Vietnam has 54 recognised ethnic minority groups, each with its own language and culture. In 2017 some 20 cities and provinces around Vietnam organised ethnic minority language courses, while many others include ethnic minority languages in the school curriculum.
In Nov 2020, TS. Phan Lương Hùng, Head of the Department of Ethnic minority languages of Vietnam, at the Institute of Linguistics of Vietnam, delivered a fascinating overview of the language structure in Vietnam.
Allowing for his busy schedule. Hùng has kindly agreed to deliver a series of small group, round table discussions on different topics relating to languages in Vietnam.
This first detailed discussion is on: How to create a new writing system for a language
