In the pandemic context of COVID-19, all universities in Viet Nam have paid great attention to implementing E-teaching activities. The study focuses on evaluating the efficiency of E-teaching activities on speaking skills for second-year students of English major at University of Foreign Language Studies ​​- The University of Da Nang (UFLS-UDN). A survey was conducted in a group of 15 teachers and 100 students of UFLS-UDN to figure out what the reality is. The findings indicated that the information technology infrastructure system of the school meets the needs of online teaching. Most teachers mastered E-teaching equipment, especially supporting software, applying teaching methods suitable to the online teaching model to integrate polarize learners' learning activities. Moreover, most students are self-consciously participating in the form of E-teaching and doing exercises as well as answering questions posed by teachers in the learning process. However, some teachers are still conscious of implementing this duty or spending time to draft lessons. The research proposes suitable and feasible solutions to improve E-teaching activities at UFLS-UDN, particularly at universities, faculties of foreign languages in Viet Nam in general.
