||Choi, Jin-Sook. (2015). An analysis of the relationship between Chinese students' Korean skills and their part-time work. The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal 23(2), 115-131. This study investigates the relationship between Chinese students' Korean skills and their part-time work. It was a question whether the international students' part-time work would be helpful for improving their Korean skills or not, because of a belief that putting hours in working can shorten the length of time for studying Korean language. In order to find the answer to the question, the questionnaire survey and in-depth (face-to-face) interviews were carried out with 102 Chinese students. As a result, a part-time work appeared as an important factor in determining their Korean skills: part-time working students had higher Korean skills and showed better improvement than the non part-time students. In addition, attitudes towards Korean language and Korean people were closely related to the part-time work: the part-time working group showed more positive attitudes, compared to the group which had no part-time job. These results imply that, whatever the quality of their work, the Chinese students' working experience in Korea can play a role in improving their Korean skills and forming a positive attitude to Korean language and people.
