January 11 is the deadline for enrollment for spring semester of Korean Institute of Minnesota, a Saturday school for Korean culture and language, located in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. Because of the ongoing pandemic, all classes will be held on line for the second semester of the school year, which will run for 11 consecutive Saturdays, from February 6 to April 24.
Pre-K through third grade classes will meet in small groups with a teacher for 30 minutes each week. Grades four through six will meet for one-hour classes. Due to the online platform, Pre-K through sixth grade classes will not include taekwondo or self-esteem topics. Teen classes will also meet for one-hour sessions. Adult (beginner, intermediate, advanced) Korean language classes will meet for 75- to 90-minute sessions and be supplemented with offline materials. There may be some adjustments based on student and parent response from the fall on-line class evaluations.
Participants will receive teacher and class assignments by January 29. Tuition is $200 per semester for Pre-K to sixth grade, and $225 per semester for teen and language-intensive classes, with an additional cost for textbooks. There is also a family discount and tuition assistance is available. Please refer to the website for more information and registration forms.
