The demand for highly educated students with multilingual skills, particularly in English, has grown out of Vietnam's integration into globalization. Despite the government’s efforts to raise the English level, Vietnam is still in the low proficiency category. This research sought to know the following: the profiles of the teacher- respondents and whether they were factors to the learners’ verbal competence, the teacher-respondents perceptions of the level of students’ oral and written competence, and if there was a significant difference on the respondents’ perceptions of the students’ oral and written communication when grouped according to their profile variables. The ten respondents accomplished the researcher-made survey instrument comprising of two parts. Part 1 carried the respondents’ eight profile variables. Part 2 had a 5-point Likert scale questionnaire. For data analysis, the statistical tools employed were frequency/percentage, mean/standard deviation, and t-test/analysis of variance. Results revealed that the respondents’ profiles generally, had no bearing on their perception of students’ verbal competence. Students were perceived to be in the intermediate level of oral response and comprehension, but were poor in vocabulary and idioms. In writing, students were in pre-intermediate level. Lastly, there was no significant difference on the respondents’ perceptions when grouped according to their profile variables. Recommendations given included continuous professional growth, curriculum improvement, and further investigation of correlation between student competence and quality of instruction.
