Today is the second new moon after the winter solstice. Welcome to the Year of the Horse. I just got home from the most amazing Lion Dance performance I've ever seen. I'm looking forward to when we will have some languages from cultures that celebrate this time of year.

For now, allow me to follow a Vietnamese tradition and give you money in a red envelope. Our lingots are already conveniently red, so comment here if you want one.

Wow, I am impressed that you knew about our tradition. I was given a lot of lucky money this morning :)

The majority of my students are Vietnamese. I wouldn't be a very good teacher if I didn't learn about their culture.

Yah, I'm in mainland China this year and got my first red envelope as a gift yesterday. I felt really embarrassed and didn't want to take it actually, but she wouldn't take it back.

Chào :) Bước đầu sẽ là tiếng Anh dành cho người Việt. Sau đó Duo sẽ mở một reversed course học tiếng Việt từ tiếng Anh. Hiện tại đang có 1 list dài ngôn ngữ sắp thêm vào, và chưa biết khi nào tới tiếng Việt. Chắc do số application quá ít để họ ưu tiên cho tiếng Việt. Nếu có thể bạn apply nha, có thêm 1 contributor. Cảm ơn nhiều :)
