YOLA was founded by 3 co-founders in 2009. YOLA provides kids English training (5 -10 years), junior English training (10 -15 years), foundation English training (16 years+) and academic test preparation via 11 training centers in HCMC and 2 in Hanoi. The company focuses on academic English, including test preparation courses for TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, SSAT and GMAT/GRE, helping students get high scores for these tests, rather than focusing on communicative English.

After eight years, YOLA has successfully trained more than 30,000 students, with over 10,000 students currently studying abroad. YOLA’s alumni are excellent students who have since been admitted to top universities in the world such as Harvard, Stanford, Yale, and Cornell. 

With the investment of MEF III, YOLA has already opened five new campuses in Ho Chi Minh City, which raised the total number of YOLA campuses to 13 nationwide.
