Yoon Sun Min from Korea is a student of the 8th grade class in Tran Dai Nghia Gifted High School in Ho Chi Minh City.
She studied in the International Primary School and moved to Hoa Binh Primary School in District 1 in the end of the 4th grade class.
She said that she is living in Vietnam and will not be Vietnamese if she can not speak fluently the native language.
Her young sister, Yoon Su Min, 6th grader of Tran Dai Nghia Gifted High School, speaks Vietnamese language better.
Su Min graduated from the primary school and passed the high school entrance examination with high marks.
“Studying at Vietnamese schools helps me learn Vietnamese language and communicate with local people well,” she said.
