Kudos to the Korean Language Flagship Center at the University of Hawaii for partnering with my alma mater Roosevelt High School to provide a Korean-language class. The Korean class is held every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:15 to 5 p.m. for 18 weeks. This program is funded by the National Resource Center-East Asia and is the first credit-bearing Korean curriculum in Hawaii. Students will gain 0.5 credits toward their high school graduation requirements. The class covers basic conversational skills and aspects of Korean culture, such as K-dramas and K-pop.
