LEARNING ABOUT THE VIETNAMESE CULTURE Cultural Diversity Interview: Learning about the Vietnamese Culture Today I am speaking with a friend, Linh Tran, who is a fellow student here at LSUA. Linh is originally from Vietnam. She moved to America when she was 19 in search of more opportunities and a higher quality of education. I am very excited to interview her in hopes of learning about a culture that is very different from my own. I asked Linh several questions about herself, her culture, and some similarities and differences between the America and Vietnamese cultures, which she answered via email. After reviewing her responses, I was fortunate enough to be able to interview her face to face and elaborate on some interesting topics. Below are my questions (Q), her answers (A), and further details that I discovered during our interview. 1. Q: What is your name? A: Linh Tran (In Vietnam, it’s different order, so my name is: Tran Linh) In Vietnam there are only a few different last names, although, they are not related. People still call each other by their first name but their name will appear written as last name followed by their first name. It was also interesting to find out they write the date differently. We would write the date as November 8, 2016 and they would write it as 8/November/2016. 2. Q: What is the meaning of your name in your country, culture, or language? A: Sparkle Q: Is it a common name in your culture? A: Yes, very common 2

LEARNING ABOUT THE VIETNAMESE CULTURE When role is called in class there are so many people with the same last and first names that the students are assigned letters. Example: Linh A, Linh B, Linh C, etc. In fact, it would not be uncommon for there to be at least ten Tran Linhs in one class.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
