Annyeonghaseyo! Philippine public high schools will start teaching Korean Language

The Philippine’s Department of Education entered into an agreement with Korea to allow public high schools in the country to teach the Korean language.

On June 21, DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones and Undersecretary Dina Ocampo signed an agreement with Korean Ambassador to the Philippines Kim Jae Shin and First Secretary Lee Jin Cheol to enable DepEd to include Korean language (Hangeul) in the country’s high school curriculum under the Special Program in Foreign Language (SPFL).

We’ve felt the frustration over not being able to understand our favorite K-dramas and K-pop songs because we don’t speak Hangeul! Now, we’ve even learned speed-reading to catch up with reading the subtitles without missing anything happening on the drama, music video or live performance.

We can totally relate to those netizens who are wishing they are back in high school right now.
