CISS students had a meeting with eminent speakers
On November 24, 2016, Grade 10 and Grade 11 students from CIS, BCIS and AES had an opportunity to meet two talented writers: Ms. Truong Bao Chau - managing editor of Tuoi Tre Newspaper and Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Thuan – author of the best-selling book named “Open the window, eyes closed”.
In the first session, Ms. Bao Chau did a presentation regarding basic knowledge of journalism and also shared her own experiences as a professional journalist. CIS students not only listened carefully but also asked many interesting questions about life, career, and the freedom of speech in Vietnam.
After that, CIS Grade 10 students immediately put the information they just learned from Ms. Bao Chau into practice by interviewing Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Thuan.
Mr. Thuan’s friendliness encouraged students to express themselves without hesitation.
This meeting was one activity of the bigger project named “The Language of Journalism” that is taking place at CIS, BCIS and AES. Each class is given a “mission” to accomplish. The topic for Grade 8 students in CIS is “From literature to real life - What should we do to help poor people”. They will go for charity in an orphanage, then write news and reportage and also interview people they meet. Grade 11 classes in BCIS and AES have the topic about issues in culture and society. The Grade 10 class in CIS will do a project about Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Thuan.
