The story of Sơn tinh - Thuỷ tinh

Mị Nương was the daughter of King Hùng XVIIIth. Her beauty was unsurpassed and the monarch was determined that she should marry someone who was exceptional and well matched to her beauty. One day, two suitors arrived at the kingdom to ask for her hand.

The first, who came from the Ba Vì Mountains, was handsome and intelligent and possessed great powers. He pointed his finger to the East, and green rice paddies appeared. He pointed his finger to the West and high mountains rose. He was known as the Prince of the Mountains.

The other hopeful suitor came from the Eastern Sea, and he also had tremendous powers. When he called the wind, it blew as strongly as he commanded. And when he asked for rain, he could have any amount he wished.

The story of Cuoi

Once upon a time there was a peasant named Cuoi. One day, as usual, Cuoi was coming into the woods to collect woods when he saw four little tigers in a cave. So he used his axe to kill all of them. He then climbed up a tree and watched as the tigers’ mother growling angrily.

Then she walked away and brought back several leaves. She chewed and then fed the leaves on the dead tigers’. Cuoi watched surprisingly as the lifeless tigers opened their eyes, and within a few minutes, got up and began to run around...

Why did people use “Dz” in names in the old days?

A lot of people seeing the name of the musician “Dzoãn Mẫn” or the craftsman and food specialist “Nguyễn Dzoãn Cẩm Vân” in the newspapers or on TV might be thinking the writers must be misspelling the names because there can’t be a name starting with ‘Dz’ in Vietnamese.

In order to understand more about this special “Dz”, let’s break down the letters “D” and “z”. “D” is an odd letter in the Latin alphabet, its pronunciation is almost the same as that of the letter “Y” (as in Yes, You, etc.). “D” is gradually used for that specific pronunciation instead of “Y”.

From that, we can divide the pronunciations of “D” into 2 groups: D – English style, as in “Doctor” and “Dancing”; and D – Vietnamese style, with its pronunciation sounds like the “Y” in English.

Give children the chance of education - Cho em được tới trường

Live in Tết Trung Thu


Spending over 3 hours driving from Hồ Chí Minh City, going through a red clay road, deep into the jungle, we arrived at a lake community in Suối Tượng, where about 40 kids are forced to stop studying at fifth grade every year due to poverty. To move to secondary school, a kid there have to wake up around 5am to travel 70 kilometers a day through a clay road on dry days and a mud road on rainy day. In addition to a higher school fee, the families have to pay 45,000 VND/day for commute on the school truck and lunch for each child. For most parents who live by and live on floating houses on Mã Đà river, the financial burden for their child’s secondary education is simply unaffordable while they jobs are manual labor for nearby farms or fishing.

Without being able to receive higher education, the kids’ future is limited to manual labor or fishing just like their parents, which creates a vicious cycle of poverty.

VLS warmly invites all VLS students and supporters to join a charitable program called “Give children the chance of education”; to join an act of kindness which will bring happiness and better future to underprivileged children, who have strong aspiration to be educated but are limited by poverty.

Art & People – Life through the lens of Lý Hoàng Long

In this lesson, you can learn names of some places in Vietnam and gain knowledge about an outstanding Vietnamese photographer.

Lý Hoàng Long, a self-taught Vietnamese photographer, has won numerous international and national awards such as Gold medal at Digital Master Circuit 2004, Winner of 2015 Travel Photographer of the Year, UPI Gold medal in The 8th Emirate Photography Competition, Documentary Award of Humanity Photo Awards 2013 Beijing.

But when his name and his artworks are mentioned, awards winning and increasingly popularity is not the aspects would come to my mind. The ways his images convey stories and ignite imagination is what leaves such a long lasting impression and dreamy satisfaction.

This Music Video has attracted more 200,000 viewers on Youtube since it published on 2014. “The Mi Quang Song” was filmed with comedy performance ideas, rap lyrics describe about the special Da Nang Noodles. The Young American Guy can eat three times “ Mi Quang” Noodle everyday with his friends or alone.

How many foods have their own song?

I don’t know about others but Mì Quảng indeed has a dope, bilingual song created by Ashlin Aronin who learn Vietnamese in Ho Chi Minh with #VLS and his friends.

How to remember new words and the correct ways to use them quickly and effectively while having fun? How to smoothly continue a conversation when you cannot remember the word?

Interactive games such as word guessing like the one in the video below can be the answer. In facts, after years of using games in Vietnamese language classes at VLS, we recognized that these games not only help our students learn quickly but also enhance their language skills to interact immediately and confidently in real life conversation.

Learn Vietnamese with Song

American Students Learn Vietnamese in Ho Chi Minh By Singing A Song “Noi Vong Tay Lon”. Learning the new language with song is the effective way to improve your skill. As the research results indicated that, music is really a fantastic language and can be an interesting method to enhancing your listening skills as well as expanding your vocabulary.

So, how long would it take you to learn a song in a totally new language? The Duke Engage students coming with CET Vietnam. CET is the study abroad program sponsored by US Government, It helps US Students to learn about environmental degradation, public health infrastructure… Although our students haven't yet finished their 9th hour learning at VLS, but they can sing along with Vietnamese friends. This singing will help to strengthen their teamwork and friendship with their Vietnamese roommates during their summer civic projects in central Vietnam.
