MP Namal Rajapaksa tells Korean job aspirants:
‘There is no shortcut to success’
‘There is no way of finding a job in Korea unless the candidate gets
the required marks at the Korean Language Proficiency Test (KLPT). The
opinion that the KLPT can be passed through SMS is not true and those
methods will never be applicable to pass the test, Parliamentarian Namal
He was addressing a ceremony where a Korean language training
programme commenced for Korean job applicants to be eligible to sit for
the KLPT, at the Tangalle Urban Council auditorium on Monday. The Korean
Language Training Programme was organized by the Sri Lanka Bureau of
Foreign Employment (SLBFE) to improve the Korean language skills of Sri
Lankan job seekers in Korea.
“ If you want to pass the exam, you should work hard and be studious.
Before sitting the test , a real comprehension of the test should be
given. If you don’t work hard, you will find the test difficult. This
test will be a very easy task for those who study the Korean language
well, “he said.
“There is no shortcut to success. Be honest and true to yourself. You
cannot go to Korea without being familiar with the language.
‘Therefore, it is compulsory to attend Korean language classes. Don’t
give up the courses while they are in progress, “he requested. Foreign
Employment Minister Dilan Perera had directed all officials to conduct
this test in a very coherent and transparent manner and enhance the
efficiency of the test as well.
“As a direct result of those methodologies adopted, Sri Lanka was
crowned as the best country, by South Korea, which provided skilled
labour from all around the world.
“The South Korean government presented a memento to President Mahinda
Rajapaksa inn appreciation of this fact,” he added.
“I appreciate the Minister’s role in maintaining the tasks in
relation to providing skilled Sri Lankan labour to Korea in a very
efficient manner,” he said.
The issuing of KLPT application forms will commence from August 20 to
24 at all SLBFE branches and at six locations in Colombo on August 25.
The exam will be held on October 13,14 in Colombo. A special progarmme
