Xin chào các bạn trở lại với Bàn Tròn Tiếng Việt. 🌐

Welcome back to Virtual Vietnamese Language Table, Fall 2023.  Here is the schedule for all meetings this Fall semester. We look forward to seeing you all! 

Xin chào! & Welcome to Bàn tròn Tiếng Việt!

The Vietnamese Language Table was initiated by SEALC and GETSEA in 2021. This is the virtual conversation space for all learners of Vietnamese from institutions across North America and all over the world. 

Vietnamese Language Table (Bàn Tròn Tiếng Việt) offers conversation hours at various proficiency levels for three groups: Beginner Group, Intermediate Group & Advanced Group. The facilitators develop the levels based on the Vietnamese Oral Proficiency Guidelines (2020-2021) and ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines 2012

The hosts/ facilitators in the Spring 2023 are An Nguyen Sakach (Vietnamese Lecturer, Arizona State University), Trang Tran (Visiting Lecturer, Brown University) and ThuyAnh Nguyen (Vietnamese Lecturer, University of Michigan).
