Language course opens for overseas Vietnamese in US


Ha Noi — A Vietnamese language course for Vietnamese students at the City College of San Francisco and San Francisco State University in the US kicked off in Ha Noi yesterday.

The course, for which 19 students have enrolled, was organised by the Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs (COVA), and is designed to boost understanding of Viet Nam’s history and culture - as well as Vietnamese language skills.

Students will visit President Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum and the Museum of Ethnology. They will also travel to Sapa, in the northern mountainous province of Lao Cai, to learn about Vietnamese ethnic groups.

Derick Earl Brown is visiting Viet Nam for the first time. "I am very happy to learn about the history and culture of Viet Nam," he said.

This is the third Vietnamese language course held by COVA for expat Vietnamese. The first was held in 2005 for Vietnamese students in France and the second in 2006 for Vietnamese students from the US. — VNS
