According to the HCMC Department of Education and Training, 20 foreign language centers to provide English native speaker teachers to schools have to post their names on the Department’s website where parents can follow.
These teachers are teaching Math and Science in English under a pilot program of HCMC. The program has been carried out in primary schools.
English native speaker teachers in the program organize activities in classroom to help children to understand rules of natural phenomenon and connect knowledge in class with real situation in life.
Through three year implementation, the program has been taught 6,000 students in 28 elementary schools in 10 districts.
