Fourteen overseas Vietnamese teachers will have a chance to improve their skills of teaching Vietnamese language when attending a course opened in Hanoi on September 26.

The course, the first of its kind, is coorganised by the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese under the Foreign Ministry, and the Ministry of Education and Training.

The teachers are working in such countries and territories as Czech, Germany, Laos, Thailand and Taiwan which see a high demand of learning Vietnamese language.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Dr. Nguyen Thanh Son, Deputy Foreign Minister and head of the Committee, said the demand has become increasingly essential among over 4 million overseas Vietnamese people who are living and working in more than 100 countries and territories across the world.
During the course, the teachers will share professional skills, attend Vietnamese language lessons at several schools in Vietnam and make field trips to Vietnamese language research facilities.

They are scheduled to take part in a seminar on the role of the press in improving the efficiency of teaching and learning Vietnamese language among overseas Vietnamese community on October 22.

They will have a chance to learn more about their homeland’s history, culture, land and people as well as the country’s renewal process through a series of extracurricular activities.-VNA
