This introduction to Việt Nam, and to Mimi and her family, will bring into focus a dynamic emerging player on the world stage and the face of a friendly outgoing people not often seen in Western literature. This teaching unit consisting of a DVD, a book and teaching materials, has been entirely developed by Ball State and its students to introduce others to a country they have found so hospitable. During three trips to Vietnam, these students have repeatedly stated that there needs to be a way to introduce other Americans to the friends they have made half a world away. This teaching packet is the product of that desire. Welcome to Vietnam.
