ABSTRACT

In this paper, I suggested integrated Korean language instruction through the movie, My Wife Got Married. The discussion in the paper is not limited to only movies, so it can be applied to TV dramas and other general video materials. This paper suggests grammar and vocabulary learning as a warm-up activity, explaining Korean cultural background as one of main activities, expressing students' own ideas through discussion and writing an essay as wrap-up activities in a lesson. In addition, it also covers reading, vocabulary, grammar instruction by adopting the way of watching a movie while studying the movie script. These days the integrated instruction is recognized as a more effective way of learning rather than the instruction divided into speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Likewise, if we can extend a lesson to grammar and vocabulary as well as speaking, listening, reading, and writing using a movie, it will be a teaching method that fulfills the idea of integrated instruction and doubles students' attention in class at the same time. There is no doubt that the textbook should be in the center of instruction. However, teaching a language only depending on a textbook has the educational limitation. Therefore, the discussion in the paper is the necessity making use of video materials as a teaching aid. I make sure the discussion over Korean language instruction using video materials does not begin with the negative perspective on the teaching method based on the textbook. The teaching method suggested in this paper does not stress the class just drawing students' interest but it emphasizes video materials can be a great help in applying the knowledge acquired from the textbook. I try to make a suggestion that can maximize Korean language learning through the movie not just by watching a movie. I hope this paper can be a new solution and approach to Korean language instruction.
