Exchange Program with SAS (Semester At Sea) students


At first, we gathered in a room to discuss the issue of teaching and learning English at Vietnam. We were divided into pairs. I and my best friend Nana formed pairs with Ms Claudia and Rahel who were also best friends. 

We taught them some Vietnamese phrases. Hihi.  When MC asked if anyone can speak other languages besides English and Vietnamese, I raised hands and speak some Korean and Chinese phrases. I felt a little ashamed :((( Then we went to the restaurant” Cơm nắm việt” to have a buffet. We introduced Vietnamese food to the SAS students. They seemed very interesting. Ms.Claudia and Rahel were very impressed by Vietnamese food which were “Bánh khọt”( Small Vietnamese Miniature Fried Pancakes with shrimps ) and “Bún Mắm” (Rice noodles in fermented fish soup ) . They are very delicious , especially when using with Vietnamese Sauce.

After the lunch, every pair can go whenever they want as long as they return at 4 pm. My group including me, Nana, Ms. Rahel Ms Claudia and her husband walked along streets to talk about Vietnamese Culture. Then we went to Ben Thanh Market (Famous market in Ho Chi Minh City) because they wanted to buy something to celebrate a secret party for a couple on the ship. ^^ These are really good memories~~

I did not have time to take pictures of “Bánh khọt”( Small Vietnamese Miniature Fried Pancakes with shrimps ). So I searched it from Google ^^
