HAØ NOÄI face to­day while ob­serv­ing life around them,” said the OIF of­fi­cial.

Vöông Baïch Lieân, one of the con­test judges, said she was also im­pressed with the themes of this year’s con­test which ranged from cul­ture, tourism, gas­tron­omy of Vieät Nam to burn­ing so­cial prob­lems in the coun­try’s so­ci­ety.

“Many ar­ti­cles are writ­ten in good French and have a good style,” said Lieân.

Lieân be­lieved in the im­por­tance of the con­test, say­ing it pro­vided an op­por­tu­nity for Viet­namese and for­eign par­tic­i­pants to ex­press their feel­ings, emo­tions and points of view about the coun­try, while high­light­ing the rich­ness and di­ver­sity of the French lan­guage.

“It of­fers chances for con­tes­tants to fa­mil­iarise them­selves with jour­nal­ism as well as to in­tro­duce Vieät Nam’s cul­ture and peo­ple to the com­mu­nity of 80 Fran­co­phonie coun­tries,” ac­cord­ing to Lieân who used to win the first prize of the con­test held in 2016.

She hoped this con­test would be more widely pro­moted by so­cial net­works and me­dia, and meet­ings of the or­gan­is­ers with stu­dents in dif­fer­ent uni­ver­si­ties in Vieät Nam.

“It will prob­a­bly en­cour­age more and more young peo­ple in Vieät Nam to learn French and help Vieät Nam strengthen its ac­tive role in the Fran­co­phonie in the fu­ture,” said Lieân. — VNS
