Launched on May 15th for 50 participants, this program has been designed to meet diverse needs of participants of different English levels and work schedules, focusing on professional communication and relationship building across cultures. Participants will develop their skills by engaging in communicative activities that replicate real life opportunities for intercultural exchanges that this year will bring.

This training course will not only contribute to the preparation for the 2017 APEC Economic Leaders’ Week and Da Nang’s foreign relations, but also contribute to enhancing and deepening the cooperation between Da Nang in particular, Vietnam in general with Australia.
