Who we are – Chúng ta là ai

“Who we are” is the first unit we are currently exploring in Vietnamese class. Students are inquiring into how communicating in another language help us to be connected with a wider community. Through different activities in the class, they have learned how to use and respond to greetings appropriately. The students can introduce and describe themselves and others using more descriptive words. They also start to pay attention to the tone marks in order to have better pronunciation. At the end of the unit, students will have a purposeful conversation with some of the Vietnamese native speakers.

Here are some links that you can use to practise Vietnamese with your child.

Bài một – Cho và nhận

“Cho và nhận” là bài học đầu tiên các em đang cùng nhau khám phá. Đây là bài học nhằm giúp các em hiểu sống trong một cộng đồng chúng ta phải biết giúp đỡ lẫn nhau. Các em tìm hiểu về bài học này thông qua các câu chuyện, những bài thơ và thảo luận về những tình huống cụ thể liên quan đến chủ điểm này.

Song song với việc phát triển kỹ năng nghe và nói, các em thường xuyên được luyện đọc và viết và đặc biệt được chú trọng sử dụng đúng dấu thanh, những vần đôi, vần ba. Bên cạnh đó, các em cũng đang học về cách phân biệt động từ, danh từ(danh từ chung/riêng) và tính từ. Ngoài ra, các em cũng đọc hiểu các bài đọc ngắn và đơn giản.
