12:58 03/10/2023

Let’s start a new week with some enthusiastic news about our First Scientific Research Seminar which was held at the end of last week in the Berlin Room, DAV. The Seminar was attended by lecturers from the Faculty, along with former Vietnamese Ambassadors to foreign countries who are now venerated visiting lecturers, educators and English major students.

Delivering the opening remarks, Dr. Tran Thi Thanh Lien emphasized the importance of doing scientific research at tertiary level, still, it is a huge challenge for not only the students of DAV and English Faculty particularly. Dr. Lien sincerely expressed her appreciation to those who attended the seminar since the ultimate goal was to make the English-major students gradually be accustomed to projects of scientific research.

The seminar started with the presentations from five final groups. The first group’s thesis was “A Critical Discourse Analysis of Rishi Sunak’s First Speech As Prime Minister of the United Kingdom” which analyzes the linguistic devices in the speech of PM Rishi Sunak, as well as the ideologies and hidden political intentions behind the words.The second group focused on “the Impacts of Quillbot and Grammarly on Academic Writing Skills of DAV English-majored Juniors and Seniors”. While the third group shifted their attention to “ChatGPT - one of the most versatile tools in learning English in this digitalised society”. Next to come was presentation 4, which argued that “General English (GE) training is a crucial foundation for English for Specific Purposes (ESP) Training”. Last but not least, group 5 introduced to the seminar a brand new online-game platform - “Blooket and its role in learning specialized vocabulary”.

In addition, the seminar also welcomed two short presentations from English-Language-graduates speakers Le Nguyen Van Trang & Le Khanh Ly speaking about their dissertation projects they did last year. Having assessed all of the presentations, the judges agreed that the winning awards went to the first group, which was “A Critical Discourse Analysis of Rishi Sunak’s First Speech As Prime Minister of the United Kingdom”. The seminar ended with an award ceremony, honoring groups with good achievements.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this first student research seminar of the English Faculty. Let's carry the spirit of curiosity and innovation forward as we embark on new research endeavors.
