Meet your teacher
Trung Nguyen is a native Saigonese who arrived in New York City in 2017 with his love for languages and arts. For several years, he taught Vietnamese to expats in Vietnam as well as English to kids and adults. He focused on teaching Vietnamese pronunciation and how to use it naturally and culturally appropriately. Trung participates with VHC as a way to give back to his community, with a hope to share Vietnamese to more and more people. He also has a background in Journalism, so his vocabulary is rich and expressive.
