Intermediate Korean Classes Suspended Indefinitely

Since 2009-10, the Intermediate Korean course offerings were suspended with the statewide budget crisis for post-secondary schools and historically low class enrollments.  The following Korean courses have been placed on “suspension”:

  • KORE 004
  • KORE 005
  • KORE 006



Korean is one of many world languages taught at De Anza. We provide a wide range of course levels to meet the needs of our students, including introductory and/or elementary sequences for all foreign languages offered, and intermediate and advanced courses for some.

If you have studied a language at another institution, to accurately assess your past instruction (and support your success in further Korean language study), we require a World Languages Prerequisite Clearance to register in KORE 2 or higher.  If you would like to contact an instructor, see our Korean department faculty list.

Please follow these general rules to decide which course level is best for you.

  • One year of high school language is equal to one quarter of De Anza language. For example, if you took Korean 1 & 2 in high school, you can continue with Korean 3 at De Anza.

  • Review the Korean course catalog and current schedule of classes (see links on left menu).

  • If you have are a native speaker, have taken the language prerequisite at a college other than De Anza or Foothill, please submit the World Language Prerequisite Clearance application with an unofficial transcript supporting completion of your prior course work.
  • See our Intercultural/International Studies Division Frequently Ask Questions page for more information about taking a language class at De Anza.
