Today we did a walking tour with Dina, she is 20 years old and studying banking. We had another student join us too, her name was Thuy Anh. They were both extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of their country. They asked us a lot of questions as they wanted to strengthen their English which made the experience more enjoyable. I highly recommend supporting these students!!
