Wenzao cooperates with the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, National Vietnam University, Hanoi, and the State University of Malang, Indonesia, on holding Vietnamese and Indonesian Language Proficiency Tests in Taiwan for the first time on the 8th. The application deadline has passed, and the tests have drawn more than 40 students and professionals working in international business, Chinese teaching, governmental agencies, and service industries around Taiwan. The Center for Southeast Asian Languages Teaching says that test certificates will be verified by Wenzao and the other two universities, making them credible in Taiwan, Vietnam, and Indonesia.

 

 

Wenzao founded the Center for Southeast Asian Languages Teaching in 2014, offering Southeast Asian language courses in the Day Division and the Division of Continuing Education, such as Vietnamese, Indonesian, Thai, and Cambodian. With a grant from the Ministry of Education in 2016, the Center set up the Southeast Asian Languages and Industry Credit Program. By attracting more than 1000 students to take Southeast Asian courses in the past two years, the Program has achieved remarkable results. The Center has therefore been approved by the government to offer the Master of Arts in its Southeast Asian Studies (MSEAS) Program in the 2018 academic year, and establish the Department of Southeast Asian Studies in the 2019 academic year, cultivating “Southeast Asian” academic and industrial talents.

 

 

Given that there are few reliable language proficiency test institutions of Southeast Asian languages, several teachers of the Center for Southeast Asian Languages Teaching actively went to Southeast Asia to gain a better understanding of, and visit, local language proficiency test institutions in the past year. In terms of Vietnamese language, Wenzao chose to work with the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, National Vietnam University, Hanoi; in terms of Indonesian language, Wenzao partnered with the State University of Malang.

 

 

The Center for Southeast Asian Languages Teaching says that the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, National Vietnam University, Hanoi, has a long history and top departments of Vietnamese teaching and studies. Several professors were invited by the Ministry of Education and Training (Vietnam) to devise the structure of Vietnamese Proficiency Test and make interpretations for Vietnamese tests. These professors are the authorities in Vietnamese Tests. The State University of Malang is the founder of BIPA (Ujian Kemampuan Bahasa Indonesia bagi Penutur Asing); it has been providing non-native speakers with Indonesian courses since 1974. Its proficiency test results are often used as proof for applying for working visa and school admission in Indonesia.

 

 

Wenzao’s Vietnamese and Indonesian Proficiency Tests will be held on September 8th. These tests have three stages and six levels. The Center for Southeast Asian Languages Teaching suggests that it is currently discussing with a prestigious university in Thailand about holding Thai Proficiency Tests in Taiwan, in order to offer more internationally credible Southeast Language Proficiency Tests and bolster the New Southbound Policy.
