After waiting for more than one month, I finally got my TOPIK results and it was disappointing. Well it wasn’t that bad because I did pass level 1. I was aiming for level 2 but I think I’m 22 points short and I also need 1 more point for writing. I’m not really sure of my math so whatever. Haha! Here I’ll just share it with you.
I was really sad yesterday because I just declined a job offer for another job that I like better but I’m still not sure of getting. The company president did email that they’re considering me for the position which was the reason why I declined the offer that I already have. Added to that is the disappointment that I did not pass level 2 which meant that I won’t be able to take Intermediate Korean and has to repeat Elem 2 because I wasn’t able to finish the class . I’m not sure if I really want to do that. I’m kind of tired of traveling to BGC because I despise riding MRT for being so congested. Plus, even if I didn’t finish the class, I actually know all the grammar points for Elem 2 so it might be useless to re-enroll just for the purpose of advancing to Intermediate without a TOPIK level 2 certificate. I also don’t want another Elem 2 book, but if I do re-enroll, I could use the book for a give away or something.
Oh! I also have some good news for you guys! I’ve been searching for another school that offers conversational Korean so I can practice my speaking and listening skills. I haven’t find one yet, but I did find some other interesting schools in the Metro which you guys might like. I’m gonna post them here once I get the rates per hour. I know I always say that I’m gonna post something, but this one’s for real, promise!
And if you know some language schools offering conversational classes or a Korean BPO program, please inform me. I know Berlitz and The Bridge has BPO partners, but if you’re gonna enroll as an individual, I think it’s too expensive. ENLI also has BPO programs, but I have yet to receive a reply with regards to their Korean BPO program if they do have one… they have classes in Japanese and some European languages for around 30, 000 pesos more or less. They also have some promos so you could get it half the price depending on the number of hours. This is for the fluency program so don’t be too shocked about the fee. For the standard ones you could check out my previous blogs about Korean schools in Manila. You can find the link on the right side or click here.
Also, if you’re a language school in the Philippines that’s interested to promote your school, you can comment below and I’d look into it and possibly include you in my next blog post. I’m looking for language schools and not agency-types that’s teaching Korean for factory workers, but I might do a separate post for factory workers or those seeking work in Korea so you might as well comment below. Please just inform me if you’re one of those agency types. Thanks and I do hope to hear from you guys! 🙂
P.S. There are some people who contact me via Facebook which I don’t really mind, but it’s kind of creepy since I didn’t share my Facebook here… anyway, your messages goes to my other inbox so if you have urgent questions, just please comment below. Or you can continue messaging me on Facebook as well as I’ve made it a habit to check my other inbox anyway… but it’s creepy you know. Haha!
