Over the next few days I will accompany Ben Pham to preschools in Ha Noi, Vietnam where she has been collecting data for her PhD. The aim of her PhD is to describe speech acquisition of children in Northern Viet Nam and she is assessing children's speech using the Vietnamese Speech Assessment. Today we were also accompanied by Dr. Giang Pham from San Diego State University and Xuan Le from Ho Chi Minh City who are assisting us with reliability of transcription. Ben also has a team of excellent students from Hanoi National University of Education who are her research assistants during her data collection.
