In Spring 2019, FLS launched our first pilot language & cultural exploration program. This program is in partnership with the Van Lang Vietnamese Language School and the Department of Neighborhoods.

Our Fall 2019 class!

This program is catered to Vietnamese Americans 18 and older who want to enhance their understanding of the Vietnamese language and culture. It is a 10 week course with reading and grammar objectives, as well as exploration activities where you can apply the language skills you’ve learned in class.

Since our pilot, we’ve made some changes to accommodate for future classes. The Fall Quarter of our Vietnamese Language & Cultural Exploration program will have an a short entrance assessment. This will make sure that everyone in the cohort has the same skill level and can follow along with the speed of the course. There will also be a fee for participation of $100 for the course. This will support the teachers, exploration activities, and supplies. 

Registration is now closed. Keep an eye out for future courses!
