       Welcome to Hawaii TESOL 





Spring Language Experience


Having Pho"n" with Vietnamese!

Our language experience was held Thursday, May 15th at Global Village. We experienced some delicious Vietnamese food to get our mouths warmed up. Then Dr. Hanh Thi Nguyen immersed us in a Vietnamese language crash course. All who participated had a great learning experience. Mahalo again to Dr. Hanh Thi Nguyen.
