Hoi An opens Vietnamese class to foreigners
For the first time, the ancient town of Hoi An has opened a free-of-charge Vietnamese class for foreigners in Tan An ward Hoi An Vietnam.
The class is opened by the Tan An Ward Public Study Centre. According to the centre’s director Cao Kim, this is the first class of its kind in the town, which attracts 34 students who are foreign experts and businessmen of various nationalities, who are working and living in Hoi An Vietnam.
In late June, the Hoi An Commerce and Tourism Chamber opened a free of charge English class for pack-bike drivers who serve visitors at night in the ancient town.
Through this class, the Hoi An Commerce and Tourism Chamber has helped 1,000 people get stable jobs, including 200 motorbike taxi drivers in the wards of Minh An, Cam Pho and Tan An and 120 cyclo drivers.
Those people are also ‘tour guides’ of Hoi An, who contribute to advertise the town’s culture and history to visitors.
