Vietnam province investing in ELT

Teaching-English-in-VietnamVietnam's TuoiTreNews reports on regional investment in English language teacher training.

A central Vietnam province plans to spend over VND176 billion (US$8.4 million) on a project to improve the learning and teaching of English from now until 2020.

The People’s Committee of Binh Dinh Province has said that most of the funding will come from the state coffers and the remaining will be raised from other sources.

This year the province will allocate VND24 billion ($1.1 million) for assessing the English command of 510 teachers, improving the language proficiency of 270 instructors, enrolling 30 teachers for improvement courses to be organized by the central government, sending 5 teachers to English-speaking countries for further training, and supplying learning and teaching equipment to schools at all levels.

Previously Long An, a southern province, had earmarked VND437 billion ($20.8 million) for helping its K-12 students to be able to speak English after graduating from high school.
