THE HEART OF THE FOUNDERS
We established the Apollo English Centre in 1995 with the mission of training the young Vietnamese generation to become global citizens to promote prosperity and help them change the world for the better. For us, the biggest reward is seeing people's lives become better thanks to the efforts and enthusiasm of the talented teachers at Apollo. We hope to be able to help more students at Apollo English "Where the best become better".
