A fundamental Vietnamese language course has been introduced in Venezuela for 40 local trainees, who are from ministries, sectors, universities and media agencies, by the Vietnamese Embassy in Venezuela and the Vietnam-Venezuela Friendship Association, according to the Vietnam News Agency.
The course, the first of its kind in Venezuela, is designed for beginners, according to Vietnamese Chargé d’Affaires in Venezuela Van Cong Thang.
Thang said he hopes after the course, the trainees can communicate in Vietnamese and get a better understanding of the culture, nation and people of Vietnam, making contributions to the promotion of the bilateral friendship.
For his part, President of the Venezuela-Vietnam Friendship Association Carolus Wimmer thanked Vietnamese Ambassador Le Viet Duyen for the idea of opening a free Vietnamese course in Venezuela and directing enrollment.
The course will not only help trainees learn Vietnamese but also contribute to increasing the cultural exchange and fostering the friendship between the two countries, said Wimmer.
On behalf of the learners, Fabiola Hernández Gutiérrez from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Venezuela said that she is delighted to join the course, which is very meaningful to her and all trainees.
The teaching and learning of Vietnamese language in Venezuela are expected to promote the culture of Vietnam in the host country, while reinforcing the cooperation and friendship between people of both sides.
