Inspire and develop your learners' literacy skills using photographs and stories created by children in Viet Nam.
As part of an innovative project, children from ethnic minority groups in Viet Nam were taught to use cameras and asked to capture events from their daily lives. The result is a fascinating collection of photographs and stories which can be used as a starting point for developing learners' spoken language, reading and writing skills, and visual literacy.
