ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to suggest the directions to develop standard curriculum for the University-level Program (UP) of English in Korea. The UP program is a Korean curriculum sponsored by the Ministry of Education and Technology, which offers standardized courses to high school students that are generally recognized to be equivalent to undergraduate courses in college. Participating colleges grant credit to students who obtained high enough scores on the exams to qualify. This study reviewed the data on line of the English and second language French curricula of AP (Advanced Placement) of the United States, IB (International Baccalaureate) of Europe, and GCE (General Certificate of Education)-A Level of the Great Britain, and analyzed the English courses of the current English curricular of high schools and colleges of Korea. The results show that ‘AP English Language & Composition’,‘Second Language’ (English) of IB, and ‘Modern French Language’ of GCE-A Level are closely connected with those of high school and college of Korea, and writing is central to the AP English courses and IB second language, and four skill (listening,reading, speaking and writing) development in GCE-A Level Modern French Language. The various topics like social issues, culture, mass media, etc for the course are considered more suitable for the Korean UP program rather than those of specific literary themes related with drama, poem, novel, etc.
