Viet Nam to Welcome Peace Corps

For those of you who don't know, Obama recently visited Vietnam for a few days. One of the outcomes is that the Peace Corps has been accepted there.

For those looking to really get into the language and culture, this might represent a great opportunity:

Peace Corps’ efforts in Viet Nam will focus on English language education. Once in-country, volunteers will undergo three months of comprehensive cultural, language and technical training before they are given their volunteer assignments where they will serve for two years.

Wow, I didn't know that. How does the media manage to play up the bad stuff he gets blamed for, but not the good stuff he does?

(Don't answer that, it's a rhetorical question. I don't want a flame war)

I'll check it out!


My answer is just that it is media, and we should always form our own opinions instead of listening to what the press has to say! I wish this would have been bigger news, though. Especially since Duolingo is huge, and people taking the course could see themselves doing this.


Wish I would have strived toward a Bachelors Degree earlier in my life. As it appears to be the minimum requirement to become a competitive candidate... 囧rz
