PART 3: USING ENGLISH IN BUSSINESS
3.1. The reality of using English in the business
In recent years, integrating into the global economy is the inevitable trend to
almost every country, especially, the emerging market like Vietnam. To be able to take
all the advantages of international integration, our country is in need of a competent
workforce that has not only a thorough understanding of specialized affairs but also
good foreign languages and soft skills. Thus, English is becoming increasingly
essential, serving as the key to open up opportunities in exploiting new markets and
seeking for investors with the final aim to enhance business productivity.
Minh Hang is a tourism company serving the needs of local and international
customers. As the company has expanded business relationships to many foreign
partners, English is widely used in different departments. All the staffs are required to
fluently communicate and write in English in order to accomplish the jobs in this
department including maintaining relationships with foreign investors, keeping
contacts with partners or conducting trading contracts and so on.
Minh Hang International Tourism JSC mainly does business with foreign
partners in USA, Germany, Japan, China, etc. So the use of English is the necessary
and compulsory requirement in the operation of the company; however, the usage of
English is still not really effective in this company.
With the feature that all activities in company are associated with English, most
of the staff can use English. This ability in the company ranges from general to
fluency. However, the requirement of English proficiency for the staff who is in charge
of logistics tasks such as manufacturing, cleaning and so on is not compulsory.
In the interviews for some departments such as Sales Department, the candidates
are thoroughly tested on English proficiency, especially in speaking and writing. Most
of the employees in these departments have English certificate from an intermediate or
higher; some important positions as directors, deputy directors are certified TOEIC /
IELTS. In addition, the company also encourages its employees to spend more time
studying and practicing their English skills in the evening at prestigious centers,
thereby improving the company’s quality of customer service and meeting the
integration’s demand of the market economy.

10


In fact, it is necessary to admit that the number of company’s employees who are
proficiency in English is relatively small. Most of them are only able to read
specialized English but not effectively communicate and write in such language. This
hinders a lot when there has sudden work related to English.
3.2. Suggestions to improve efficiency of using English in the company
As can be seen, English plays a vital role and serves as a powerful tool in
business activities of Minh Hang International Tourism JSC. Thus, it is urgent to
promptly draw up some plans to deal with the negative reality and enhance the
efficiency of using English. After one month of being an intern there in the Company, I
would like to suggest several measures including:
- Planning out more English courses alongside professional knowledge training
for all employees in the company. Connect with some English training centers in
Hanoi to build up some commercial English courses, focusing on teaching English
communication, negotiation, email writing, contract drafting in order to turn the
language into an effective tool for the business.
- Encouraging all staffs to communicate to their colleagues in English at the
office.
- Arranging to let employees take part in conferences on sharing learning English
experiences.
- Prioritizing candidates who are better at English in recruitments.
- Besides, Minh Hang also should arrange to let employees take part in
conferences on sharing learning English experiences held by domestic and foreign
organizations. Meanwhile, the company should increase support for its best people in
finance and improve working conditions. The company needs to apply more policies
to encourage English learning by offering higher salaries to all officers and staff so that
it is easier and more exciting for them to participate in the activities.

11


PART 4: PROPOSAL TOPIC FOR MINOR THESIS
The study on terminology in translating travel contracts from English into
Vietnamese in Minh Hang International Tourism Joint Stock Company.
Reason:
There is no doubt that, the English is language of communication between the
people with different cultures. People use it in various fields of life such as, economy,
e-commerce, medicine and aviation. In addition, it is the language which is used in the
tourism and travel. After one-month-internship in Minh Hang International Tourism
JSC, I had the opportunity to translate some international travel contracts. I realize that
translating these documents sometimes causes trouble when dealing with travel
terminologies. This is not only my own problem but also other’s. It is the main reason
inspiring me to carry out this study. Importantly, I hope that to some extent my study
can offer a thorough understanding about terminology in travel contract as well as help
Vietnamese in translation of this field terms.

12


CONCLUSION
Although Minh Hang International Tourism JSC has been established for 10
years, the company has had certain successes. The firm’s achievements have been
detailed by its increase in sales as well as profits through the years. Besides the
advantages of funds, facilities, or the activities of the potential market, the company is
dealing with many difficulties regarding human resources, marketing policies, and
expanding its sales market.
During my one month doing the internship as a member of the office staff at
Minh Hang International Tourism JSC, I gained the opportunity to apply the
knowledge obtained at university into reality and learn more about styles, attitudes,
methods of working, communication in business environment, generating valuable
experiences that help give me clear direction for my future career.
Through my experiences obtained during the one-month internship and my
background knowledge, I conducted this report in order to figure out some existing
problems at the company. I do hope that it will contribute to the unit’s development in
the upcoming time and I certainly was grateful for the internship and wish the
company well in the future.
I would love to give my sincere thanks to my beloved supervisor – Ms. Tho and
all managers and colleagues at Minh Hang company for helping me to accomplish this
report.
