Corporate Testimonial:

Images of Vietnamese Language Studies Saigon (VLS), Ho Chi Minh City•  "Personally, I find Vietnamese a tough language to study but VLS’s individually focused and flexible training approach has really opened a door for me into Vietnamese society. Whether chatting with a taxi driver, discovering the age of a Cholon temple or injecting some levity into the work meeting, even basic Vietnamese languages skills add tremendously to your time in Vietnam."
