Vietnamese Ambassador to Ukraine Nguyen Hong Thach said teaching Vietnamese language for Vietnamese children in Ukraine was extremely important.

"Learning their mother tongue will help them communicate with relatives in Vietnam, contributing to preserving and promoting the Vietnamese language and culture in Ukraine. More importantly, the Vietnamese language will also improve their career opportunities if they want to return to Vietnam to work or live in the future," he said. "For these reasons, the embassy pays attention to teaching Vietnamese and is ready to create favorable conditions for the children to learn the language."

Vietnamese language class in Netherlands

The Vietnamese Embassy in the Netherlands recently opened a Vietnamese language class for Vietnamese children and Dutch men married to Vietnamese women.

Pham Viet Anh, Vietnamese Ambassador to the Netherlands, came to talk in Vietnamese language to children and their families living in La Haye about the experience of late President Ho Chi Minh in eradicating illiteracy in Vietnam after the August Revolution.

He thanked voluntary teachers from the embassy and the community for helping preserve the Vietnamese language.

The ambassador expressed his wish that Vietnamese people in the Netherlands would connect with community members more widely, as well as share and learn from the experience of the Vietnamese language classes that have been operating in the Netherlands, with the aim of preserving the language for future generations.
