“To ensure quality of teaching and learning, all 29 teachers at the school registered to learn ethnic language," Mến told the online newspaper giaoducthoidai.vn. In addition to the two Vietnamese language classes per week, the school also integrated Vietnamese language into all classroom activities. Teacher Tòng Thị Lan said she plays traditional folk games with short and easy-to-remember common language songs, which helped increase interaction with students. She faced challenges in communicating with the children as well as their parents as none of them could speak Vietnamese language. I also learned the Mông language from village elders and parents.
