Clarifications Regarding This Saturday (6 February), Korean Language Volunteers and Miscellany

From: Daniel
Sent on: Monday, February 1, 2010 3:33 AM
"Introduction to the Korean Language Class," Afternoon Meetup and Intermediate "Conversations in Korean" on Saturday, 6 February

To clarify a few things about this Saturday...

- "Introduction to the Korean Language" meets on the 11th floor (DePaul Student Center) at 1:00 pm again. We will not be in the Harold Washington Library. Those members who have attended a previous class and/or have a strong foundation in the consonants and vowels should come to Youni's 1:00 pm session.

- The Afternoon Meetup at 2:00 pm is for those members who couldn't make the first two sessions of class, would like to catch up on the material taught previously in the workshop or simply opt to drop by to discover options (whether English or Korean). It is a good opportunity to socialize and meet other members.

- The intermediate conversational group will also meet on the 11th floor, but at 2:00 pm. It is meant for two to three intermediate Korean speakers who would like to practice conversation and improve their listening comprehension. It will be conducted mostly in Korean.

... if you have questions or I left anything out, please reply to this message.

Korean Language Volunteers for this Saturday

Two or three Korean language volunteers would be invaluable for our 2:00 pm event. If it is convenient for you to attend and you would like to help out, please stop by. Several opportunities are available.f you could help in that capacity - whether once or recurring - please reply to this message. We customarily meet at the Barnes & Noble Cafe (State and Jackson) prior to moving upstairs to the DePaul Student Center at 1:00 pm. Please contact reply for more information.

Event Suggestions

Any ideas for events, language exchange sessions, venues to visit or other Meetup options that haven't been pursued would be appreciated. There have been several requests to try out some Chicago establishments other than Korean, so we will attempt to accommodate those suggestions.
