Pick the first 3 words you think of when I say Vietnam

Bustling, Happy, Beautiful

What are your first impressions of BIS HCMC?

It is really a giant maze of learning with many sections to be explored. I need a map! The children are kind-hearted and hard working. I have found the teachers to be extremely welcoming and friendly. I feel like I made a good choice to come here to this amazing school.

What new experience have you had since you arrived in Vietnam?

Apart from my first experience on a scooter, I went to the Mekong Delta and sailed on two different styles of boat, one with an engine and the other was rowed by a very strong lady with two oars. It was a beautiful place to visit.

If you were writing a postcard to friends back home, what would it say?

You would love it here, please come and visit!
