This paper attempts to suggest a teaching-and-learning method utilizing collaborative learning in Korean language and culture classes designed for Korean minors in foreign colleges. The subjects are students of the class <Korean Popular Culture> as a part of the minor course in Taiwan, and <Korean Through Media> as part of the minor course in Hong Kong. Although Korean literature provides exceptional educational materials assisting learners to understand Korean culture, society, mindset, and behavior, it faces numerous problems when being put into place in educational settings. Some of the major difficulties include a lack of lecture time, disparity between the learners’ Korean abilities and learning background, and shortage of professional workforce. As such, this research provides cases where collaborative learning was applied to the teaching-and-learning process in Korean literature courses to address those challenges. The authors expect the class cases provided in this research to serve as efficient teaching-and-learning methods for instructors struggling with said difficulties teaching Korean-related classes internationally or to foreigners in Korea.
