Russian teachers conduct online lessons for Vietnamese students


25.03.2020


On March 24, 2020, the first online lessons on Russian as a foreign language were held for students in grades 10-12 of the leading special schools in Vietnam. Online lessons were taught by Russian teachers via Zoom.

According to the agreement of the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam from February 2020, the humanitarian project is meant to ensure the work of teachers of Russian as a foreign language in Vietnamese educational organizations, but due to the epidemiological situation, Russian teachers could not come to Vietnam.

The Hanoi branch of the Pushkin State Institute of the Russian Language, where the Center of the Russian World is located, acts as a coordinator of the project. Online lessons are a good way out of this situation. This decision pleased both teachers and students.

For schoolchildren in Vietnam, these were the first lessons and acquaintance with Russian teachers. Pupils of grade 10 were very hesitant in communicating with teachers from Russia at the beginning of the lesson, they could not answer the questions quikly, because they began to study Russian only 5 months ago. Neither was the lesson easy for the pupils of grades 11, they found it difficult to answer, as this was their first communication with native speakers.

But the students were able to overcome all the linguistic and psychological difficulties very quickly thanks to the friendliness of teachers from Russia. During the lessons, students actively participated in the assignments.
