The one skill I would like my students to have is to frequently reflect on their progress. It is crucial that students are encouraged to take charge of their own learning, to be aware of their strengths and weaknesses. This will allow them to acquire other skills more effectively beyond their time at YOLA.

Vietnamese students today are quite dependent on technology, especially computers, even in simple mathematical calculations. This makes them lazy in thinking. At YOLA, I teach my students to solve the math problems of the SAT easily without having to use a computer.
While grades and exam scores are important, those do not define who they are as people.
I direct my students to build a passion for language and they will realize that knowing English is not enough to score high, more importantly, is to know how to make use of it to develop their personality and ability in a unique way.
Take responsibility for your present - be in control of your future.
Sapere Aude – Dare to Know! I want to show my students that it takes tremendous courage to learn since the pursuit of knowledge is one of the greatest human endeavors!
If I could teach my students only one thing, it would be that while us teachers at Yola can teach them valuable information and inspire them to achieve their dreams, experience is actually the best teacher, so they shouldn't be afraid to go out in the world and try new things, regardless of how intimidating these things may seem.
The one thing I would love to teach my students is that taking steps creativity and self-discipline will get one far, but the understanding of why they are even taking the steps is what will drive them to the success they desire.
I will teach them these two values: kindness and generosity. With these values internalised and translated into action, my students will enjoy more fulfilled and meaningful lives.
If I had only one thing to teach my students, I would teach them about patience. Children usually lack patience in doing things, which hinder them from achieving massive success in the future because they tend to give up quite easily after few trials. We, adults, also have a hard time practising patience sometimes. Therefore, it would be better if this trait is embeded in the young generations at an early age.
Put all of their passion into what they are doing.
