Update: November, 24/2013 - 12:00
Some students found a clever way to thank their teachers.

They made a Facebook page. On the page, they put thank you notes.

They also put videos and photos to get more people to LIKE the page.

All the students who LIKED the page said thank you to their teachers too!

GLOSSARY

 

A group of 20 students, including a film personality, has set up a Facebook page to pay tribute to teachers on Teacher's Day, November 20.

 

A film personality is somebody who is famous because they have been in movies.

 

When you pay tribute to someone, you say thank you to them in front of other people.

 

Led by Le Hoang Thach, 25, also Viet Nam marketing director of an international contest to make films within 48 hours, it has worked hard for a month to also create a photo album and video clip to post on the page to solicit "thanks" from young people for their teachers.

A director is someone who is in charge of doing a job. Marketing is when you use things like advertising to make people want to buy something.

 

To create something means to make something from scratch.

 

A video clip is a short part of a longer video.

 

If you post something on a website page, you place it there so that others can see it.

 

If you solicit something, you ask for it or try to get it.

 

"Thay co oi! Em cam on" (Dear teacher! Thank you) at https://www.facebook.com/ThayCoOi has got 44,000 ‘like's' from students who have also been exchanging and sharing memories of school besides saying thanks to their teachers.

An exchange is when you give something, and then you get something back.

 

There are clips featuring interviews of teachers and a touching story involving teachers and students.

An interview is when one person asks questions, and the other person answers them.

 

When something is touching, it makes people feel very sad or very happy.

 

There is a contest calling for students to share clips and music clips made by themselves to express their gratitude to teachers.

A contest is another word for a competition.

 

Gratitude means to be thankful. When you express your gratitude, you show that you are thankful.

 

It was Thach's brainchild to start with, and the others offered to join on Facebook.

 

A brainchild is a clever idea that comes from one person.
