A: When do children go to the primary school?

Task 2. Work in groups. Talk about the school education system in Vietnam, using the information from Task 1. (Làm việc nhóm. Hãy nói về hệ thống giáo dục ở Việt Nam, sử dụng thông tin từ Bài tập 1.)
In Vietnam, the pre-school period is completly optional. Children can either go to nursery, kindergarten or not.
However, going to primary and secondary schools is surely compulsory. They go to primary school at the age of 6 and it takes them 5 years. Later, they go to lower secondary school when they are 11. They attend lower secondary for 4 years. At the age of 15, they go to upper secondary school and it lasts 3 years. After finishing secondary education, they take the National examination for GCSE.
Task 3. Work in groups. Talk about the similarities and differences between the school system in Vietnam and that in England. (Làm việc nhóm. Nói về sự tương đồng và khác biệt giữa hệ thống giáo dục phổ thông ở Việt Nam và ở Anh.)
A: I'm not sure, but I think there are certain similarities and differences between the school system in Vietnam and that in England.
B: I think so, too. But what differences do you know?
C: As I know, first both systems have the same three levels of education, and the starting age of schooling.
D: But in England, as I know, there isn't such a strict and unreasonable rule of starling age of schooling.
A: What do you mean?
D: OK. As I'm told, in England a pupil can attend a class if he or she has enough capacity as required.
B: About the differences I see there are a lot.
C: For example?
B: The academic year. In Vietnam there are only two periods of schooling in a year, each of which lasts about five months or so.
A: I see. In England an academic year is divided into three by season.
D: And one more difference: in England students needn't take any exam to enter the upper secondary schools.
C: But we should not ignore the most major difference: the tuition fee for nursery, primary and secondary educations. For these three levels, people do not pay any tuition in England. I mean they are totally free and compulsory.
B: Oh, really?
