DAV Chinese Faculty Holds Meeting and Exchange Talks with New Students, Intake 48
On the morning of September 15th, 2021, the Chinese Faculty, Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam (DAV) held a meeting via Microsoft Teams, aiming at introducing the Chinese language program and learning methods to students from intake 48. Attending the meeting were Ms. Tran Ngoc Ninh, Vice Dean of the Chinese Faculty, Ms. Nguyen Thuy Duong, Lecturer of the Chinese Faculty, Ms. Nguyen Tuyet Thanh, DAV Director of General Office, Mr. To Vu Luc, alumnus from intake 41, who is currently working at the Ministry of Industry and Trade, Ms. Do Nguyen Ngoc Anh, alumnus from intake 44, who is currently working as a visiting lecturer at the English Faculty and Bui Phuong Mai, Chairman of DAV Chinese Club, who is a final year student at the DAV, along with nearly 300 students from intake 48.
At the beginning, Ms. Tran Ngoc Ninh, Vice Dean of the Chinese Faculty delivered a welcome speech to the 48 intakers. In the context of the strong outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the "virtual auditorium" with nearly 300 new students created a vibrant atmosphere, which is a meaningful opportunity for the new students to communicate with each other and listen to the experience from lecturers and students in the faculty, she emphasized. At the same time, this equips the students with important insights and knowledge when a new school year is coming.
The meeting was divided into two main sessions with the content revolving around the Chinese teaching program at the DAV and then sharing methods, experiences of learning Chinese for the 48th intakers. After Ms. Ninh's introduction to the Chinese language curriculum, Mr. To Vu Luc and Ms. Do Nguyen Ngoc Anh had sincere sharing respectively when they received the questions about learning Chinese. In addition, through games and short videos, the students had a better understanding of the over 20-year journey and the mission of the DAV Chinese Faculty.
Although the program was virtually conducted, the gap between the new students and lecturers, existing students and alumni from the Chinese Faculty has been drawn closer. Such sincere sharing has brought valuable lessons and inspiration for the 48th intakers who are new “generations” of the DAV Chinese Faculty.
