Creative Drama, an Effective Medium in Teaching Korean Language and Culture
This paper is a case study of using creative drama as a teaching tool in the intermediate level Korean language classroom. The class model suggests effective ways to incorporate dramatic activities to improve oral proficiency as well as reading and writing skills. Specific teaching methods include: using pictures on the projection screen as prompts for improvised role-plays, helping students with short script writing, and utilizing animated movies with or without sound and with or without Korean subtitles.
