The value of the TOEIC certificate as an international-standard measure for English-language abilities has been confirmed for a long time. Khanh Nhimeticulously practiced until she was in her fourth year, when she finally tested her abilities in practice and became TOEIC ambassador after sitting the test for just the first time.
“I love the English language,” Khanh Nhi explains. “I’m very proud and elated with this meaningful title, and I’m lucky to get this high result after sitting the test the first time. Although it was my first time, I didn’t feel lost at the novelty, as I had trained the habit of making test exams to acquaint myself with the format and the time allotted for the test and to train reflexes for the test. Every week, I spent two hours on making test exams and actively correcting them. I found that way my scores improved considerably.”
At the January 2022 TOEIC Ambassador appointment ceremony, an IIG Vietnam representative awarded her with a TOEIC Ambassador certificate, a scholarship consisting of a Gmetrix account for practicing MOS office informatics tests, and a souvenir. Every month, based on TOEIC results and IIG’s evaluation criteria, IIG Vietnam selects onlyone students andone employed personin the entirety of Vietnam to appoint Vietnam TOEIC Ambassador.
With the meaningful message “Conquering TOEIC - Expanding your Career”, the program intends to encourage young people to practice the English language.
Stable employment even before graduation
Nhi enrolled in the DTU-PSU Tourism and Hotel Management major, an advanced program in partnership with Pennsylvania State University, one of the five leading universities Business Administration in the USA. Most of the subjects is taught in English by highly qualified Vietnamese and foreign lecturers.
“Studying a PSU-standard program, I have an opportunity to develop myself and improve my foreign-language, especially for specialized English,” Khanh Nhi affirms. “That makes me very confident when speaking with foreigners or when working at the Vinpearl Luxury Danang hotel.”

“The knowledge I acquired at DTU is finding a huge lot of application in my current professional work,” Khanh Nhi explains. “At first I was a bit confused due it all being new to me, but I quickly got used to it due to the foundation I had and to the good service mindset I acquired studying at university. I feel lucky to have acquired what I need and to have been trained in-depth in professional skills.”
