On Wednesday Ben Pham (Phạm Thị Bền) presented her PhD proposal titled "Children's acquisition of consonants, semivowels, vowels and tones in Northern Viet Nam". There were many supporters in attendance on 8 sites: in person, via video conference, and telephone. She received very positive feedback from the official readers and audience. The next steps will be to complete her ethics application and receive approval from the CSU ethics committee. She plans to begin data collection in Viet Nam in a few months' time. Congratulations Ben.
