Everything you should know about TOPIK Singapore 2023

Everything you should know about TOPIK Test Singapore 2023 such as the test schedule 2023 is here. The following article will guide you to take the TOPIK 2023 in Singapore.

What is TOPIK?

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.

TOPIK Korean Course

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.

Our TOPIK Test Achievement

Topik Test Level 6 Seoul Korean

Our student, Jeanette Lee obtained TOPIK Level 6 last year! Level 6 is the highest and also the hardest grade in TOPIK. 

Level 6 is such a challenging grade that even advanced Korean learners studying and living in Korea struggles to attain. 

Nevertheless, Jeanette has achieved the most challenging grade by studying in Singapore only – moreover the in first attempt!!! Truly an applaudable achievement.

Jeanette had been studying with SEOUL Korean, under our TOPIK Specialist Ms Kim Yeeseul who is currently lecturing at Seoul National University in Korea. She had been having TOPIK lessons with Ms Kim via Zoom with rigorous writing practices. When Jeanette first attended, she could hardly write a complete sentence but under Ms Kim’s guidance of 1 year only, she excelled at essays which led to accomplish TOPIK Level 6.

Writing is the most pivotal factor in TOPIK II and also the hardest area to improve without a good teacher. Reach us so that we can help you with our TOPIK specialist. Prepare for TOPIK with SEOUL Korean.
