A collection of Vietnamese language learning materials designed for overseas Vietnamese (OV)were handed over to attendees at a seminar held in Hanoi on August 12. 

Attending the event were over 40 instructors who teach Vietnamese language classes for OV from 25 countries and territories and top lecturers and professionals in the Vietnamese linguistic training sector.

Addressing the event, Head of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs Vu Hong Nam said relevant authorities will digitalise existing textbooks and make them available for download. 

According to a representative from the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET), popularising Vietnamese language among OV is essential. The language has been taught at schools in Australia, Canada and the C zech Republic where the Vietnamese community is relatively large.

The ministry has yet to publish any set of official textbooks designed for OV communities, leaving some places to use domestic textbooks like “Tieng Viet Vui” (Fun Vietnamese) or “Que Viet” (Viet motherland) for teaching.

Participants discussed specific methods of teaching and learning Vietnamese language adopted by particular foreign regions and proposed ways for effective training. 

The event was co-hosted by the State Committee for OV Affairs and MoET.-VNA
