Visang Education Vietnam Chief Representative Tae-in Yoon said, “I realize that the interest in Korean language is increasing day by day in Vietnam due to the increasing number of Korean companies that are trying to venture into Vietnam and the impact of Korean Wave (Hallyu) content such as K-pop. I hope that Vietnamese people can learn Korean language more easily in exciting new ways and use them in their own studies and working lives.”
The College of Urban Works Construction, under the Ministry of Labor, Vietnam, is an educational institution that promotes overseas employment for trained Vietnamese workers in accordance with the Vietnamese government's open door policy. The college provides students receiving vocational training aiming to find employment in Korean companies with Visang Education’s Korean Language Smart Solution (KLaSS) to learn Korean language.
The College of Urban Works Construction President Bui Hong Hue said, “Recently, in order to meet the demands of overseas markets, the College offer not only professional competency training but also intensive foreign languages programs. As international exchanges are expanding in various fields while maintaining friendly cooperative relationships between the two countries, we will actively support employment of skilled workers with Korean proficiency to work in Korea and to Korean companies in Vietnam.”
