“Hi everyone. I’m going to take MBA course at VIU after the ESL program. For me, VIU is the right choice to improve English as well as study the MBA course. The teachers are very helpful, enthusiastic, and friendly. At the beginning, my pronunciation was very poor; however, after 4 months, thanks to my instructor’s assistance, I am confident to communicate with others. Moreover, being a student here, you get a chance to take part in a range of interesting activities such as indoor football, basketball, skating or mountain climbing, and enjoy a variety of fantastic foods such as Chinese food, Vietnamese food, Western food. Fruits are very fresh and sweet (I love it). Welcome to VIU! I love where I learn!
