The first Cambridge semester: Vinsers get used to the new study methods
After one semester of implementation, the Cambridge program – an international education program for 5 to 19 years old students worldwide, with 8 million students in 10,000 schools from 160 countries- has been excitedly welcomed by Vinsers.
Mr. Phan Anh, Principal of VinschoolSecondary School, said: “The teaching contents of the program are built with high quality but still “open” to create opportunities for creativity and collaboration in teaching and learning. Vinschool builds on the strengths of Vinsers–which are the initiatives and desire to learn from successful group projects, to focus on practicality, scientific experiment-based class, etc. The joy and excitement of the students with the new learning methods and new contents are great success that Vinschool has achieved.”
“The implementation of the Cambridge Vinschool program was wonderful,” said Mr. Sean P.O’Maonaigh, Director of the Cambridge Program at Vinschool. “All experts, teachers and officers have worked together to overcome the challenges and effectively implement the program in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The program is ongoing well, and we have successfully completed the first semester. The teachers, many of whom are foreign teachers, have adapted to the new working environment at Vinschool and built good relationships with their students. Teachers in the Vinschool Cambridge Program have made a tremendous contribution to the development of the curriculum, lectures, and provided the best learning environment for students.”
After a semester, many of our students have expressed their passion and interest in the Cambridge program. Ms. Nguyen Hoang My Anh – Grade 6B3, VinschoolSecondary School said: “Learning with the Cambridge curriculum is very fun and interesting. I do not find it difficult to study the subjects in English because the teachers are very kind and make us understand the lessons easily, I love my teachers. After a semester, my English has greatly improved. Previously I found my English was not very good but now this is my best subject at school.”
Mr. Hoang Duong Bao Anh – 6B3, VinschoolSecondary School is also very confident to share: “Subjects in the Cambridge program are taught in English, and there are new and difficult subjects but the teachers make them much easier to understand. This valuable experience can help me feel familiar with study abroad in the future and better integrate into a new environment. I can self-study at home, if there are any difficulties, I only need to ask my parents for references without any reminders from them because I have learned how to study proactively. Now, I can arrange time for all school work, extra-curricular activities, and hanging out with my parents and friends.
