Kiev (VNA) – The Vietnamese community in Ukraine’s Kharkov province is planning to hold an online Vietnamese language contest in the Eastern European nation.

The information was revealed during the April 26 online annual conference of the Vietnamese Association in Kharkov’s Vietnamese language division to review tasks carried out last year and launch upcoming lesson plans and extracurricular activities.

The contest, part of the events to commemorate the 130th birth anniversary of late President Ho Chi Minh (May 19), encourages participants to study his life and career, especially his great love for children.

Top scorers from the first round will qualify for the final.

During the conference, First Vice President of the Vietnamese Association Vu Huy Duong said the Vietnamese language division took the initiative to arrange online classes in mid-March after the Ukrainian government announced social distancing rules to curb the spread of COVID-19.

After one week, all classes were switched to online, he noted./.
