  • Chữ Nôm là một loại hình văn tự do người Việt sáng tạo ra dựa trên cơ sở của chữ Hán. Sự ra đời của chữ Nôm là kết quả của quá trình sáng tạo không ngừng trong tư duy, nhận thức của cha ông ta. Ngay từ khi hình thành, chữ Nôm đã khẳng định được vị thế, tầm quan trọng của nó đối với xã hội của người Việt. Cùng với sự tồn tại của chữ Hán, chữ Nôm có không gian hành chức riêng, đa dạng, là phương tiện để ghi lại đời sống văn hóa dân gian, sáng tác văn học, kinh tế- xã hội hay giao lưu văn hóa. Nó là cứ liệu quan trọng cho các nhà khoa học, nhà nghiên cứu tìm hiểu về lịch sử, văn học, văn hóa của dân tộc. Nghiên cứu về chữ Nôm dưới góc độ văn tự học, chúng tôi đi vào nghiên cứu chữ...

  • Classroom interaction has been considered one of the most important pedagogical research topics in language classrooms in recent decades, mostly due to the influence of the Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky. Interactions in language classrooms are important social activities for students through which they not only construct knowledge, but also build confdence and identity as competent language users. Many research methodologies have been employed to investigate English language teaching (ELT) classroom interaction. This paper aims to provide a review of the conceptualization of classroom interaction. It also states the conception of classroom interaction from second language ac...

  • Although co-construction of writing is well established in literacy education literature (Cazden, 1996; Mehan, 1979), little is known about the application of this pedagogical strategy in second and foreign language teaching contexts. Also, student talk plays an important role in learning to write, yet there is limited understanding of how students collaborate to build knowledge about writing. This paper, frst, conceptualises coconstruction of writing, and then reports on a study of focus group conversations involving second-year students in an English majored program. My analysis identifed the collaborative talk patterns of group conversation among students. The fndings suggest...

  • Concepts are the core of terminology because any term essentially reflects a specialized concept that belongs to a concept system. In the world, terminologists have investigated concept systems in some disciplines including chemistry, automobile industry, computer engineering, legislature, etc. but there has been little terminological literature discussing concept systems in Transport Construction Engineering (TCE). Most of terminology works in Vietnam tend to focus on statistical surveys of term forms rather than term contents, which represent specialized concepts. These authors have looked at terms as discrete units rather than interconnected ones within conceptual systems. Th...

  • This is a survey research conducted at a Vietnam-based police school. Its main purpose is to fnd out the students’ needs analysis that will be likely to be used for implementation of new ESP syllabus design in the upcoming time. To achieve this purpose, questionnaire for students was employed to collect data with an intent to discover their needs for ESP. The participants in this study comprised 50 second-year credit students from the People Police’s Academy. The fndings acquired from this study revealed that several aspects in the current ESP course book that were not suitable for the students’ needs will need to be reviewed or re-designed in new ESP syllabi. Some of the sugge...

Bài viết chỉ ra rằng, lịch sử tốt đẹp của tình hữu nghị Việt - Ấn là nền tảng vững chắc cho sự phát triển quan hệ giữa Việt Nam và Ấn Độ. Bên cạnh đó, vị thế của Việt Nam cũng như của Ấn Độ trong bối cảnh mới, đặc biệt là nhu cần cần có nhau của hai quốc gia trước mối đe dọa chung về an ninh, là động lực quan trọng thúc đẩy mối quan hệ này phát triển. Tuy nhiên, thực trạng về hợp tác kinh tế là một vấn đề tồn tại trong quan hệ giữa Việt Nam và Ấn Độ, có thể làm giảm tính thực chất của quan hệ chính trị - an ninh Việt - Ấn.

In most universities in Vietnam, ESP is designed under the requirements of each university’s Training Curriculum with the purpose of helping their students to be well-equipped with language in context, a set of professional skills and particular job-related functions. Meeting students’ specifc needs, using underlying methodologies and activities of the discipline and general English, and focusing on the language appropriate to these activities are all of the main concerns of English for Specifc Purposes (ESP) studies.

  • This article discusses the concept of learner autonomy in learning foreign languages, some misunderstandings of learner autonomy, and the roles of teachers in fostering learner autonomy to be carried out with students of an intensive course at a Vietnamese university. It challenges traditional role of teachers in the past as a transmitter in class. In order to develop learner autonomy, it is necessary for teachers to be in other forms of roles such as manager and organizer, facilitator and counselor. In the context of an intensive course, this issue is relatively unfamiliar and thus little investigated. This article will conclude with suggestions on the appropriate roles of lan...

  • There has been an increasing body of research that suggests teachers to do research in their own classrooms in order to improve the quality of teaching and learning. In this sense, action research has been considered an effective professional development tool by several educational researchers, and English language teaching profession is of no exception. However, there usually exists the distance between researchers’ suggested practices and practitioner’s beliefs and real actions. This study is aimed at investigating how Vietnamese EFL teachers at a university (N=30) perceive action research itself and the roles action research can play in those teachers’ professional developmen...

  • The relationship between emotion and language has appealed to linguists as well as psychologists. It is language that enables us to communicate our emotion to other people. Through language we can articulate our inner feelings by referring to our emotional states explicitly (e.g. with nouns or adjectives like happiness, sadness, anger or happy, depressed, angry) or implicitly by using, for example, fgurative language such as metaphors, thereby expressing evaluative meanings. It is a well established fact that abstract and mental entities are often conceptualized with the help of metaphoric language. Figurative descriptions help us to communicate subjective, international phenom...
