The multicultural phenomena of Korea are inevitable choices in the stream of globalization, international exchanges are increasing and all the countries are being bound to one economic bloc. At the front line of multicultural societies, As teachers and researchers in charge of Korean education have responsibilities for foreign learners to manage successful Korean lives by providing professional Korean educational programs and to encourage them in their prides and accomplishments by developing and supporting educational programs related with multicultures. The first educational target of Korean project work is aimed at the improvement of Korean competence. But it's not proper for foreign learners who are able to speak Korean as fluent as natives. Therefore this paper suggests educational targets of Korean project work added another ones. One of the added targets is to raise the learners' cultural status and adaptability to the multicultural society. Raising adaptability to the multicultural society means to develop the interculturality and the intercultural competence. For that reason, this paper chose a project work, 'making a multicultural fable'.

This is a very appropriate model of instruction for the learners in advanced class who can speak English and Korean like natives and have a plenty of Knowledges over their cultures. Through this project work, not only learners are able to improve their speaking, listening, reading and writing abilities of Korean competence but also they can reflect on the latent cultural subordination in their thoughts and attitudes. And they can develop the interculturality and intercultural competence which are the ways of recognizing and accepting a cultural diversity as well as resisting a cultural uniformity from the critical point of view.
