This program is designed to motivate four- and five-year old Korean-American children to learn Hangul, the Korean language. Multimedia techniques make these lessons fun and interesting, by using lively visual images, sounds, and animation to communicate the material and have children practice Hangul. To do so, the program utilizes a three-part methodology:

** Lesson 1 is word recognition,

** Lesson 2 teaches Korean language characters

** Lesson 3 teaches sentences.

Once children understand the lesson concepts, they play games to reinforce their understanding of those concepts. This practice stimulates functions of the brain and provides an interesting way for the children to learn and practice Hangul. Many Korean parents are eager to teach their children the Korean language because they live in an immigrant society. They permanently have moved to another country, but still wish to retain their Korean heritage. This program recognizes the desire many families have to maintain their Korean culture through future generations.
