ABSTRACT

This research surveys 175 students who are taking the Korean Language Teacher Education Course about their perception about native language education programs and analyzes the results. 91 students(53%) responded that the hours of native language classes should be expanded and the common textbooks of native language education are generally satisfying. 144 students(82.3%) agreed that there should be native language education for adult, although native language education programs for adult are actually insufficient. The students consider native language education for adult different from Korean language education as a foreign language. Only 57 students(32.5%) responded that they heard about native language education organizations for adult in Korea and 118 students responded that they never heard about the organizations. Also, 135 students(77.1%) responded that they could not get the native language education for adult are because they didn't know the programs or the organizations or didn't have time. 89 students(50.8%) responded that they would like to continue native language learning, but they don't know the program contents and the locations. Judging from this, it needs to intensify the system of native language education programs for adult and actively advertise the programs. 71 students(40.5%) responded that they would prefer small group cooperative learning as the form of learning, if a new native language education program is established. Furthermore, the majority of students responded that once a week for 2~3 hours is adequate and they are more interested in a practical native language education program which teaches vocabulary, language standards, Hangul, and how to improve language skills such as speaking, listening and writing. Lastly, this research proposes that native language education for adult should be introduced as a part of lifelong education which meets social learning.
