VGP  – A Vietnamese language course, the first of its kind in Bangkok has opened with the aim of teaching the Vietnamese language to the overseas Vietnamese in Thailand and preserving the cultural values of the Vietnamese people. 

The opening ceremony of the course was jointly held by the Vietnamese Embassy in Thailand in coordination with the Vietnamese Thai Association and the Vietnamese Thai Entrepreneurs’ Association.

The class, with 10 learners, is expected to help overseas Vietnamese families in Thailand to maintain their mother tongue and teach the language to the younger generations.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Ambassador of Viet Nam to Thailand Nguyen Hai Bang emphasised that the Party and State of Viet Nam always pay due attention to teaching Vietnamese language for overseas Vietnamese.

With the support of the Thai royal family and government, and the large number of Vietnamese, Thailand has favourable conditions to organise such classes, the diplomat said.

An overseas Vietnamese in Bangkok Nguyen Thi Loi said that generations of Vietnamese people in Bangkok have been looking for such a language class for years, adding that the class will create motivation for Vietnamese people in Bangkok to consolidate their solidarity and encourage exchanges between Vietnamese people in Thailand.
