WHAT UNESCO-CEP CAN DO FOR FOREIGN BUSINESS INDIVIDUALS IN SAIGON!


To whom it may concern:

The UNESCO Center for Culture & Education (UNESCO-CEP) is an independent, non-governmental and non-profit organization that is under the control of the Vietnam Federation of UNESCO Associations (VFUA). UNESCO-CEP's activities are to make active contribution to support cultural and educational development and to strengthen community relations and international cultural exchange.

In order to propagate one of its core missions, UNECO-CEP has been developing the program of Teaching Vietnamese to Foreigners since its establishment. The program aims at meeting the demands of international residents living and working in Vietnam, particularly in Ho Chi Minh City. As a result, we have launched a series of courses designed at providing a practical and working knowledge of the Vietnamese language and culture.

Since the program is specifically aimed at busy business individuals, the program has been designed to be flexible in order to create the ideal learning environment for the learner. First the program can be taught at the learner’s preferred location. Also, the learner can designate the preferred study schedule. In addition, the program can be taught in the languages (e.g., English, French, Japanese, Korean, etc.) that is best suited for the learner.

So, a learner may ask, “What’s in it for me?” For a serious business individual who wants to succeed in the Vietnamese business environment, having a practical and working knowledge of the Vietnamese language and culture can have several advantages:

 Develop a deeper understanding of the Vietnamese values, culture, and lifestyle;
 Develop a better business and/or working relationships;
 Establish new relationships and build new business prospects;
 Acquire high appreciation and/or loyalty from the Vietnamese staff (particularly with business owners);
 Be more available to new employment opportunities in Vietnam;
 Obtain other personal benefits, including:
 Make traveling more satisfying and enjoyable;
 Make lifelong friends and build good relationships with Vietnamese people as friends, partners, etc.

If your need in learning Vietnamese has not been realized, take a few minutes to think of it and then contact us at UNESCO-CEP. We can help analyze your need and provide you with a working and practical knowledge of the Vietnamese language and culture as you pursue your business dreams and goals in Vietnam. Let us help you enriched your experience here in Vietnam.

Thanks for your time and we look forward to hearing from you. We are readily available to address your need.
