The class, located at the headquarters of the Embassy, has run for 5 years.
At the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to the Netherlands Pham Viet Anh had a friendly conversation with the children in Vietnamese and talked with Vietnamese families in The Hague about President Ho Chi Minh's experience in eradicating illiteracy in Vietnam right after the success of the August Revolution.
Thanks to the volunteer teachers from the Embassy and in the community who are joining hands to preserve the Vietnamese language for the children, Ambassador Pham Viet Anh shared his experiences, methods and encouraged people to actively communicate, use Vietnamese in the family to teach and nurture the Vietnamese language for Dutch grandchildren and grooms who want to talk to Vietnamese people.
The Ambassador expressed his desire for people to connect with the community more widely, share and learn experiences from Vietnamese language classes that have been operating for a long time in the Netherlands, to replicate the model of Vietnamese learning, combining with online Vietnamese teaching programs to maintain Vietnamese for future generations as well as their relatives, who are Dutch.
Over the past year, despite the difficulties caused by the pandemic, the Vietnamese class still operates, from face-to-face to online. The number of students is still increasing. Many people, when they first entered the class, did not know how to read and write Vietnamese, but now they can spell, pronounce correctly and sing Vietnamese songs.
Representatives of families whose children attend the class expressed their thanks to the Embassy for paying attention to overseas Vietnamese children, and confirmed that they would cooperate with the class to support their children's studies./.
