TOPIK, Test of Proficiency in Korean
TOPIK is the only official examination that is globally recognized to assess the ability in the Korean language.
SEOUL Korean language centre offers TOPIK practice tests online and TOPIK preparation classes.
Everything you should know about TOPIK such as the test schedule 2021 is here. The following article will guide you to take the TOPIK 2021 in Singapore.
Why prepare TOPIK Test?
English is not the lingua franca in Korea. Therefore, being fluent in the Korean language is useful for daily life in Korea.
It would not matter if you are planning a short stay in Korea. However, if you are working, studying, or living in Korea for long term, learning the language is essential.
TOPIK is highly recommended for the following purposes.
1. Entrance into Korean Universities as a non-native Korean Speaker
2. Employment in companies and public institutions in both Korea and abroad
3. Obtaining permanent residency or other specific Visa types in Korea
4. Aquisition of a Korean Language Instructor certification as a non-native Korean speaker
5. For use in the ‘Korea Immigration and Integration Program’ operated by the Ministry of Justice
6. Korean Government Scholarship Program (KGSP) participants taking the Korean language course
Since it was first introduced in 1997, the number of TOPIK takers has been rising rapidly from a mere 3K to 376K in 2019.
