I selected the Aesop Fable “Wind and the Sun” and watched an animated video which taught me the moral of the story was kindness is more effective than strength.
표준한국어(KLS) – Korean as second language
다문화 – Multi-cultural
Courses offered range from beginner to advanced. I watched “Romantic Korea: Rice wine, becomes poems and smiles” which is a video program with both Korean and English subtitles. Programs cover Korean food, travel, science, fairy tales, music, practical family matters like pregnancy and children’s education.
