NDO – The second international language festival of Hanoi’s Ngo Si Lien Secondary School, “Ngo Si Lien – Inspiration 2018”, took place on February 3, offering teachers, parents, students and foreign visitors with interesting experiences about a unique space of multi-cultural festivals of countries around the world.

Among the attendants were representatives from the German, Australian and Japanese Embassies in Vietnam, the Vietnam-Japan Centre for Cultural Exchange, and international education centres – Language Link and British Council.

Throughout the programme, the Ngo Si Lien students not only stirred up the atmosphere with extremely exciting dances, but also took the audience to different lands, such as New Zealand, France or Germany, via presentations in the languages that they are studying.

Students demonstrated better skills this year, while the activities were also more diverse than in 2017, manifested through the organisation of the “Ring the golden bell” contest and the Vietnamese “Ao dai” (long dress) show, he stated.
