Mandarin Teachers Conference jointly organized by TECO in Ho Chi Minh City and TECO in Hanoi
This conference was the first time that all the Mandarin teachers from Taiwan teaching in universities in all parts of Vietnam have come together to share their teaching experiences and difficulties that they face. It was organized to give the teachers an opportunity to build up a network and partnerships to assist each other with teaching methodology and materials, and help each other deal with difficulties in their everyday lives, and homesickness.
Personnel from the two Education Divisions explained the important role that Mandarin teachers from Taiwan like themselves play and the Vietnam government regulations pertaining to them. Twelve Mandarin teachers – six teaching at universities in the northern part of Vietnam, and six teaching at universities in the southern part of Vietnam – gave 15-minute presentations about their universities, and most importantly, their teaching methodologies and teaching materials.
This very successful event was attended by approximately fifty people.
