In Vietnam, it's very difficult for English teachers to meet
the international standards, and it would be not easy for the Ministry of
Education and Training to standardize the English teaching staff.
Meanwhile, experts believe that meeting international
standards should not be an imperative requirement. Analysts have also agreed
with Hung that the goals of the foreign language teaching program by 2020 prove
to be overly high, while the conditions for teaching English in Vietnam remain
The teachers and students in rural and remote areas are also
required to speak standard English, while they may not have any opportunity to
meet and talk to any foreigners in their lives.
