In order for the movement of teaching and learning Vietnamese for generations of Vietnamese children to be continuously maintained and expanded over the past decades, the role of "fire keepers" as in the case of Nguyen Van Son at the Sapa-Prague Vietnamese Centre, VNA reported.

According to Son, Vietnamese language teaching at the center focuses on testing capacity and proficiency, thereby providing appropriate teaching methods for each student. Therefore, the work requires effort, dedication, and a large number of teachers. However, classroom teachers at the Sapa-Prague Vietnamese Centre do not receive a salary but only a small hourly compensation.
Son appreciated the support of the Vietnamese Embassy in the Czech Republic, donors, teachers, and students’ parents in maintaining and expanding such summer courses.
Son believes that Vietnamese associations in general need to research and plan to organize Vietnamese summer camps right in the Czech Republic, and have effective forms of widespread propaganda about the meaning and benefits of learning Vietnamese. to the community.
In addition to holding the position of director of the Sapa-Praha Vietnamese Center, Son is also currently president of the Veterans Association in the Czech Republic and Party Secretary of the Sapa Trade Center. Therefore, he always believes that maintaining Vietnamese language classes not only because of his love for children, but is also the responsibility of a person from the previous generation and a party member.
