The event will be held at Goethe-Institut Hanoi, located in Ba Dinh district on September 29.
Many kinds of taster classes will be offered to enable participants to learn some words and communication strategies in English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Finnish, Czech and Spanish. Brief, fun sessions lasting 30 minutes each are scheduled for the entire afternoon, and aim at three groups: children, teenagers, and adults.
