TVU– 12.10. 2016. The university officially launches Water Conservation for Domestic and Hygiene Use Project in Tra Vinh Province. The project is sponsored by the U.S Embassy in Bangkok with the capital value of USD 50,000.  



This is a one-year project aiming to raise the awareness of water scarcity in the rural communities. The project also focuses on encouraging local residents to have effective water storage strategies for dry seasons and to minimize the risk of water scarcity as well as saline water invasion. Additionally, the expansion of implementing models on water-saving agriculture is another goal of this project.

The project is especially beneficial to households in three communes of Tra Vinh city  including Duc My, Dai An and My Chanh.  In the winter- spring crop of 2015-2016, Dai An and My Chanh experienced serious water shortages due to saline water invasion. This was the prime reason for failure in vegetable crops in these regions. Such an issue in water scarcity has also posed a major threat to over two thousands of households in Duc My commune.

With respect to the complete water solutions, Dr. Nguyen Thai Son, TVU Deputy Dean of School of Engineering and Technology, introduced a rainwater harvesting model. The model is equipped with a filtering system and a rainwater tank which is capable of containing 4 . Not only rainwater but also water from other sources can be stored in this model.

Additionally, Mr. Pham Chi Tung, Deputy Director of Center for Climate Change Adaptation Research and Community Development Support, informed that the center has successfully implemented water –saving irrigation techniques on taros and water-melons in Dai An and My Chanh communes. Such a measure effectively reduced approximately 30-40% amount of water consumption.

The project covers various activities including supplying rainwater tanks, fostering the implementation of water-saving models for vegetable culturing process, raising community awareness of saving water and conducting workshops in co-operation with relevant partners and local authorities. However, the project is expected to put greater emphasis on the first two activities.

TVU, 22.9.2016 – TVU SFL is aiming to turn evening into really special class time with the launch of a series of English Enhancement and Special Topics Workshops on every Monday evening from 7 p.m. to 8.30 p.m.

Khoa NN

The first workshop started on Monday 19.9 in the School Language Lab offering interested students  practical tips for taking the IELTS reading test.


The workshop, initiated by deputy dean Dr Ho Dac Tuc, is free for all TVU English majors and the class is limited to the maximum capacity of 30 learners who have registered on the basis of first come first serve.


These weekly workshops aim to target students who face misconception of a wide range of academic topics during class time. Topics covered include strategies for IELTS exam, basic grammatical structures, vocabulary skills, learning methodologies and other themes depending on students’ academic needs.


The School’s lecturer who conducted the first workshop, Mr. Huynh Ngoc Tai, led participants through  IELTS Reading test sections including Information on task types from Cambridge, Test-takers’ experience and Suggestions for IELTS preparation on reading skills.


Mr. Tai said:  “The purpose of the first topic is to share our experiences in the real IELTS exam conditions of reading skills and give some suggestions for students to prepare prior to taking IELTS tests. I hope that the attendees find them practical and successfully apply them in the real IELTS exams.”


“With the instructor’s convincing and clear explanations for each type task, I learn necessary techniques and gain motivation for the IELTS test. I am really thankful to the School for organizing such a meaningful workshop. I hope that I can attend more interesting workshops in the future,” said Trinh Hoang Son, English junior from Class DA14NNA.

In-depth analysis combined with specific examples and test – takers’ real experience contributed to the success of this workshop. This reduces the participants’ pressure and increases their motivation for test practicing.


“I have tried to do the IELTS sample - tests from Cambridge, but I was not satisfied with my results. This workshop helps me recognize what I should improve and makes me more interested in IELTS tests achievement,” said Nguyen Ngoc Quoc Cuong, Year 4 English major (Class DA13NNAA).

The newly-refurbished foreign language library officially opened to students on September 5 2016 in the TVU Foreign Languages School is longing for readers.


The library is equipped with air-conditioning and high speed Wi-Fi, and offers a light and spacious academic study environment. A large number of books are available on shelves,  most of them are from prominent publishing companies including Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and Penguine.


“With more than 120 English and Vietnamese bilingual books and English materials recently purchased for the library, students can access a variety of materials including fiction and non-fiction for pleasure and expanding their general knowledge after school hours,” said Mr. Huynh Ngoc Tai, an English lecturer.


In contrast to Mr. Tai’s expectation, students show less interest in the new library. “No one comes here so far,” said Mr. Quang, a volunteer student assigned to serve the library.


The School of Foreign Languages has recently spent almost VND 100,000,000 on print books and magazines. Inside the library decorations include banners and posters showing tips for IELTS testing as well as the timelines of world literature.


 “The declining interest in reading culture among our students is partially due to the influence of electronic media,” said deputy dean Dr Ho-Dac Tuc. “To ginger up the reading habit, faculty and students need to instill the value of reading and it takes time to break a habit.”


The last few days have seen an increasing number of student-readers visiting the library.
