 Korean-English-Filipino Pharse book Project

Practice Guide


project  outline

    Language is the vehicle of human thought. Although Korean students and Filipino students try to communicate each other, there are many difficulties due to the language barrier. Moreover, students want to learn each other's language, but there are no proper books to do so. Thus, we have been  published the Korean-English- Tagalog Dictionary after 2006 every year. And we have drawn up a project to make a Korean - Filipino  Pharse book through the medium of English. While carrying out this project, we are able to reach an understanding of both nations' culture as well as each other's language. Also, through the learners' interaction in the process of carrying out this project, students can learn to work with each other and gain team spirit.

Conclusion and anticipated effect

By carrying out the project of the Korean - Filippino Pharse book, we expect to not only get a deep understanding about our mother tongue but also to increase our command of English. Also, our understanding of the Korean and Tagalog language will help Korean and Filipino students to communicate with each other and to help us to understand each other's culture. Because this kind of project requires each group member's cooperation, we expect to influence each other in a positive way and to raise the attitudes of learning with mutual cooperation.
