Ten Fun Facts About Vietnam on the Multicultural Kids’ Blog
This post has information about the people, language, literacy, spoken language, food, coffee, money, motorbikes, and the war. Vietnam frequently comes up in conversations at our house as my husband wrote a book about his experiences there in 1968-69. Good Afternoon Vietnam: A Civilian in the Vietnam War, by Gary Wilhelm. I made a free curriculum for the book as well, which could be used in secondary schools. I have seen photos of the country for decades, and we were transfixed by the Vietnam series by Ken Burns on public television last fall. How to explain Vietnam to children? This blog post has an appropriate way and is well-illustrated with photos children will be curious to view.
The author of the post lived in Hanoi for over 4 years and loved the country. Pheobe Thomas is an adult TCK expat since birth, putting down (shallow) roots in the South of France. She is a blogger, traveler, Francophile, and mum to 2 bilingual, multicultural boys. She says Vietnamese people row a boat forwards, not backward as is the norm in most countries. They often row with their feet or standing up! There are photos to prove her point. Motorbikes are also popular. When my husband’s motorbike was almost stolen, he sold it as he wasn’t depending on it at the time. If you like coffee, be sure to read that part of the informational post. She explains the Vietnamese language is tonal. Each word has 6 tones with 6 different meanings. I do not know if I could get used to having to figure out what was being stated. We have “tone” here, too, but mostly that means a negative manner of speaking.
Thank you for linking-up, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to!
