Conclusion

Threats + Many English centers, ACET is example, focus on Academic English, IELTS or TOEFL preparation ï Apollo lose customers in this training + The market has a lot of English Centers => High competition => Advantage need to develop and effectively use.

According to the assessment in the previous pages, it is obvious that Apollo's main target is on young learners and many parents prefer to let their beloved children to study English at Apollo center rather than at any other centers. However, Apollo doesn't pay so much attention to other cources as for children's education, so in other segments, such as IELTS preparation and English for adults e.t.c., it lack of proffesionalization and therefore Apollo loses the older learners. Therefore, it is needed for Apollo to start seriously suggesting about customers-adults.
