The major challenge for English education in Vietnam
Many Vietnamese students face the common problem that although they spent six or seven years studying English at school, they can’t pronounce an English sentence correctly, and they are not confident enough to communicate in the language.
It’s no secret that Vietnamese students struggle with English. Like many other Asian countries, Vietnamese people begin their English education very early at school, yet they find themselves helpless when it comes to speaking English. Words do not come out. Many Vietnamese students do have the words, they either heard them or read them but they can’t say them.
Intel Company also struggled to recruit engineers for its manufacturing facility in Ho Chi Minh City is a typical example. When the Company conducted a contest for 2000 IT students in Vietnam, there were only 90 qualified candidates. It means that only 5% of the candidates were qualified. And in this group, only 40 candidates have qualified the English language to be able to use. Intel Company recorded that this is the worst results in comparison with other countries where they invested in.
