TTW project focuses on teaching foreign languages, especially English, which is known as global language. The main objective of the project is to remove language barrier, improve knowledge and intellectuality of Vietnamese youth. Specific objectives: • Improve English ability of students, main human resource in the near future • Improve English ability for venerable groups in society, toward a society that more equitable and civilized In the new era, English has been an international language used in exchanging and cooperating between countries over the world. Globalization has been happening and going along with significant growth of Information Technology, which makes the word become flatter, and the “flatter” the world becomes, the more importance studying English is. However, the fees for an English courses, especially courses lectured by foreign people at English centers are high.
