When asked, the international students participating in the language and culture experience trip said that this activity was meaningful for their Vietnamese learning and would especially be very useful for the upcoming Vietnamese Language Proficiency Test. Communicating with local people, reading introduction signs at the destinations, listening to on-site tour guides... helped international students practice their listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. In particular, they were introduced to and had a chance to enjoy the traditional dishes of the locality where they came, of which Quang noodles is a dish that lot of international students love.
