National Geographic Learning is delighted to
announce that Voices is coming to Vietnam!

With Voices, learners use English as a tool for global communication and are encouraged to celebrate connections among people from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds. Carefully sequenced activities featuring real world content fully prepare learners for interaction and guide them to develop their voice in English. Voices is a seven-level, integrated-skills program for adults and young adults that enables instructors to teach with confidence in all classrooms. Supported by a common-sense lesson progression and The Voices Professional Development Video Program, teachers have the learning and teaching materials they need to deliver engaging courses both online and in person.
