I didn't know that TESDA offers free foreign language lessons and used to include Korean on the list. Good to know! 

Everyday is a learning journey. Keep going!

They did. :) But you need proof that you'll be using the language for work before you get enrolled. They had Korean and Japanese. Not sure if they still have Japanese though.

This is a good read, ikay. Thank you. Well, I just hope they would also offer to those who wants to learn the languages and not only for those who need it.

I used to train for TESDA and what they're offering are scholarship programs to help people secure jobs. That's why for most of their courses, the trainers have a target to have a certain percentage of the participants employed. I facilitated Contact Center Services NC II and the target was 80% hire rate. :)

Right. I actually read more about it when you posted this and learned that it's more targetted to those who will be working outside the country. Still, it's a huge help!

I think local employment works too. Here's the updated list of courses active. You can just apply online too. :)

No prob. :) I think TESDA is still revising their course offerings since some of what they used to offer is now part of K12.

Are the language courses only available in Manila? I haven't heard of TESDA offering those courses here in the province. :)
