"Sowing" Vietnamese language in the US

Before going to the US, Professor Binh taught Vietnamese for more than
ten years at the Lomonosov University, Russia. In Russia, he compiled
some Vietnamese teaching books. The last book he published in Russia
is "Vietnamese Language Curriculum for 1st Year Students," a joint
work with two Russian co-workers, in 1989. This book is still used at
the Lomonusov University, the Moscow International Relationship
Institute, the Russian University of Humanity Sciences, and the
Military University in Moscow.

In the US, some universities are using Professor Binh's "Elementary
Vietnamese" book, which goes with eight CDs. This book was published
for the first time in 1999 by the Charles E. Tuttle Publishing, Inc.
It was re-printed several times.
