Lacking money, teachers, English program goes at snail’s pace

Teaching-English-in-Japan"VietNamNet Bridge reports that in the 2012-2013 academic year, only 20 percent of first graders in Hi Chi Minh City could learn English in accordance with the 2020 national foreign language teaching program.

To date, the national program still cannot be implemented in the districts of Binh Tan, Phu Nhuan and district 6.

Le Ngoc Diep, Head of the Primary Education Division of the HCM City Education and Training Department, said the city hopes to raise the proportion to 50 percent in the 2013-3014 academic year, but admitted that the program is facing too many difficulties.

If the difficulties cannot be settled, the city’s targeted plan of having 100 percent of primary school students accessing to the English teaching programs -- either the intensive learning program and national program, would fail.
