Want to have some fun? Click on “An American Wedding in Việt Nam.” (The link is also on the left.) Our American colleague teaches American Culture, and she is going to conduct a mock wedding as the class project. Take a look – and also, you might answer some of the student’s questions. Enjoy the experiment as it unfolds.
If you have been reading this blog since I’ve started living in Việt Nam, you know I take a lot of photos. Most of them never make it to the blog. I thought I would try something new and start posting some of my pictures on a photo gallery website. Take a look at www.pbase.com/doug - but remember I am just getting started.
I picked up some sort of hacking cough in Thailand – and its still driving me nuts. Maybe I’m allergic to mold.
The semester is in full swing now. I have been assigned an American Culture class, which I will co-teach with a Vietnamese teacher. In case my North American friends are wondering, each level of students (first year, second year, etc.) at different colleges start the semester at different times. That explains why the previous post was about a class I have been teaching for two weeks, yet I am just starting another course. I also have a first year speaking class and a third year speaking class, and I am supervising a fourth year student's research thesis.
Finally – I wish I had taken this picture. I know this is the real Clark Kent because he has a curl on his forehead.
