Korean Placement Exam

Placement Exam

The online Korean placement test for the fall semester 2021 will be available from 06/14/2021 to 09/02/2021.

The confirmation test will be conducted via Zoom interview. After completion of the online test, contact Professor Min Koo Choi (mc1783@georgetown.edu (new window)) in order to schedule the confirmation test.

The purpose of the placement exam is to place you at the appropriate level of a Korean language course.

The Korean placement exam has two parts: an online placement test and a confirmation test.

Online Test: You can take the online placement test on your computer. It is comprised of 100 questions testing you grammar and reading in Korean, and has a 140-minute time limit to complete the online test. The online test is used for preregistration purposes.

Confirmation Test: You should confirm your placement through the confirmation test, which will test your speaking and writing, during the New Student Orientation in August for the fall semester, or by scheduling the confirmation test with Korean coordinator Prof. Min Koo Choi (mc1783@georgetown.edu or 202-687-3955) for the spring semester.

A student may need to move up or down to a class at a different level based on his/her confirmation test results. If you want to confirm your placement earlier, you can contact Prof. Min Koo Choi (mc1783@georgetown.edu or 202-687-3955) for scheduling the confirmation test.

Students with no previous knowledge about Korean should register for KREN 011 Intensive First Level Korean.

All other students must take the online placement test first that is accessible through the Canvas.
