On the First Revised Edition
The Open Exercise Book of the Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK) for the EmploymentPermit System (EPS) was first released in 2008, for the purpose that foreign workers wishing totake jobs in Korea can easily learn Korean at less cost. Since then,
has been taken fromthe Open Exercise Book, comprising of 1,000 listening questions and 1,000 reading questions.Two years after its first release, facing the need to reflect the changing Korean labor marketconditions and requests regarding on-site practical Korean for foreign workers, we hereby releasethe 1st revised edition with 10% additional material (100 listening questions and 100 readingquestions). For the improved adaptability of foreign workers to life in Korea, we have researchedthe practical expressions used on sites such as small-sized companies, farms and fish farms, anddeveloped new questions. We used English translation and pronunciation for all questions thatenable workers from the EPS countries to understand and study the meaning and pronunciation of Korean with this
Exercise Book. For your information, only 10% was substituted andsuch questions are marked in order to avoid possible confusion by examinees. This first revisededition will apply from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2013. The questions and answers for the test maychange partially to improve foreign workers’ proficiency in the Korean language.This Exercise Book is uploaded on the website of the Human Resources Development Service of Korea (www.hrdkorea.or.kr), the Employment Permit System (www.eps.go.kr) and the EPS-
