TOPIK Test Soon: 4/20-4/21

For those taking the upcoming 30th TOPIK exam, intermediate level, I decided to put some helpful information together.

First off, for some basic information about the test and its format visit the official TOPIK website.
(view the English version of the website by changing the language in the top right corner of the page)

The TOPIK exam is divided into four categories:  Vocabulary/Grammar, Writing, Listening and Reading.

You might find the following resources useful in preparing for each section:

Vocabulary/Grammar Section
  • Haru Korean - post unlimited sentences and have them checked by native Korean speakers
  • Talk To Me in Korean - check out the "Iyagi" series, it's excellent for intermediate level listening practice
  • For more advanced level listening check out Korean news websites such as MBC.  Many feature news clips along with transcripts. 
  • My blog, kimchireading, is an excellent way to improve reading skills.  Works very well on smart phones!
  • Integrated Korean by Hawai'i Press is excellent for reading.  
By the way, it's too late to sign up for this test.  The next one will be offered on 7/21 in Korea only.
