Korean Language Learning Grows In Popularity in Southeast Asia

2010/10/20 Source

The popularity of learning Korean seems to be growing in Southeast Asia as nearly 30-thousand people in Vietnam have taken the Korean language proficiency exam in 2010 to test and improve their Korean language skills.
The increase is five times greater than the number in 2006 demonstrating that more Vietnamese are interested in learning the Korean language and culture.
Analysts say that such popularity is most likely due to a growing number of Vietnamese wanting to come to Korea to work after having come in contact with a variety of Korean dramas, music and the culture itself.
Meanwhile Korean companies in Vietnam have been hiring more Vietnamese fluent in Korean which is likely to bolster economic ties between the two countries.
