Your impact

English proficiency in Vietnam has dropped to ‘low’ with a score of 51.57 on the EF English Proficiency Index (EPI). With a drop of 1.55, this is the first time Vietnam has been listed as low-proficient. Besides that, Vietnam has dropped from 41st out of 88 nations in 2018, to 52nd among 100 nations. 80% of Vietnamese students scored under average on their English university exam. This needs to change, and your help can have an impact on many people!

Going to Vietnam will give you the chance to explore their culture. Learn to cook local dishes or teach yourself the Vietnamese language (and did you know French is the second language for many Vietnamese?). Their cultural value system is also very inspiring to discover, with humanity and harmony as their key pillars. Respect and family as well are very important there. Maybe you are about to experience this yourself?
