Entering Vietnam, partner countries increased into six from this year: the Philippines, Viet Nam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, and Korea.
Approximately 300 teachers have shared their passion with students in partner countries, and made efforts to raise awareness of cultural diversity within the society afterwards. The participating teachers claim that the teaching experiences in partner countries have become unforgettable memories broadening their horizons in teaching profession.
This year, the first batch of Korean teachers will be dispatched to Malaysia during June to September, and then to Indonesia (August to November), to the Philippine, Vietnam, and Mongolia(September to December).
