Time for a spell check

Update: November, 11/2014 - 10:11

University degrees handed out to 18 students in the English Faculty at Tay Nguyen University are a bit embarrassing for students - and the university itself.

Under the heading "Degree classification": Are the words "verry good".

Let's hope the future employers of the students went to the same university, otherwise, things could look "verry bad" for the hopefuls.

Nguyen Van Hoa, head of the university's training division, told Tuoi tre (Youth) newspaper that the mistake was the university's fault.

He also admitted it was not the first time something similar had happened. Verry not good!

Parking for the privileged

At the main door of Hoan Kiem District Police in Ha Noi, which is at the crossroads of Le Thai To - Ba Trieu - Trang Thi - Hang Khay, there are signs banning any parking by bicycles, cars and motorbikes.

The signs were erected by the Ha Noi Department of Transport, the Hoan Kiem District Police and the Hang Trong Ward Police.

Despite the warning signs, every day a long line of cars, including vehicles from Hoan Kiem Police, still park along Trang Thi Street.

Some car owners even leave notes on their windscreen saying words to the effect: "Please call me if needed. Thanks."

Apparently, the car owners are not fined or given any warnings - even if they park there all day. This upsets the locals no end.

Locals claim police leave notes on their vehicles ordering them to move within 15 minutes or face a fine. — VNS
