HA NOI (VNS) — The Education and Training Ministry said yesterday that it would organise the inspection and assessment of English teachers or those using English to teach at non-State colleges and universities.

The inspections will be held next month to help schools review the English skills of their teachers so that schools can make plans to train them further. Tests will be given to assess speaking, reading, listening and writing skills through tests.

Teachers who have sat previous foreign language tests conducted by the Education Ministry will be exempt.

Those who obtained bachelors' degree or higher in English-speaking countries or who can present valid certificates, including IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, showing satisfactory results will also be exempt.

Lectures who are near retirement will also not be asked to sit. — VNS
