“Vietnamese Day!” (English Courses in the Philippines)

On December 16, 2015, our academy featured another interesting country. Can you guess which country it is this time? It’s not really that difficult to guess. Just by looking at the traditional clothing this pretty student is wearing, there’s no doubt we’re talking about VIETNAM!

Led by our IELTS student from Vietnam, Jeniffer, the presentation went on smoothly as she disscussed some general information about Vietnam, namely the flag, language, music, and traditional dance.

Shortly after that, Kevin, our Vietnamese marketing manager, took over to talk about the unique festivals and games that the Vietnamese people are fond of.

We can really say that Vietnamese cuisine is among the best in the world! During this time, the hosts offered the students some local Vietnamese tea and sweet lotus seeds and they loved it!

In this part of the presentation, Jeniffer showed everybody how to make “buffalo puppets” made of leaves, a common past time for both Vietnamese kids and adults. The best part is, the students got to experience making it by themselves! Teacher Lucas was there to join, too!

We can all see that the presentation was a success. Everybody learned a lot about how culturally diverse this country is, knowing that there are various ethnic groups that contribute to its uniqueness. A perfect combination of Asia and a noticeable touch of the West, Vietnam definitely is one of the most exciting places to visit!

But hold on, we’re not done yet! One of the best ways to get to know a country is through food, and there is NO WAY this cultural presentation review will finish without it!

Behind the scenes and before the presentation started, Kevin, teacher Feodda, Jeniffer, and her father, Hong Chuyen, who was also a student here studying General English, started preparing the food as soon as the last class had finished.  They looked like a perfect team! While Jeniffer and Kevin were preparing the Vietnamese spring rolls at the cafeteria, Chuyen was the main man for frying!

Never before have we seen such a good tandem between father and daughter! We can really see that the students enjoy the event. The smiles say it all!

We would like to thank Jeniffer, Kevin, and of course Mr. Hong Chuyen for giving us a chance to experience Vietnam, its culture, its flavors, its beats and rhythms, and most of all, its people.
