English Discoveries Online (EDO) website launch on the online publications of Tuoi Tre Newspaper

 The Launching Ceremony of English Discoveries Online (EDO) on the online publications of Tuoi Tre Newspaper took place on June 10th 2014, in Ho Chi Minh City. The new page, called Elearning and accessible at http://elearning.tuoitre.vn, was set up as an online publication of Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper, under an agreement it signed last year with IIG Vietnam, the officially authorized representative of the ETS.

 

Elearning will provide the latest interactive learning methods, with both blended-learning and distant-learning models of implementation, creating an ideal studying environment that saves time and at a low price. The website will also provide other useful English learning tools designed by the ETS to fit the users’ purposes, such as TOEIC OLPC and ESP (English For Specific Purposes). Readers can select the products on the site and pay online to receive a user account for these products (with many options for different courses). Furthermore, readers can access the rich sources on the website to find lessons, instructions, English learning tips, and especially the highly interactive Q&A corner where learners can have their questions answered and explained in detail. The whole website content is updated regularly by Tuoi Tre Newspaper’s editorial board and IIG Vietnam’s leading experts.

“Elearning will give students, skilled workers and professionals an opportunity to learn English without having to attend actual classes”, said Mr. Tang Huu Phong, Deputy Editor in Chief, Tuoi Tre Newspaper.

“Higher education needs to adapt to the changing study culture of young Vietnamese. Therefore, I highly appreciate the collaboration between Tuoi Tre and IIG Vietnam in making an online English learning website. There is a fact that many graduates do not meet the English requirements for working; hence, we are looking forward to use English Discoveries Online to improve English skills of 26,000 students in the University of Technical Education, and create qualified human resources to contribute to our country development.”, said AP. Dr. Do Van Dung, Principal, University of Technical Education Ho Chi Minh City

“Tuoi Tre newspaper has a huge advantage in promoting the website as it can approach a larger number of readers, especially those who are in need of learning English.”, said Mr. Doan Hong Nam, president of IIG Vietnam.
