It also aims to enhance the community’s awareness of the Vietnamese language’s beauty and value as well as honour individuals and organizations that make great contributions to maintaining and expanding the coverage of the Vietnamese language among the overseas Vietnamese community.

The project is expected to motivate the efficiency and quality of Vietnamese teaching and learning among the overseas Vietnamese community and encourages the host administrations to bring Vietnamese into educational facilities in Vietnamese-inhabited areas.

Activities to celebrate the day for honouring the Vietnamese language will be integrated into festivals and special occasions of the country.

In addition, they include an annual meeting to mark the day, an annual contest to explore the language and the presentation of the “Vietnamese language ambassador abroad” title, and an art performance in Vietnam or abroad to honour the Vietnamese language.

The project will be implemented together with the cultural diplomacy strategy until 2030 that was approved by the Prime Minister on November 30, 2021.

At the same time, the Vietnam National University-Hanoi will launch an online portal for Vietnamese language training for overseas Vietnamese./.
