12th Korean Teachers Training Workshop







Saturday, March 24, 2012

All Day


This year, approximately 60 people attended the 12th annual KTTW, held on March 24, 2012. Most of the attendants are currently active in the field of Korean language education as either teachers or administrators at weekend Korean schools, middle and high schools, universities, and Korean churches.

The opening remarks were given by Professor Namkil Kim of USC, and a keynote speech entitled "Korean Language Education at the DLIFLC" was given by Associate Professor Hong Goanpyo of the Defense Langauge Institute Foreign Language Center. These were followed by two workshop sessions. The first, "Effective Korean Language Teaching Methods Using Music," was led by Esther Shin, Korean Language Teacher at Sunny Hills High School. The second workshop session, "Korean Language Instruction Using Video," was led by Seonkyung Jeon, full-time Korean Instructor at UCLA.

The success of this year's workshop will help further establish a community network among those engaged in teaching Korean at all levels and educational settings, while also reinforcing the current high level of interested in learning and teaching Korea in the Southern California area.
