    About us
    The school was found 5 years ago.
    The target of our centers is giving opportunities to children to learn English by providing low price English classes to them. I strongly believe that studying English at the early ages would make children improve their English. Our students have not had chances to study, to talk, to practice speaking skill with foreigners although they are really good at grammar. I thought that being born and living in the suburb is really a disadvantage for rural children in comparison to those living in the city. That is why I have decided to create an international community for foreigners in my area by applying to be a host in Workaway. So, coming to my center to help my lovely little angles to overcome their fear of learning English, so they will achieve their dream of communicating with foreigners fluently and getting a good job in an English speaking environment.
    Moreover, I would like to create a multi-cultural environment for both volunteers and Vietnamese people. You can discover the Vietnamese culture and customs through meals, landscapes and festivals. I believe that your contribution will bring many practical benefits to the community and society.
