    Introduction

    We are so glad that you have enrolled in Survival Korean I: Titles and Greetings! We hope that over the next four weeks you not only enjoy learning new words and expressions that will help you communicate in Korean authentic ways, but also that you are able to appropriately address others in different contexts (such as work or school). Each module will provide you the necessary knowledge to understand the meaning of different titles, as well as the subtle nuance and differences between them. At the same time, there are expressions/dialogues to assist in developing your reading, listening, and speaking fluency. When you feel comfortable please also rate our course with the block on the right so we what you thought!

    Sincerely

      Talking about Family

      Let's Begin!

      Complex social orders, patriarchal traditions, and very elaborate Confucian philosophical heritage has resulted a lot of different wayts to address people, including the people most closest to you: family. Rather than use their given names or address family directly, very specific relationship terms are used. Further, the closer that non-biologically related people are, family relationship names can be used to create a more communal bond among one another. It can sound complicated but that's what Survival Korean is here for - to help you along the way. We will start Lesson 1 by looking at family relationship names so you can talk about your family and ask about the families of others! Let's begin!

        Let's Begin!

        Talking with classmates and coworkers can be complicated. While family member relationships are often immutable, this isn't the case with people from school or the office. Moreover, there are often numerous ways you can address someone depending on how you know them and the context a conversation is taking place in.

          Dating and Relationships

          Let's Begin!

          Like we saw in Lessons 1 and 2, how we address people depends on numerous factors: some obvious, others very subtle. Dating and Relationship terms are no different; the words used are a reflection of very specific nuance. Of course, there are also multiple possible terms and forms of address. With that said, let's begin Lesson 3!

          To Do

          • Read through Lesson 3.1 to 3.4.
          • Study and review the keywords in the glossary.

            Meeting New People

            Let's Begin!

            While we spend most of our days talking with people we know from our family, friends, and coworkers, we also meet people that we do not know at stores, on public transporation, over the phone, etc. Addressing them appropriately is not only a sign of proper courtesy, but also of language knowledge. In Lesson 4, we will learn just how to address people that you do not know but will interact with in your daily lives!

            To Do

            • Read through Lesson 4.1 to 4.4.
            • Study and review the keywords in the glossary.
            • Evaluate your learning with the Knowledge Check.
