TESTIMONIALS

"Homestay Accommodation: Overall, the home stay was an excellent find, my room was similar to the pictures in the Pre-Departure document; wireless internet & access to a bicycle were great! The 2 meals per day were deliciously prepared, cooked, and served. The host family was friendly and invited me to weekly social club meetings, intramural soccer games, and bicycle rides.

Vietnamese Teaching: The tutors met the criteria of my Language Proficiency Questionnaire [proficient in Vietnamese, able to communicate in English, understanding, a good listener, and a positive attitude]. The tutors also met the weekly 20 hours of Vietnamese lessons, each lesson did not feel rushed and the tutors stayed until the lesson is completed even if it means going over the scheduled time. Both were flexible with their schedules and tailored the lessons to my language level.

Cultural program: I liked the weekly field trips, I got to visit famous Hanoi landmarks and practice my Vietnamese.

Final Impression: I am grateful for the opportunity to travel to Hanoi and to learn Vietnamese. The experience was more than what I expected. I arrived to Hanoi expecting to learn about the current Vietnamese culture. What I did not expect was to learn about the French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Chinese, and Australian cultures. My homestay hosted guests from all over the world and it provided opportunities for me to interact with people from other countries. I am worldlier now as a person and my DLPT improved because of this program."

ABOUT THE COUNTRY

Shaped like an elongated 'S', Vietnam stretches along the east coast of the Indochinese Peninsula and is likened by its people to a long bamboo pole hung with two baskets of rice, represented by the two fertile regions at either end of the country. Between the lush Red River Delta and the highlands in the north, known for their magnificent scenery and colorful hill tribes, and the agricultural plains and floating markets of the Mekong Delta in the south, lie miles of white sandy beaches, towering mountains, rivers and dense forests, and the thousands of bizarre rock and cave formations on the islands of Halong Bay.

The quaint town of Hoi An, once a major trading port, boasts the perfectly preserved architectural influences of the Asian merchants from the north, while the broad leafy boulevards of the capital Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City are reminiscent of France. Menus offer Chinese variations of spring rolls, steamed dumplings and noodles. Hue is the old imperial capital of Vietnam with its royal palaces and palatial mausoleums, and nearby the battle sites of the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) are reminders of the brutality of war.

Ancient temples and colorful pagodas are scattered throughout the urban centers, while among them stand hotels of modern luxury, and the development of tourism infrastructure is a booming business. Vietnam is a perfect balance between ancient times and the here and now, a country that reveres its past heroes, a nation that has collectively put the woes of war behind it, and people who welcome visitors to their country with open arms and friendly smiles.
