Included here will will be texts, links to webpages, and images.
Our focus in this class will be the paragraph. Great paragraphs are an essential element of successful writing (both in English and Korean!). Depending on our success, we may move on to different types of essays and business written communications.
During the first day of class you will show a bit of your current skills by writing three paragraphs:
- a brief introduction of yourself
- a short history of your schooling
- your winter plans
Some of the websites we will be working from (we will certainly add to this list during our time together!)
