I have been working and living in Vietnam for 2 years and recently I extended my contract. During my previous 2 years here, I did not bother learning Vietnamese language because most of my colleagues all wanted to speak English with me. Recently, I signed on for a further period in Vietnam, so I decided it was my turn to learn Vietnamese. My goal is to hold some very basic conversation with people and use this to assist me with my day to day life here in Vietnam. I found the VNC Language Centre on the internet and contacted the school in regards to my requirements. Since my enrolment almost 2 months ago, I have developed enough skills to hold some very basic conversations. It is amazing the difference it makes when the local people understand that you are making an effort to speak their language. As soon as I attempt conversation, people begin smiling and want to converse with me. ... It’s a great feeling. I have been very happy with the course, the flexibility it provides me with and the professional way it has been delivered
I had the good fortune to study Vietnamese at VNC Language Training School for 3 weeks in January 2011 and 2 weeks in June 2011 and found the experience to be very positive. The school is conveniently located in the central business district of downtown Saigon and offers flexible teaching hours. In my case, I had already studied some Vietnamese and the school quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses and designed a program to improve my Vietnamese speech and listening comprehension. My teacher, cô Thuy, was a specialist in teaching Vietnamese as a Second Language and this is an important and vital distinction that foreign students should look for in any school they attend. I believe VNC represents a excellent value for the students' investment, and, as always is the case, progress is maximized when the student diligently follows up with daily practice and exercises. Overall I left the school with improved speaking and listening abilities, expanded vocabulary, and a more confident speaker as well as more knowledgeable of the Vietnamese culture. I would heartily recommend VNC to any new or continuing students of the Vietnamese language.
It has been my great pleasure to study Vietnamese language at VNC. They arranged classes for me according to my schedule, which is very comfortable. And my teachers are great. I have learn new grammars and lots of new vocabularies. The location is great, it is so close to downtown. All in all I have learn a lot of Vietnamese and about Vietnamese culture here and it's so much fun.
Starting to learn the Vietnamese laguage in March 2012, I had during all my lessons a wonderful time at VNC although learning needs lot of effort and energy. With the friendly and patient support to get to learn the Vietnamese language by the teacher, such difficult language as Vietnamese, especially for western peope, it is a great experience to enter that area. It opens you a wide field of new and unknown cultural discovery. The VNC homepage reflects the friendly spirit.
I’m planning on staying in Vietnam for a few months and I am interested in studying the Vietnamese language. VNC is the best solution I've found for learning Vietnamese that’s tailored to my needs. The teacher I was paired with is very well educated in both English and Vietnamese. The teaching method is clear, effective and easy-to-understand. I was able to pick my schedule, teacher and go at my own pace. I am a satisfied student.
