Postcard from Vietnam: Mr Daniel Penson & Ms Claire Donnelly

Name: Claire Donnelly

Subject: English

From: Scotland

My first impression of Vietnam: exciting, lively, chaotic and friendly country

To me, BVIS students are: lovely, friendly, lively (in a positive way)

My first Moon Festival in BVIS : it is lovely. I like seeing people getting involved in it and doing things together to celebrate. I especially like wearing the Ao Dai, it brings to me a sense of the classic and sophisticated

To me, the differences between Vietnamese and Scottish people: maybe Vietnamese people are chattier.

My top adjectives to describe Vietnam: vibrant, energetic, colourful, fun.

City: London

My first impression of Vietnam: the food is amazing, the people are really friendly but I’m not used to the traffic.

My first impression about the Moon Festival: fantastic, there’s so much going on that I’ve never seen before. Though today is the second time I watched the dragon dances, there many beautiful and skilful techniques that I particularly enjoy!

The experience in the “Ao Dai”: I feel really nice and comfortable.

To me, the differences between Vietnamese and London people: Vietnamese people are friendlier. In Vietnam, the people are really welcoming, really warm, always try to make conversation.

What will I do by the time in Vietnam:  I’m planning to go to Phu Quoc, Ha Noi and Ha Long bay.

My favorite hobbies: playing football and guitar.

To sum up Vietnam, I would choose: crazy (the traffic), difficult (the traffic), calm (the people), friendly and enjoyable.
