Vietnamese for Intermediate 3 is one of a series of Vietnamese teaching materials produced by the Centre of Asia Pacific Studies, Victoria University of Technology. This book is designed for second language learners at tertiary or adult courses who have finished Vietnamese for Beginners 2.
After publishing this series for second language learners in Vietnamese, accompanied with textbooks and cassettes, the Centre for Asia Pacific Studies has received many positive comments which indicated that the materials are suitable for self-learning as well as classroom teacher-student interaction. They are used widely in Australia, overseas and even in Vietnam.
In producing this book, Mr Giuong Van Phan, Project Officer, has carried out a wide range consultation with educations, language teachers and linguists.
This book is designed for the first semester work of the second year Vietnamese as part of any degree in which Vietnamese is a major, a sub-major or an elective subject in the course structure.
The book is accompanied by two audio-cassettes and a workbook. The set of audio-cassettes contains the dialogues and oral practice in the student’s book. The workbook can be used to help the oral practice and to answer the written practice.
We have also produced the Vietnamese Interactive Book 3 which is based on this book. It is a computer assisted instruction which helps students with self-learning.
I am pleased to introduce this package to students, teachers and providers of the Vietnamese language for their convenience and use.
