Discussion of Korean culture includes these topics: (1) social and cultural changes; (2) family structure; (3) holidays and festivals; (4) discipline for children; (5) home customs; (6) educational system; and (7) learning and teaching styles. Characteristics of the Korean language are examined and English and Korean phonology are compared.
