Sweden to Help Vietnam in Training English Language in 2018-2020

Sweden will help Vietnam in education and assessment of English language for both teachers and learners in 2018-2020, according to a memorandum of understanding signed between Deputy Minister of Education and Training Nguyen Van Phuc and Ambassador of Sweden to Vietnam Pereric Högberg. Under the deal inked in Hanoi on December 28, 2018, the European side will provide free-of-charge training courses for teachers and complimentary assessment tests. The tests are for self-evaluation, and will not be used as certificates. Besides, Sweden will help develop school clubs, which aims to build social skills and English language skills for students. Besides, teachers of English language in Vietnam will have access to the learning database of Sweden-based education company Education First.
