During one year studying in Vung Tau, two Korean students will take part in Vietnamese courses for international students at Ba Ria - Vung Tau University. On the occasion of two new friends coming to Ba Ria - Vung Tau University, they will expose some sharing about the good impression intially and some future plans.

How do you know Vietnam in general and Ba Ria - Vung Tau University in particular?

Han Gil: I know Ba Ria – Vung Tau University through one of my friends, he is Kim Yo Han, he participated in student exchange program between Gwangju University and Ba Ria - Vung Tau University last year. As  Yo Han's sharing, I feel very excited and eagerly wish to register this exchange program.

Won Jun: The reason I decided to come to Vietnam is by watching TV, newspapers and I realize that Vietnam is very beautiful, people are very friendly, quite closely to Korean culture, so I decided to try learning Vietnamese language. Moreover, I heard information from Yo Han and HanGil, I knew that the exchange program with Ba Ria - Vung Tau University has a course teaching Vietnamese with an advanced learning environment.  By hearing Yo Han's experiences and online learining myself, I found Vung Tau is a very beautiful coastal city, food is very delicious. After thinking about it, I decided to register and participate.

Why do you choose to learn Vietnamese?

Han Gil: (smile) I think the most important reason is that Yo Han is my friend and when I hear he speaks Vietnamese, I find Vietnamese language pronunciation very interesting. Moreover, I am thinking about learning a new foreign language, so I began to learn Vietnamese language.

Won Jun: I have a passion for learning foreign languages, moreover my major at university is Tourism, so studying foreign languages supports for my future work. Currently I can communicate fluently in English and Japanese, so I want to learn another foreign language. After a period of searching, I found that the Student Exchange Program with Ba Ria - Vung Tau University is very attractive so I did not hesitate to register.

What is your first impression when you come to Vietnam?

Han Gil:I just came to Vietnam for the first time so I do not know very well. But when on the way from Tan Son Nhat airport to Vung Tau City, I was quite surprised with the number of motorcycles on the road and the weather is very hot. But first time Vietnamese friends are very friendly and kind.

Won Jun: This is not my first time coming to Viet Nam. I used to visit Vietnam last year, have opportunity experience the places such as Nha Trang, Mui Ne, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh ... I see Vietnam is a very beautiful country, it has delicious and quite cheap food, especially I like Vietnamese coffee. But it also have to say that Viet Nam's climate is quite hot compared to foreigners.


Do you have any future plan in your study time at Ba Ria - Vung Tau University?

Han Gil: I want to quickly have more Vietnamese friends to impvove my Vietnamese speaking skill. I also want to try more delicious food of Vietnam, especially the specialties of Vung Tau City.

Won Jun: I also want to quickly have more Vietnamese friends, learn Vietnamese as quickly as possible to communicate and hang out with friends in Vietnam. I would like to visit more famous places throughout Viet Nam when I have a day off or free time.
