Congratulations to Monash student Lorraine Lok Leung for passing the TOPIK (Test of Proficiency in Korean) Test at level 6 on 21 October 2017.
TOPIK is a written test designed to measure the ability of non-native speakers for expression and comprehension in the Korean language. The test measures proficiency in reading, writing, and listening comprehension in the Korean language. The test has three different levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. Further accuracy is expressed through six grades, two matched to each level to evaluate proficiency.
This comprehensive test is intended for non-native speakers of Korean, such as Korean language learners, international students who want to study in Korea as well as individuals who would like to work in Korean companies and public institutions. The test also serves as an excellent opportunity to receive formal certification for those who expect to use Korean in their careers. Students of Korean who take the test will also learn which aspects of the language they need to concentrate on in future study.
Lorraine is undertaking a double major in Korean Studies and Communication and Media Studies. In the future, Lorraine plans to use her Korean to do translation and media-related work.
Congratulations Lorraine! This is an outstanding achievement.
