Duong, Thanh Binh
This handbook is intended as a guide to the American teacher in helping Vietnamese students make the cultural and academic transition to the American classroom. Part one of the handbook suggests approaches to specific problems arising from cultural and linguistic differences, including forms of address, coeducation, work habits, contact with parents, and language of instruction. Part two provides more general information about Vietnamese culture, its values and concepts, and the attitudes of the Vietnamese toward education and school. Part three contains a glossary of vocabulary items found on Vietnamese high school diplomas and certificates. It is provided to assist in the identification of items on these documents. Part four contains a selective bibliography of generally available materials related to Vietnamese culture and language. (Author/AM)
