“I tell students: ‘This is not a knowing class; it’s a doing class,’” said Mijeong Mimi Kim, Teaching Professor of Korean Language and Korean Language Coordinator in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at Washington University in St. Louis. Kim has a master’s degree in linguistics from State University of New York and a doctorate degree in education from the University of San Francisco. She teaches first level, second level, and third level modern Korean courses at Washington University. Her first- and second-level classes meet five times a week to build fluency.
