Dictation is the transcription of spoken text: one person who is "dictating" speaks and another who is "taking dictation" writes down the words as they are spoken.
Writing Korean in a correct way is critical as much as you speak the language correctly. It is essential to write a sentence with the correct spellings and spacing in the Korean language. Every elementary school tests students' writing skills during the first and second grades in Korea. Teachers speak a sentence, and students write down the spoken sentence. The test is graded based on spelling and spacing between words.
