Students Gather in Vietnam for Green Summer Campaign

A delegation of volunteer students from Stanford University in the US arrived in Ho Chi Minh City on June 13 to take part in the city's Green Summer Campaign 2005. The US students have presented 50 computers to the municipal committee of the HCM Communist Youth Union. During their two-week stay in the city to join local youth in voluntary activities, the 14 students from Stanford University will design an online English-language classroom, teach English, and provide guidelines for using English learning software on the Internet. Kevin Siew, the head of the group, said he admired the young Vietnamese people's fondness for learning. The Ho Chi Minh City's 2005 campaign has drawn the participation of six delegations of foreign students. They include nearly 100 students from France, Singapore, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and the US. (Vietnam News Agency)
