(PowerKorea) In this age of global commerce, English is a must for a competent businessman to make trades and deals. The business side apart, English is the most spoken language in the world with the number estimated around 1.35 billion people either natively or as a second language, slightly more than the 1.12 billion Mandarin Chinese speakers as of 2021 according to statista.com
Parents in some countries including South Korea start English education for their children as early as elementary school and some even kindergarten. Studying or staying in the native English speaking countries such as the US, UK, Canada, Australis and New Zealand can be advantageous while the scores of English exams such as IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC and TEPS are important for them to get a better job and opportunity.
Talking of English exams, TEPS might sound new to foreigners as it is designed specifically to evaluate the competency of Koreans. It stands for the Test of English Proficiency and it was developed by Seoul National University’s Language Education Institute.
There are many TEPS institutes and courses on/off line in South Korea. If you are curious to know which teaches TEPS better, Consulteps is worth paying attention: it has topped in producing students who achieved targeted scores the most by beating Hackers, YBM and Pagoda this year, ranked first in online TEPS course in 2017, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Samsung Multicampus in 2018, obtained Venture Certificate from the Korea SMEs and Startups Agency in 2019, and published Essence of TEPS in 2020 listed in the bestseller in the category. Most recently, it won the Korean Education Dedication Awards 2021 in the language education and the 2021 Korea Culture Management Awards in the education data.
Jaeil Lee, CEO of Consulteps, studied abroad when in school years but came back home without fruits. Trying again with his own way, he achieved enlightenment, passed TOEFL, TOEIC, SAT and TEPS with high scores and made for Korea University on special admission. The enlightenment he gained was ‘method is far more important than staying abroad’. Having systematized the method, he launched his own TEPS method lab Consulteps.
Developed and introduced by Lee himself was ‘data-based level by level customized curriculum’ which is breaking the notorious dark rule of TEPS: no matter how hard you study, you hardly make progress in scores. The effectiveness and efficiency is being proved by score reviews of students at Consulteps.
“I and my experienced staff will keep working together to introduce more advanced data-based learning and exam patterns and systems so that students have the scores they targeted and get better opportunity in both academic careers and job searches” says Lee.
