This is the first Vietnamese class held at the headquarters of the Vietnamese Embassy with the participation of nearly 20 students, from 7 to 15 years old, who are overseas Vietnamese children, born and grow up in Denmark.

Speaking at the event held at the Vietnamese Embassy, Ambassador Luong Thanh Nghi hailed organizers and teachers’ efforts in opening the class and highlighted the significance of maintaining the teaching and learning of Vietnamese as the language is a special bond connecting overseas Vietnamese, particularly young generations, and their roots.

September 8 has been designated as the day for honouring the Vietnamese language for communities abroad since 2023. The State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese has organized annual summer camps for overseas Vietnamese youth and training classes for Vietnamese language teachers abroad.

Currently, there are more than 16,000 overseas Vietnamese living and working in Denmark. They have deeply integrated into the host society, and been highly appreciated by local authorities for contributions to the economic and socio-cultural development of Denmark./.
