“The teachers promoted a close relationship between the learners and created a friendly learning environment. We have started watching international news and reading documents in English. We believe that the knowledge we gained will be very important in our daily work and life,” Minister Mai Tien Dung said.

He said that the course participants would continue to learn and practice English through various formats such as chats, discussions, emails and messages within the group as well as with the teachers and other partners.

She was delighted that the senior leaders were able to improve their language skills through the course, which would ultimately benefit their work.
