Classical guitar teacher

Hello Hanoians, I am looking for a classical guitar teacher. I'm looking for someone who has a broad musical background, e.g. Baroque-Romantic-Modern playing styles as well as samba-bossa-blues styles. The teacher must be experienced and is professionally active as a teacher/musician. Please contact me if you know of someone or are someone who fits the description. Lessons can be in English or basic Vietnamese. Thank you.

Best Hospital for WP medical check

No luck on the search for this question. I've been given a list of 4 hospitals that do the Work Permit medical check: E SOS Nghi Huu Bach Mai SOS won't be an option for me because it's so expensive. Can anyone provide any current reports on the medical check experience recently. Cost? Thanks.

Live football/soccer match in Hanoi?

Hi everyone, I'm a huge football/soccer fan and am wondering about getting tickets to watch a live match at one of the stadiums? Is there a Vietnam league or SE Asia league that comes through here to play? I've been asking around for a while and no one seems to know anything about it...are the stadiums even used for matches? Any info would be great. Thanks!

best way to learn vietnamese

I will be in here for a year or so and would like to learn a bit of vietnamese. I was wondering what was the best way to do this and would like your input on the following questions: 1- Are there good schools with flexible schedules, anyone in particular? 2- How hard is it to learn (I've had contradicting opinions on this one). 3- What about private lessons, are they worth it? What is the usual price? any other advice(where to buy books, dictionaries) is appreciated. Thanks!

Anyone know somewhere to buy good quality essential oil and oil burner in Hanoi? I have seen them in L'Occitane, but not really a good range of oils. (in particular I am after ylang ylang, patchouli and sandal wood)

should the man pay the bill? culture difference?

Tell me guys when you go out with a Viet girl, will you be willing to pay the bill? Really I never pay the bill when I am out with male friends, not to say boyfriend, either Vietnamese or foreigner. I think it is normal in our culture. And never I got any complaint about that. Untill I met my foreign bf last year. We went out for drinks, only drinks, for sometimes and of course he paid. One time, we had lunch together, and he asked me to share the bill in front of the waitress. For me payin...

Swimming lessons?

Any idea of a good place to learn to swim in Hanoi? UNIS has swimming lessons but they don't start again until September. I would prefer private lessons, but could deal with a group situation as long as the classes are for absolute beginners. The Sheraton offers no lessons either (although you could use the pool for a fee), so I'm at a loss. Any ideas?

Is it essential to study Vietnamese?

Do you think it is essential to study Vietnamese when you will stay here for over one year or just learn it for fun? I know some of people coming here and learn vietnamese for their works and others study it because of loving this country. How do you think? I know that learning Vietnamese seems much harder than english or any other languages. What is the most difficult when you do it?

Ho Ngoc ha--The Hot Euphemism

Ho Ngoc Ha--the Hot Euphemism THN OI! As much as I love toilet bowls, I need to give a shout out to THN.Hanoi massive is a toilet bowl--everything disappears. Typically, I can find information on THN. So Im pro-THN. But I remember creating Ho Ngoc Ha threads, and they have disappeared. SO now Im angry. Also, Im a classical Deweyite. I believe that people do not need to be pumped full of information. They should follow threads of inquiry. And I will pretend to be apolitical for a sec...
