Italian language

The best Italian Ambassadors in Vietnam are the many Vietnamese students who decide to study our language and who become extraordinary connecting elements between our cultures. General interest for our country, desire to learn more about specific aspects of Italian culture, business needs are just some of the reasons that lead boys and girls in Vietnam to undertake a course of study that contemplates the Italian language in its curriculum.

The Embassy has stable and fruitful contacts with the universities where our language is taught and supports them both from a financial point of view, thanks to the contributions provided for by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and from an academic point of view, through the participation to seminars and events that aim at involving all students in the cultural activities of the Embassy.

In Hanoi there are four universities that offer Italian courses:
– Hanoi University, with the Department of Italian. The Italian bachelor leads to professions such as interpreter, translator or touristic guide;
– Thang Long University: Italian is an optional subject in the context of the different degree programs;
– Phuong Dong University: Italian is an optional subject in the context of the different degree programs;
– University of Languages and International Studies (ULIS): Italian is an optional subject.

Another aspect on which the attention of the Embassy is focused is the translation of Italian works in Vietnamese language, for which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation pays the contributions to the Vietnamese publishing houses.

Even in this way we can increase the knowledge of our culture by the Vietnamese public. The Embassy encourages, therefore, the publishers to select Italian works of interest and to present a plan for their translation.
