More importantly, you are supposed to join hands in cultivating and supplying Binh Duong Province’s student generations with increasingly high-quality education programs that will gradually meet the urgent local needs of English language teaching in years to come. In addition, IEI’s training programs are specially designed in accordance with the standard of Cambridge International Examinations and our curricula are suitable to those candidates who achieve at least B2 level as well as further enable them to take international tests in an effective and confident way. On this occasion, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the Board of Directors and the coordinated offices of Binh Duong Province’s Department of Education and Training for putting your trust on us and choosing IEI as one of your close partners on the pathway of improving the English language capacity for local teachers, setting a solid foundation for similar projects in the near future. Once again, I wish you all good health, happiness and success in life.”
