Nearly 50 students learned Vietnam’s alphabet characters, pronunciation and basic greetings. They expressed wish that more Vietnamese classes will be opened. 

Head of the Russian, Asian and contemporary Greek language faculty Ricardo Cornejo said the school will consider adding Vietnamese language into its curricula in the near future to meet students’ demand. 

International and Mexican students were also introduced to Vietnam’s rice paper – a specialty of the wet rice civilization. They learnt how to make fresh spring rolls using rice papers.

On the occasion, they gained an insight into the unique culture of H’Mong people, one of the 54 Vietnamese ethnic groups via the film “Story of Pao” by director Ngo Quang Hai. 

The day was part of the Vietnam Week held by UNAM with a series of activities such as seminars and photo exhibitions.
