- The aim of this paper is to present a historical overview of Korean as a second language writing methods, to sketch current practices of writing education, and to
provide suggestions for future directions in Korean writing research and practice.
The history of Korean writing since about 1959 - the beginning of the modem era
of Korean language education - can be regarded as a succession of orientations.
Product-focused approach and controlled writing had been a dominant writing method until early nineties. Since Around 2000, process-focused approach has been preferred to product-focused approach. Korean for academic purposes was introduced around 2000. Nowadays, writing is taught in a communicative way
where teachers emphasize process of writing, discourse-level writing, task-based
writing as well as collaborative writing. Novice and advanced teaching plans are
presented here as examples of current practices of writing education. The past 40
years show remarkable development in writing education, but KSL writing education still needs to give detailed teaching items as well as to improve teaching
methods which suit various types of Korean learners.
