Moscow (VNA) – Russian students participated in a contest in Moscow on February 22 on Vietnam, its people and culture.

The students are learning Vietnamese at the Institute of Practical Oriental Studies, the Russian State University of the Humanities and the Moscow State Institute of International Relations.

Russian teachers of Vietnamese, representatives from the Vietnamese Embassy in Russia and Vietnamese students pursuing education in the European country attended the event.

The contest offered an opportunity for Russian students to explore the Southeast Asian nation’s customs and culture. They must answer in Vietnamese.

The activity helped Russian students better their Vietnamese, understand more about Vietnam, and tighten the friendship between the two countries, said organisers.-VNA
