Language exchange festival welcomes APEC Year 2017

Vietnam's first language exchange festival took place in Danang city last weekend to promote foreign language competency among local students and teachers.

The two-day event featured language tests, presentations about APEC countries, art programs, and a performance demonstrating a folk dance of each of the 21 APEC members. Vietnamese students demonstrated foreign languages and foreign students showed off their Vietnamese skills.

Participants watched a presentation about the endangered red-shanked douc langur, which has been selected as the symbol of the 2017 APEC Year.
