The Seoul Global Center will run a set of free preparation classes for the Test of Proficiency in Korean ahead of the next exam on July 17.

The classes are open to all foreign residents and run from May 21 to July 13 in three levels.

Classes will run Saturdays and Sundays at 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for the beginner and intermediate classes and from 1-3 p.m. for advanced classes. An alternative intermediate course is available on Monday and Wednesday from 7-9 p.m.

There are no course fees but a textbook deposit of 40,000 won is required.

Those who want to attend the course should apply in person, with a photo, ID card and proof of any previous TOPIK attainment. New students or those without TOPIK scores will have to undergo a test for class level placement.

Registration and placement tests for the courses will take place on Saturday. No advance applications will be accepted.
