Korean Language Included in Special Program in Foreign Language of DepEd

Well, sure, Filipinos are known to be competitive for the reason that we all know how to speak English. It has been taught to us from pre-school to college so we can confidently say we're knowledgeable in English, however, our eagerness to learn language does not stop in English alone, to be precise, we even try to translate our words in other languages as solution to our curiosity. 


Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones and the Republic of Korea Ambassador to the Philippines Kim Jae Shin signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on June 21 at the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization Regional Centre for Educational Innovation and Technology (SEAMEO INNOTECH), Diliman, Quezon City.

Brace yourselves as DepEd introduces another foreign language which is to be taught in ten (10) selected secondary schools in the National Capital Region (NCR) that can cater in the needs of our fellow countrymen.


Korean Language will be introduced as the second foreign language according to DepEd and will be available this year. 

Kim Jae Shin stated that opportunities are more likely to open doors in both local and international employment, to those who learned how to speak Korean Language. K-12 students are very lucky to be given such opportunities to learn more than just two (2) languages. DepEd's special program in Foreign Languages also includes: French, Mandarin, Spanish, Nihongo, and German Language.

Indulging ourselves to this may help our employment status around the world. We will be more skilled and competitive as we learn more languages which can definitely raise our employment rate wherever we may be.

Special Program in Foreign Languages (SPFL), public high school students all over the country are also learning Spanish, Japanese, French, German, and Chinese-Mandarin.
