Also head of the coordinating board of Vietnam-Laos Buddhist cooperation, the monk said the programme will help children of Vietnamese citizens in Laos learn their mother tongue and appreciate traditional Vietnamese culture.

Lao and English, meanwhile, will facilitate their life here, he added.

The course consists of one Vietnamese class, one Lao class, and two English classes on evenings at the pagoda for about three months. Lessons are delivered by Lao teachers who once studied in Vietnam, Vietnamese teachers studying in Laos, and foreign teachers.

Most participants are Vietnamese working and living in Laos for many years, who can communicate but cannot read and write the local language./.VNA
