Recently, Korea has actively entered the global society and has rapidly become globalized in the domestic society. The K-pop(Korean pop) has evolved into the third generation called K-Culture (Korean culture), which has expanded to many countries around the world, especially China and Southeast Asia. As a result, many foreign learners from various countries are flowing in to learn Korean language and culture. Meanwhile the number of marriage immigrants increased steadily every year, in which the majority of them are Chinese. Women marriage immigrants who married Korean spouses and settled in Korea are in a different position compare to foreign students and migrant workers. They face the task of learning not only Korean language, but also lifestyle and culture. Also as members of the families, they must simultaneously play various roles such as spouses, mothers, and daughters-in-law. In addition, Korean Family Culture is different from it in their own countries. Therefore Korean Family culture is an important element that female marriage immigrants must learn, in order to help live a stable life and build a healthy family. It is necessary not only to learn Korean, but also to understand each other's culture, meanwhile to acknowledge the difference from the culture of the mother country. Under this background, this paper suggested how to prepare a Korean family culture education plan by analyzing the results based on in-depth interviews with advanced Chinese learners. In addition, Korean cultural education teaching and learning methods were presented utilizing the program 『Multicultural Gobuyeoljeon』.

Chapters 1 and 2 of this study describe the definitions and characteristics of the Fourth Industrial Era and its major technologies used in the field of foreign language education. Chapter 3 discusses the ideal quality of Korean language teachers and the role they should play in the Fourth Industrial Era. Moreover, support measures to prevent alienation from new technologies and to help improve the quality of teachers are suggested. The overall study is summarized as follows.
One of the foremost qualities that Korean language teachers in the Fourth Industrial Era should acquire is Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK), which enables Korean language education using new technologies. Another important quality of teachers is “to constantly research technologies that can be used in class.” Given the rapid pace of technological advancement, Korean language teachers must also constantly learn to keep pace with technological advances.
Next, teachers in the Fourth Industrial Era should try to maximize the positive impact of new technologies in the Fourth Industrial Era and accommodate them in classrooms. Simultaneously, it is important to overcome the negative impact of new technologies on education.
Institutionally, the curriculum for training Korean language teachers should be improved to reflect the Fourth Industrial Revolution Era. This is because even if there are VR and AR devices in the classroom, it is useless if teachers cannot use them proficiently. Finally, government agencies, local governments, and others should pay attention to marriage immigrants and their multicultural families and support them so that they do not experience technological alienation.
