I congratulate all of you as you have become a part of ULIS, I hope you well and hope to see you conducting the course with a studious attitude so as to gain as much knowledge as you possibly can and find a way to apply that knowledge to your future work.”

On behalf of the students, Hoang Huong Tra shared that after finishing her undergraduate program in Korean language, she worked at a Korean company in Vietnam. During the time there, she felt that her Korean proficiency was still not good enough, so she was eager to learn and understand more about such language.

“Can’t afford to study abroad, I was so delighted to know that ULIS had launched this program” she says.

 The launch of this Korean language course (MA) marks a significant point on the history of ULIS as ULIS is the first institution runs this program in Vietnam.
