I’ve been studying here for around 6 months and have made large improvements in my Vietnamese. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and my teachers have been very knowledgeable and dedicated. If you’re serious and want to start learning Vietnamese I would highly recommend VLS!
I highly recommend VLS for all your Vietnamese language learning needs! However, I want to talk specifically about the new weekly topic/question-based lessons that VLS just started offering. I think VLS calls them “Content-based Lessons”. Every month there is a new set of topics (four in total), which for the most part so far have been guiding questions about different issues like whether or not age is a major factor in relationships or people’s varying definitions of success. You can sign up for all of the lessons for a given month or just the ones that pique your interest. Each lesson is scheduled for two hours, which is time well spent in my opinion, especially because the class sizes are small (typically 2-4 students). This means that each student has ample time to practice sharing their thoughts on the given topic in Vietnamese and to ask plenty of questions. Normally I’m not a big fan of group classes when I’m trying to study a language, but these lessons have been enjoyable so far. It’s really nice to have the opportunity to hone in on a specific topic or set of questions and to hear other folks’ opinions in real time. These lessons are great if you want more practice discussing specific issues in Vietnamese and/or if you want to learn sets of vocabulary or structures that are commonly used to talk about a certain topic. That being said, since these lessons often require students to talk at length, these lessons are more suited for intermediate or advanced level learners. If this sounds like something you might be interested in, you should sign up for a lesson!
VLS is truly a hidden gem. As a German-Vietnamese I’ve had multiple attempts to improve my Vietnamese but it’s never been quite success until I started lessons with VLS. The environment at the center is always very warm and welcoming. Through different events outside the classroom, you get to meet the teachers, staff and other students. It really feels like a family. I’ve had classes in a classroom setting as well as 1 on 1. Both experiences have been incredibly enriching. Lessons go way beyond the Vietnamese language. I’ve learned so much about Vietnamese culture, history and ultimately VLS taught me a lot about my heritage. Learning Vietnamese at VLS is a wonderful experience and I can highly recommend it.
Dear VLS Team, I would like to thank you very much for the online language course. My teacher Cô Lai (a thousand thanks to Cô Lai) always tries so hard to make the lessons warm, individual and on a very high level. She is doing a great job!!I was born in Germany, but my parents are from Vietnam. I see myself as a „German-Vietnamese“ and sometimes it is difficult to be in touch with my own roots as an over-seas Vietnamese, when one is surrounded by a very different mainstream society, like Germany.
However, the key for every culture is the language, especially the mother tongue. I myself and many of my friends have made the experience that it can be very difficult to learn the mother tongue, because often the right offer is missing. I felt that I could speak Vietnamese, but my reading and writing skills are not yet that good. Every time I held a Vietnamese textbook in my hand to learn by myself, I was very demotivated because the gap between my speaking and reading level was too big. At VLS the teachers respond perfectly to this difficulty and adapt to you 100%. I have already told many of my friends about my online lessons. It’s really great: although I’m here in Germany, I still have a connection to Vietnam every week and I am finally learning my mother tongue. I can really recommend VLS 1000%!
Great school! Friendly staff and teachers. They do their best to accommodate and help all students. During the pandemic and lockdown, I was given the chance to change my class from F2F to online, which helped me a great deal. Thanks, VLS!
VLS is a must-visit private school if you want to study Vietnamese. Not only does it have a systematic curriculum to improve language skills, but you can lead the class to your liking. I started studying without knowing Vietnamese at all, but now, after six months, I can confidently communicate with Vietnamese people. The staff, teachers, and teaching methods are all satisfied. I will continue to study Vietnamese with VLS!^^
I cannot recommend VLS enough. The team here have cultivated a great learning environment to help those on their Vietnamese learning journey. For me, VLS met my key criteria:
- Structured lesson content.
- Holistic learning approach with focus given to speaking, listening reading and writing.
- Most importantly, a supportive environment that genuinely gets me to look forward to attending class each day thereby keeping me motivated.
Looking back 2 months on and 80 class hours later, I am truly grateful for choosing to study here, especially for the efforts of my teacher Co Hoa. Thank you to all those that have helped me. See you again soon!
Skilled & knowledgeable teachers, friendly staff, nice facilities, and convenient location.I’ve been studying with VLS off and on for a couple years and have stayed loyal because of all these things. They also offer extra activities and social events which are nice.They aren’t the cheapest Vietnamese school you’ll find, but that’s because they provide quality.
VLS is the best Vietnamese language program. The staff is super friendly and professional. They give you a very clear direction on how to improve your Vietnamese through their courses in very practical training. The schedule of the course is also flexible. rất tốt !!!
I just finished studying online with cô Tâm VLS. I have learn a lot from her and enjoy everytime study with her. She also have the good technique how to remember the vocabulary. I really happy to study Vietnamese online by VLS especially when only can stay at home with COVID-19 situation. If you are the one who want to study Vietnamese then should try study online with VLS.
