Honarn University, Korea
Students' own attitude and perception about their learning subject have
a great influence on their achievement. This paper examines how Korean
university students perceive English-speaking culture, how well they are
aware of the importance of Korean-English intercultural understanding and
what they expect to learn from the courses on American culture and society.
The purpose of this paper is to suggest a practical framework for developing
course syllabus based on wants and needs of Korean learners of English
language and culture at the university level.
