The school curriculum consists of education that builds students` character, learning knowledge, socialization, and career education. The career education, which is called vocationㄴal education with a narrow focus, is to help adolescent students in particular to find their career suited to individual aptitude and talent and to develop their ability suitable to the career. Career education includes education about self, exploring careers, and practical business of a job, which all are implemented through career guides in each curriculum subject, integrated curriculum subjects, and extracurricular activities; curriculum-integrated career education is to integrate curriculum subjects and career education. Korean language curriculum describes stepwise Korean language ability which fosters elementary (1-2 grades), basic (3-4 grades), fundamental (5-6 grades), integrated (7-9 grades), and general and technical Korean language ability (10-12 grades). Such Korean language education needs to be a career-content-based curriculum for career education. Experience of exploring self-identity and a world view is what the Korean subject can fundamentally contribute to the career education. It is important that Korean language education should be balanced between education for humanities and education for career-related knowledge and skills, as well as career-specific literacy education and literacy of Chinese characters. Korean language education for specific purposes should be developed in relation to career education, with a consideration of career-specific assessment tools.
