The Vietnamese Language At Cornell
The Vietnamese language program at the Department of Asian Studies at Cornell offers four levels of language training in Vietnamese from elementary to advanced, and a course in independent study. Four language skills, including speaking, listening, reading and writing are important components of the course. Beginning and Intermediate Vietnamese courses focus on topics dealing with daily aspects of Vietnamese life. Advanced levels explore various issues in modern society through different types of reading texts.
