I am a business professional with 35 years working in international trade. I hold an Economics degree from Sydney University and have travelled in Asia over many years. When I decided to learn Vietnamese as a personal interest I had the good fortune to commence lessons with Nguyen Thanh Xuan Vi. Xuan Vi is an experienced teacher - organised, well-prepared and totally professional. Most apparent though is her passion and commitment as an educator. Her lessons are tailored to her student’s knowledge and abilities and her qualifications and capacities ensure she is able to provide instruction to any level required. My progress has far exceeded my expectations as a result of her approach and I so can thoroughly recommend Xuan Vi to any prospective student of the Vietnamese language.
