Medical English (Med Eng) allows medical students to better prepare for their future career as well as exchange their knowledge with the world. This article points out some methods that can be used to teach this subject for medical students in Vietnam, in which the author believes that an appropriate class and curriculum should be designed so as to increase the interactions of students in the class, thus improving their speaking skill. All the while, new technologies should be used to encourage them to self-study.
