An inspection by Nghe An Provincial People's Council has showed various problems in the operation of foreign languages teaching centres in the area.

According to the inspection team, there are 76 training facilities in the central province with 616 teachers and 78,768 students who are mostly teaching and learning English.


However, many facilities are operating without licenses or expired licenses like the Scots English Australia, Happy Kids DT, and Kids Today, the inspection report said.

Besides some training centres do not have proper classrooms and teaching and learning equipment. Local homes, warehouses, libraries are being transformed into temporary classrooms which lack of proper teaching equipment and do not ensure fire safety.

The inspection also revealed lax management from local education authorities in monitoring the operation of foreign languages teaching centres in the area. The provincial Department of Education and Training reported that there are 35 centres in Vinh City, while the report from the city's education and training department said the number was 39.

The provincial Department of Education and Training reported that there are 35 foreign teachers at local centres, while the Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs said that 61 foreign teachers have registered to teach English in the area.

An official said that this explains why the province's department knows nothing about some centres that are operating without licenses. And the quality of English training here has also been increasingly complained about.

In 2017, Nghe An Education and Training Department suspended two centres including the Olympia Enghlish and the Blue Sky and gave warnings and required some other centres to upgrade facilities.
