Some of the people I am learning from include:
- Dr Ly Kha, the linguistics lecturer from Ho Chi Minh University of Education and Training.
- Ms Xuan, a new graduate speech therapist who has been my co-teacher and interpreter for the two weeks.
- Dr Alison Winkworth (from Charles Sturt University) who is a director of the Trinh Foundation, and is in Vietnam for one month. Each day she attends language classes and then tells me about what she has learned that day.
- Mr Truc, our Vietnamese guide on the Mekong River - who happily chatted about the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) that he had learned to enhance his pronunciation of French and English.
