The program aims to implement the Project "Honoring the Vietnamese language in the overseas Vietnamese community between 2023 and 2030" and the Plan on Day for the Vietnamese language in 2023 approved by the Prime Minister, contributing to honoring the national language and individuals who have made contributions to preserving and spreading the Vietnamese language in the overseas Vietnamese community, as well as improving the effectiveness of Vietnamese language teaching and learning for overseas Vietnamese.

The TV program “Chao Tieng Viet” (Hello Vietnamese language) has been launched to promote Vietnamese language teaching abroad.

“Chao Tieng Viet” is designed for overseas Vietnamese children in two age groups - from 6 to 10 and from 10 to 15, teachers, and parents who teach Vietnamese in classes or at home.

The weekly 15-minute program is on VTV4 and its social network platforms.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Vice Chairman of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese Affairs Mai Phan Dung believed that the program which is easily accessed on TV and digital platforms would be welcomed by overseas Vietnamese and generate positive results in Vietnamese teaching for overseas Vietnamese children.

On this occasion, the committee launched a contest to seek ambassadors of the Vietnamese language abroad. The contest is held for the first time, targeting 5.3 million overseas Vietnamese and foreigners who love and use Vietnamese fluently.

The contest takes place in three phases from April 1 to August 10, 2023. The five best candidates will be awarded the title of “Vietnamese language ambassador abroad in 2023” at the closing ceremony of Vietnamese language Honoring Day 2023 scheduled for September 8.
