Osaka JALT:

English Teaching Development in Vietnam

Date: Saturday, November 17th, 2001 Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Speaker: Nguyen thi Hoai An, a featured speaker at JALT 2001

Nguyen thi Hoai An will talk about the dramatic changes that English teaching has made in Vietnam. While relying totally on textbooks provided by the Ministry of Education in the 1970s, English teachers and learners in Vietnam are now enjoying a much wider variety of resources. There are signs that English teaching has been impressively enhanced, although teaching and testing methodologies and facilities still need to be improved. Nguyen thi Hoai An will relate personal and professional experiences to her developing understanding of learner autonomy, and encourage participants to make similar connections. About the speaker: Nguyen thi Hoai An has worked with University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES), first as an Oral Examiner, then as a Consultant and Regional Team Leader (Speaking Tests). She is a featured speaker at the PAC3/JALT2001 Conference.
