My name is Jennie Tran. You can call me cô Jennie or cô Thuận. I’ve taught Vietnamese at various places, including Kaimuki Highschool and Kapiolani Community College. In Fall 2022, I started teaching VIET 201 here at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I have also been teaching German at UH Manoa since 2012.

About my educational background: I received my B.A. in Second Language Studies, M.A. in European Languages and Literature, and Ph.D. in Linguistics. I love teaching Vietnamese and am happy to see students enjoy learning this language and get better in their reading and writing skills. I value students’ enthusiasm and efforts, and I’m excited to see students become more and more proficient throughout the semester. Besides, I respect each student’s dialectal background and motivate students to value both the Northern and Southern accent. Above all, I encourage students to be proud and to appreciate the beauty of the Vietnamese language.
