Regarding the placement test date for each term, refer to Yonsei KLI’s schedule for more information.
On the day itself, proceed to the auditorium (room 121) at 0930 for a short briefing before the placement test. The briefing will be conducted in Korean, English, Mandarin and Japanese. After the briefing, students taking the placement test will then be separated into different classrooms. You will be given a small slip of paper on your way out which indicates the classroom number you have to go to for your writing test. While doing the test, you will be called out individually for your speaking test held in the next classroom. Students taking the placement test must do both the writing and speaking test.
Those who intend to start from level 1 may also attend the briefing, although it is not compulsory. There will be a separate briefing for you after the rest of the students taking the placement test leaves the auditorium.
– Approximately 13 pages in total
– You need not complete everything, just do as much as you can
– From easy to tough questions (e.g. What is your name? Which country are you from? Why do you want to learn the Korean language? Where did you learn the Korean language previously? What do you intend to do in Korea apart from studying the Korean language? What is the most popular food in your home country, how does it taste like? Where will you recommend if I were to go on a vacation in your home country? etc.)
Briefing and test will take you about two hours.
