Corporate Training and Projects


We offer a wide range of special English programs including: Communicative English, Business English, and Academic English (TOEFL, IELTS, and TOEIC). In addition, we also tailor courses to meet the specific requirements of clients and the needs of course participants.
In order to provide clients with the highest quality of trainings, SEAMEO RETRAC incorporates the following activities in designing and implementing corporate training courses:


Our corporate training consultants will work with clients to create customized solutions to assist clients in achieving their specific objectives and goals.


SEAMEO RETRAC has a core faculty of approximately 150 experienced Native English speaking and Vietnamese instructors, who have university degrees and graduate and/or post graduate qualifications in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) or TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). Of this highly qualified, experienced and motivated team, instructors who have strong background and substantial experience in teaching professional adults within the corporate sector will be selected for the programs.


The Communicative Approach combining the best traditional methodology wherever applicable will be used to make the learning stimulating, motivating, and effective. Students’ learning capacity will be further enhanced through the application of Information Communication Technology in teaching (i.e., LCD, lessons in PowerPoint presentations and through ISB, and relevant software for language teaching and learning). Learners will also be provided with opportunities to study with tutors and/or independently in the multimedia computer lab, library, and self-access learning center to practice the language skills and increase vocabulary

Training location

The course will be run either at SEAMEO RETRAC or at the students' institutions.


A systematic evaluation and assessment scheme is set up, integral to the structure and successful completion of the Program. Assessment is carried out in three forms:

Pre-course Assessment (Placement test)

This assessment, including a written test plus an oral interview conducted before the program commencement, is to:
  • determine the learners' current level of linguistic and communicative competence;
  • help identify the learners’ weaknesses; and
  • provide a benchmark for improvement over the period of the course.

On-going Assessment

This type of evaluation aims to measure the learners’ on-going progress and, more importantly, identify the teaching and learning areas that need more focus and/or necessary adjustment for improvement and is performed in two parallel components:
  • The course instructors will observe, record and evaluate:
    • the learners’ participation and performance in classroom activities and
    • the learners’ commitment and responsibility in the course
    • the learners’ study results through each learning period of the course or after finishing each learning skills.
  • The Course Coordinator will:
    • conduct regular class observation to evaluate the teachers’ and learners’ performance
    • assure that the course objectives are met.
    • have separate meetings with the learners, the instructors and the employer to receive feedback and provide continual diagnosis of the learners specific needs

Final Assessment

A final exam administered at the end of each course will serve as an official indicator of the learners’ achievement. The purpose of this achievement test is to identify whether and where progress has been made in terms of the language learning goals and objectives.


Each student, who successfully completes a course (i.e. who meets all the given requirements and the rules of the course), receives a Certificate of Achievement from SEAMEO RETRAC.

Report system

The following reports will be sent to the clients for their information when necessary:
Placement test report: a detailed report on the learners’ language proficiency level which helps decide the appropriate language level of the class learners will be placed in.
Interim report: a report that includes such details as learner attendance and their language progress.
Final or End-of-course report: Upon completion of the course, a comprehensive report is compiled based on the program instructors’ assessment of the learners’ performance and on individual contributions made by each learner throughout the program toward their own progress.
