Que Kim, a Vietnamese woman living in Taiwan said “I am very pleasant to take part in the training course of teaching Vietnamese method for the second seasons.  In early 2019, Vietnamese language has become a subject at primary and secondary schools in Taiwan. More to mention, not only Vietnamese children show their hardwork in learning mother tongue, the Vietnamese language and culture also capture Taiwanese students’ interest.

Vietnamese language plays a vital role in connecting 4.5 million Vietnamese people in 109 countries and territories across the world to join hands to preserve national cultural identity as well as to maintain the bonds with mother land, especially in families which the third generations were born and lived far from their mother land. Luong Thanh Nghi believed the trainees will become the kernel that promote the movement of learning and teaching Vietnamese to actively contribute to retain and enhance the national identity in overseas Vietnamese community.  ( translated by Van Nguyen )
