EnglishWhat do our students say?

Do Quang Vinh – IELTS 8.0 IELTS
IELTS Part-time Student
The teachers at BUV and the syllabus really focused on helping students conquering the IELTS exam. It was incredibly helpful attending classes at BUV with those mentors. The exercises and activities aimed to refine our comprehensive and productive skills. The extracurricular activities were amazing as well. Besides working on the workbooks and mock tests, teachers were skilled in identifying areas of weakness and working with us on them. They altered the curriculum effectively to best fit students’ abilities.

Pham Van Anh
IELTS Intensive Student
The teaching methods of the BUV teachers was the thing I was most impressed with. Their methods are very innovative, focusing on the interaction between teachers and students, which helped me make incredible progress in my English ability. I liked the way that BUV teachers were dedicated in helping us enhance our own strengths and improve weaknesses.
English
Hoang Bang An
IELTS Intensive Student
I personally felt very satisfied with the course. That is evidenced through my learning results. Thanks to BUV IELTS Courses and thanks to those scores I can now study in an international university environment. The course also gave me many other soft skills such as teamwork and public speaking in front of many people which have been invaluable in my undergraduate studies. What I experienced while studying was a very fun and comfortable environment which was focused on the skills we needed. Perhaps the most stressful day was the last day when we had to take the final exam, but I left the exam room confident in using the strategies developed throughout the course.
