Explore Vietnam

Join us for a language and cuisine online LIVE event.

Are you missing the excitement, challenge, and adrenalin that comes from traveling, learning a language, and trying new cuisine?

Is Vietnam on your travel must-see list? Or are you a complete Vietnamese foodie lover? Or even wondered if learning a language like Vietnamese might be for you?

So even though we aren’t able to travel internationally right now, we can still dream right?! And we can still have these experiences, at least in a slightly different way – and from home.

That’s why these virtual EXPLORE events are so popular right now!

So what will happen?

We will have two fantastic guests joining me for this event.

Vu Vo – the owner of Saigon Street Eats will talk to us about his favourite Vietnamese dishes. The focus will be on street food and what to look for when choosing a stall or a dish and what food not to miss when visiting Vietnam.

Shinegi Dương – a Vietnamese teacher based in Hanoi will teach us some basic Vietnamese greetings, and of course how to pronounce all the delicious food we will one day order.

Penny Wilson – me! I first visited Vietnam as a teenager in 1997 and have been learning Vietnamese, living in, working in and visiting Vietnam ever since. It’s my favourite place in the whole world and during this event I will share some of my favourite travel tips.

Why should I attend?

It allows us all a chance to experience a new destination, its language and food without having to step on a plane (or a train or an automobile)… AND gives us an opportunity to dream, keep learning and keep connecting with new experiences, languages and cultures.
