Speaking at the opening ceremony for the class, Vietnamese Ambassador to Austria Le Dung said that the class will help overseas Vietnamese young people, teenagers and children of the second and third generations in the country to learn the Vietnamese language.

He also noted that class will create conditions for students to learn more about traditional cultural identities as well as inspire their sentiment and love for the homeland.

President of Vietnamese Women Association in Austria, Bui Thanh Hai, expressed her sincere thanks to the Embassy in opening the Vietnamese language class, while affirming that the overseas Vietnamese community in Vienna will mobilise their children to proactively learn.

In preparations, the Embassy has coordinated with the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs to organise the training courses to standardise Vietnamese language teaching for members of the Vietnamese Women Association and several Vietnamese students who will teach the language.

The Embassy also mobilised several sponsors to establish a Study Encouragement Fund to maintain the class on every Sunday.
