The Hue Ancient Capital of Vietnam is not only beautiful but also well-known for its friendly people and polite students. Experiencing the vibe of the Vietnamese Traditional New Year with the students makes me happy, delightful, and this may be the most wonderful and noteworthy in my life”.

According to the leaders of Thuan Hoa High school, the delegation of lecturers and students from the University of Education under Jeju National University - Korea is on their working and probation trip at the school in the second semester from January 9 to 14.
