International House Davis presents a new Korean class taught by UC Davis student Helen Shin, who is majoring in global studies.

Born in South Korea, Shin has traveled around the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, New York, New Jersey, Boston and California. She would like to share her culture by teaching Korean to community members.

The new class will be offered at 1 p.m. Fridays at International House, Davis, 10 College Park. The first class will be Friday, Jan. 11.

This class introduces beginners to Korean grammar and development of language skills in a cultural context with special emphasis on communication, reading and writing. Class materials include books written by top Korean language institutions, folk tales, fairy tales, short novels and poetry.

“This is a great opportunity to learn about a new culture while learning a new language,” Shin said.

I-House offers 20 classes in nine different languages — Japanese, German, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, Mandarin, French, Farsi and English — executive director Elisabeth Sherwin said. Korean will make the 10th.

“Many Americans may be interested in learning Korean for business reasons, as Samsung, Hyundai and Forever 21 are all Korean global companies,” she said.

The first class is free. The fee thereafter is an I-House membership: $40 per year for a general member and $20 per year for a student.

For more information, call I-House at 530-753-5007.

    There's a lot of interest in learning foreign languages in modern times. You get people learning Korean by watching jdramas. A lot of people don't have time for studying using courses. So there's more interest in ways to learn. All of this is very helpful.
