The program which has commenced since 2016 with the fund of $ 30,000 from the US Embassy aims at offering free English classes to students with good academic performance but difficult family situation.  


Ms. Nguyen Thi Tuyet Nhung, faculty member of TVU School of Foreign Languages said: "This is very meaningful to disadvantaged students since they are able to improve their English through the instruction of native teachers in addition to the participation to practical activities.”

"I have experienced a lot of useful things from practical activities and currently I am very confident in my English communication ability. I would like to express my deep gratitude to the US Embassy offering this program to the students, and TVU and foreign teachers who prepare us with useful knowledge that we can apply later in life”, expressed Lam Thanh Y, a student participating in this project.   


Speaking at the closing ceremony, Ms. Diane Millar said: "The free English program for disadvantaged students has started since 2004, benefiting approximately 110,000 students in more than 85 countries. It has provided them with solid foundation in English communication skills”.


"Tra Vinh University is honored to be selected for this English project implementation to the students. This initiative helps them further pursue their higher education in the future from their acquired knowledge in this program”, said Ms. Thach Thi Dan, TVU Vice Rector.
