Meet your teacher, Bình Minh

Bình Minh came to New York City three years ago, when she immersed herself in teaching Vietnamese at the Vietnam Heritage Center and participating in the cultural events.  She encourages students to learn more about Vietnamese culture through music and film to supplement the class.  She acts as a bridge for people to feel closer to Vietnam and help Vietnamese-American to shorten the language gap with their family members.   She reads Vietnamese books to improve her own vocabulary.
