The Korean class at Tran Phu High School will enroll 35 students each year according to a decision announced by the city People’s Committee.
The Ministry of Education and Training has recently decided to pilot German and Korean as the first foreign languages at local schools.
As such, German and Korean will be taught as the first mandatory languages for students from third grade to twelve grades on the trial basis beginning this year.
Besides the pilot teaching of German and Korean, it is mandatory for Vietnamese students to learn one of the five foreign languages including English, Russian, French, Chinese and Japanese. Local students can opt for one among these languages to study.
