 Some 50,000 residents in the southern coastal province of Khanh Hoa will get support from a five-year project to learn English. The project, which was launched on January 9 by the Khanh Hoa Provincial People's Committee and Vingroup, is expected to contribute to the development of the province, particularly in terms of tourism.

The project will be carried out between 2022-2027 in an effort to develop a learning society, popularising English to all residents in the province.

The project will be piloted in Nha Trang City and Cam Lam District in the first period from 2022-2023. During this period, 150 English speaking clubs will be set up to help certain groups including students, civil servants, owners of small businesses and workers to study English through mobile apps.

It is expected that 50,000 people will have access to the mobile apps to study English during the first year, and 500 volunteers will join in teaching English at the clubs. More clubs will be set up in the following years while the project expands to more localities in the province.

VinUni University will be responsible for finding suitable text books and recruiting teachers and volunteers for the project. VinUni will co-operate with Nha Trang University and Khanh Hoa University find the teachers and volunteers who will help run the English clubs. 

Khanh Hoa was among the first localities to re-open for tourists and become a locality with the fastest tourism recovery in the country. 

According to the provincial party’s action programme, tourism would be a spearhead economic sector in the 2021-25 period. The province targets to attract 11 million visitors, including five million international visitors, by 2025.
