Tamara Langborne - First month in
Well, I have been in Vietnam for a month in 4 days. I have learnt the basics of the language and had conversations
with a few randoms.
On the weekend I went down to Vung Tau with some friends, it is a really nice beach area, so I spent a lot of time
swimming. I also climbed a massive Jesus statue, where you can climb in his arms, and the view of Vung Tau from
there is amazing!! (it’s kind of like the lookout).
Teaching is going well, at the moment I’m just talking about myself, and where I come
from, so Tumut. I also discuss Australia, and the weather, government, youth, and a lot of other random little
I work 36 hours this month (or less) I don’t work Fridays, Saturday, or Sunday and don’t work most Mondays or
Wednesdays. On the days I work, I teach 2 classes that day, and sometimes only one.
I have made some great friends over here, some from the Lattitude program and some from Vietnam. The Vietnamese
people are so nice, they always say hello and smile and/or give the piece sign.
There is also an amusement park and waterparks, and waterfalls that we shall be going to this weekend.
