Chrysalis Video Competition – a trial for Foreign Languages students at Van Lang University

(VLU, 31/7/2021– Commenced on 07 June 2021 and ran for a month; the Chrysalis Video Competition had announced its champion, who was Dang Quoc Trong – PR student of course 25 (Honors program).

Recently, the pandemic outbreak prevented Van Lang students from studying on campus and switched to online learning. Therefore, the weekly sessions of Chrysalis English Club by the Faculty of Finance – Banking could not occur as planned. To offer an alternative for the students to practice their English, the Chrysalis Video Competition was organized on 07 June 2021 to create an opportunity for the students to debate and act on camera confidently.
