Language Link has been a leading player in the global ELT industry for over forty years, and Language Link Vietnam has been operating in Vietnam for more than twenty years. As an established and trusted educational organisation, Language Link Vietnam aims to reinforce its position as the market leader in innovative and quality academic programmes and helping learners achieve outstanding academic results.

Our mission is to help students and trainees get measurably high achievements at school and in all English tests and examinations, to provide an innovative, effective, and efficient learning solution to learners in the workplace, and to help students get into elite secondary and high schools and universities, and for adult learners to make progress in their careers.

Language Link works closely with the Ministry of Education and Training and the Hanoi Department of Education and Training to promote English learning in Vietnamese schools, and has organised the Hanoi English Olympics for the past thirteen years.

Schools Link started collaborating with local public and private primary, secondary, and high schools in Hanoi ten years ago, delivering programmes based on guidelines set by the Ministry of Education and Training. Schools Link has enjoyed remarkable growth over the last decade and we now work with around seventy tier one schools across the city, with over 130 teachers and 250 teaching assistants bringing our English language training to more than 30,000 students, many of whom would otherwise not be able to access high-quality language training.

The Schools Link Primary Product (SLPP) is an in-house coursebook designed to consolidate, supplement, and extend the Tieng Anh series of English language textbooks created by the Vietnamese Ministry of Education. We currently use SLPP materials in Grades 3 to 5, and will be rolling out books for Grades 1 and 2 in the future.
