Born in a family with English language teaching tradition, Phuong Nghi was lucky enough to have a chance to learn English from the age of five. Despite her lack of enrolment in any courses at any language center due to financial reason, she still succeeded in passing the entrance exam into Gia Dinh High School in 2012 thanks to her good knowledge in grammar and vocabulary and then, was chosen to learn in D1, a proficiency class for students gifted in English.
