learned a lot of Korean, and my skills, particularly speaking, rapidly improved
All of it, including the culture tips, we're extremely useful to me.
Learning vocabulary and grammar.
I think incorporating the Korean culture while learning the language were most valuable. After we talked about how a group of college students arranged meetings in which boys and girls could meet, we did a class activity in which one half of the class had to give our teacher an item like a pencil and the other half of the class picked a pencil and we had to find our partner and practice conversations. I thought that this was very fun and a good way to get a little bit of the experience in the Korean culture.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
I didn't like how little time we had to further explain some of the things, I also wish we learned more about culture
N/A
The dictations honestly didn't help much.
conversation memorization.
I did not enjoy memorizing the conversations. I would have rather had a conversation about a subject.
THE CONVERSATIONS. THEY WERE A WASTE OF TIME BECAUSE ALL WE HAD TO DO WAS MEMORIZE THEM. IT WAS LIKE MEMORIZING SET "DIALOGUES" WHICH CANNOT REALLY BE APPLIED OUTSIDE.
The class could have moved faster and the explanations of grammar were weak and sometimes overly technical sometimes the timing of the tests and homeworks were very strange (i.e. we have a quiz the day after we learn the material) The teacher was great but I felt (having learned Japanese, which has similar grammar, in the past) that the textbook grammar explanations in particular were very hard to understand and were generally lacking. If I had no knowledge of Japanese before I think I would have struggled.
No part of it, as far as I was concerned, was of least to no value to me.
Memorizing the conversations in the book.
Everything was valuable.

18. Other comments:
All of our seonsengnim were very helpful and knowledgeable in what they are teaching. Oh Kyoung Won made the class feel welcoming and fun to be in.
n/a
This was a hard class, but Kyoung Won Oh did her best to help all the students equally. I really felt the desire she had for us all to get A's.
N/A
I truly enjoyed taking Korean 101 with my instructors.
This class is structured differently from other language classes in which all the grammar points for the week are given in one day and the rest of the days are used to review and practice those grammar points. I liked it. I had a good experience overall.
