Speaking at the ceremony, Dinh Hoang Linh, Director of the Department of Information and Culture under the SCOV, said that nearly 70 teachers from nine countries and territories have successfully completed the two-week training course, which was designed to equip them for pedagogical skills, formal and professional Vietnamese teaching methods, and more knowledge about Vietnamese language, culture, and history.

First held in 2013, the annual training course for teachers of overseas Vietnamese language aims to enhance the teaching capacity for professional and non-professional teachers in community language facilities, and update them with new knowledge in the work.

So far, over 600 overseas teachers have participated in the courses with the support of teachers who are leading language experts of the Ministry of Education and Training.

In 2020 and 2021, due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the course was held online with the participation of more than 400 overseas Vietnamese teachers.

The training course in 2022 took place from August 15-30./.
