2nd Australian Korean Dictation Contest
UNSW Languages Week Event 2nd Australian Korean Dictation Contest
The UNSW School of Humanities and Languages is hosting a Languages Week event in October to promote the importance of language learning by Australian students. This event will be held just a few days before the annual Hangeul Day, which commemorates the Korean alphabet as a public holiday in South Korea. In that regard, the proposed online 2nd Korean Dictation Contest event is timely and meaningful. This event will be a great occasion to celebrate the Hangeul Day in Australia and promote studies of Australia’s priority languages like Korean.
