In Korean high school, there are many classes named like this: 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 2-1, 3-1 etc.

1-1 means first grade first class.. 2-1 means second grade first class .. something like that.

I don't think there is a grade system like my country in your country.

Anyway, I want to know how to call those classes. (one to one class? two to one class?)

moon72961-1 means first grade first class..This is very unfamiliar to us. Could you explain the terms a little more? Is "first grade" the student's first year in high school? Is "first class" the earliest class in the morning? ( This is just a guess.) Or do the terms mean something completely different? Would the class name have a subject as well as the numbers? (Like "mathematics 1-2"?)

moon7296one to one class? two to one class?)Regardless of what the numbers mean, I'm pretty sure this would

*not*be the right way to say it. Maybe I can suggest something when I understand the system a little better.

The first "1" in 1-1 means the students' first year in high school. The second "1" in 1-1 means the one of the class out of many classes in the same grade; for example, there are 10 classes and each student belongs to one of the class. In Korea, usually students don't move to class to class but they stay in one classroom and different subject teachers come to their classrooms to teach them. So for example, English teachers can go to 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 and 1-4 classes, and other English teachers can go to 1-5, 1-6, 1-7, and so on.

Is it still unclear?

moon7296khoffanonymousred scarf 755But how are students placed in these class ranks? Do they base it by their scores? So if you're in class 1-7 does that mean you're some genius or???

Anonynous fnAs far as my school sorts us, it is just random, it is not based on scores. The first number (ie. the 1 in 1-7) represents the grade you are in, in high school of course. In Korea we have 3 grades in high school not four. so all of the first years would be distributed into the classes that start with 1. So classes like 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, etc. The second number (ie. the 7 in 1-7) is just a classroom number, it is not anything more than that. I hope this helps!
