Korean language to be offered soon in public high schools

The Department of Education (DepEd) signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the South Korean Embassy on June 21 which would allow DepEd to teach the Korean language in public high schools through the Special Program in Foreign Language (SPFL).

The MOA was signed by Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones and Undersecretary Dina Ocampo from DepEd and Ambassador Kim Jaeshin and First Secretary Lee Jincheol from the Korean Embassy.

The SPFL, which started in school year 2009-2010, is open to Grades 7 to 12 students who have demonstrated competence in English based on their National Achievement Test (NAT) results, and are capable of learning another foreign language. The Korean language shall be added to the existing languages already offered under the program, such as Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, French, and German.
