Ms. Emma Collins said, “Each student follows an exciting program designed by expert teachers at the appropriate level, across the four language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing.”
All classes are conducted by native English speaking teachers with internationally recognized university degrees, who have experience in teaching English as a second language, she said.
The English center targets at children aged 8 to 15. It has so far granted almost 300 scholarships worth VND1 million each (about US$62.2) to pupils in Ho Chi Minh City and they will attend classes soon, according to her.
As for the children, tuition for a 10-week course is US$165 for two classes per week or US$247 for three classes per week. That for a 20-week course is US$320 or US$477, respectively. The class size is limited to 18 learners.
Ms. Collins said her center uses assessment and reporting procedures based on Australian national standards, accredited by the Australian Council of Educational Research.
The Australian International School Saigon, which also opened in August, is located at 21 Pham Ngoc Thach Street, District 3, a former campus of the RMIT International University Vietnam.
“The school is proud to be offering a high standard of education and a high quality English language program to students in Ho Chi Minh City,” said Mr. Chris Faisandier, general director and principal of the school.
