Thắng Nguyễn, senior student and his experience with Vol. 1 (Starter)
Being a typical student here in Vietnam, Thang has never focused on learning English during his secondary and high school journey. However, after going to university, Thang has realized the necessity of English but the tuition fee in English centers in Vietnam are unaffordable when compared to the meager budget. So, he has to put off learning English.
Currently a senior student, Thang finds his lack of English skills a real obstacle for him when it comes to recruitment, oftentimes also feeling inferior to other candidates. The senior then turned to ELSA Oxford Business Result, Vol.1 (Starter) as a tool to at least qualify himself.
Cramming with ELSA for a consecutive 3-month duration, Thang is now able to communicate at a basic level, although there is still mispronunciation. Thang said that he would not have been able to speak English if it had not been for ELSA. Now, Thang is on the quest of landing a dream job of his.
