Vietnamese Student Stories | The Future.

These stories are about what the students think will happen in the future.

I have also got them to correct by using Grammarly and Quillbot.

What is Grammarly?

“Grammarly is a Ukrainian-origin American-headquartered cross-platform cloud-based writing assistant that reviews spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity, engagement, and delivery mistakes. It uses AI to identify and search for an appropriate replacement for the mistake it locates” source;. Wikipedia

Grammarly can help you minimize writing errors and find the perfect words to express yourself in a variety of ways, from grammar and spelling to style and tone. Grammarly will provide you real-time comments on Gmail, Google Docs, Twitter, LinkedIn, and practically anywhere else you write.

Grammarly is a writing aid that provides specific recommendations to help you improve your writing — and it goes far beyond grammar. You can rest assured that your writing is not only accurate, but also clear and succinct.

 

What is Quillbot?

QuillBot is a paraphrase tool that writers use to improve their writing. QuillBot stands out from other paraphrase tools because of its unique AI functionality, which doesn’t simply replace words with synonyms. Every line is paraphrased in such a way that the reader understands it completely.

Students benefit greatly from using a paraphrase tool since it rewords paragraphs into multiple forms to assist them grasp the value of what is being said, what should be remembered, and what may be ignored in a paragraph.

It can also assist you as a teacher in writing more quickly. A writing assistance / paraphrasing tool will come in handy for assignments for your master’s or PhD, student feedback, and any other type of writing. And there is a free version.

Students Stories about the future.

And finally here we are. This helps understand the students way of thinking and what they believe the future may hold for them. The nicknames were chosen by the students as it is good when learning a new language to have a virtual name.

Every day, technology advances, making our lives more comfortable. Many inventions are developed that have a wide range of applications. However, we now see young people addicted to their computers in coffee shops, parks, restaurants, even classrooms.

In the age of technology, communication issues cause relationships to break down or fall apart. Close ties between family members, friends, and society are eroding as a result of a lack of understanding and sympathy for one another.

I believe that in the future, robots will be able to work and communicate in the same way that people do. Self-driving cars, for example.

I think in the future the technology will develop more and more.: Guided Robots, Sweat-powered Watches, Time-Tracking T-shirts and many more things that mankind is looking for and waiting for. In the future anything can become a reality .

Technology has made our lives easier and better through better communication The role of technology has succeeded in making  communication easier and better for us. Before that, (several decades ago) we had to send and wait for messages for days and even, in some cases, months.

And we can clearly see the changes that have taken place. Now, all we need is just a few fingers on our smartphone to send mail, send messages to our loved ones or office colleagues. The user experience and interface have been drastically improved and will be even further improved upon with the upcoming modern technology.

I believe that current technology aids us in communicating better, because it facilitates and accelerates conversation. But we can’t interact using technology if we don’t have access to the internet. I believe that in the future, current technology will make people’s lives easier, such as having a robot do housework or a self-driving car, which I hope will happen because I am too lazy to do the housekeeping.

 

My Thoughts.

These were all written by my students who are in the 14 – 15 year old age bracket. I hope it gives you some insight into the way the students think and express their ideas.

Vietnam is a country of extremes, you can either hate it or love it. But there is always something interesting happening. One of the things that fascinates me are the old propaganda posters. Below, I have added some of my favorites.

Vietnam Propaganda posters.

Often thought to be solely concerned with the war and the liberation of land, Vietnamese propaganda posters promoted peace, education, and the development of the country’s industrial and agricultural potentials. In reality, they are still utilized to connect with the public and to preserve this distinctive and iconic art style across the country.

Propaganda posters from Vietnam are more than just wonderful works of art. Vietnamese art is just as important as historical writings and documents from the time period. Propaganda posters were intended to communicate information, boost morale, and encourage patriotism.

You can find over 150 Propaganda Posters ==> HERE<==

Final Thoughts.

Vietnam is a country that is a mix of the old and the new. You will be hard-pressed to find a country the same as Vietnam. It will challenge you, take your breath away one minute and annoy you the next. Every day is a new adventure with the inquisitive and friendly locals.

I have been teaching English in Vietnam now for 15 years and I hope this inspires you to learn more about Vietnam. You can look at my other “blogs”  ==> HERE <==

  1. Hello, 

    It was the country of Vietnam that got my attention. When you coupled it with using Grammarly and Quillbot to help your students improve their English, that increased my fascination. 

    I am familiar with the free version of Grammarly and have found it extremely helpful. Eventually, I will get the Premium version. I had not heard of Quillbot and will be checking that out. 

    A friend who grew up across the street from me moved to Vietnam, got married, and has a child. He works in the medical profession and has created a foundation to help elementary school poor children with school supplies. Through him, I have learned a bit more about Vietnam. He echoes your description of a country that can delight as well as annoy. 

    I was impressed by the sample writing of your teenaged students. I also commend you on the good work you are doing.

    All the best to you.

    • Thanks Edwin for commenting. I think the new generation of Vietnamese will totally change their country and are willing and able to use technology to improve themselves. I have found them to be very friendly and willing to work hard to make a better life for themselves and their family.

  2. I think that using technology and these helpful programs make writing easier for everyone who has various tasks. Our day’s students are so privileged to have this opportunity to improve their writing through Grammarly and Quillbot. I don’t know much about Vietnam, but I enjoy reading your article and your student’s thoughts. Your students can share their opinion and know-how to write well in English thanks to your teaching process. Keep going with your good job.  I use Grammarly, too, and from today, I will explore Quillbot, also.

    Thank you for sharing
