Established in 1998, the Faculty of Foreign Languages is responsible for teaching English, Chinese, and bilingual English-Chinese in a four-year program (Bilingual Chinese-English programme- 4.5 years). It is also in charge of English for Communication classes for non-English majors of the other faculties in the University of Ton Duc Thang.

 

 

 The Faculty of Foreign Languages is one of the largest faculties of Ton Duc Thang University. The strength of the faculty is a proper, scientific and comprehensive training program which focuses on linguistic knowledge as an autonomous system and as socially-embedded, four skills of language use, and especially job-orientation.
