@Mabool: I don't study her anymore this year. So I can't take her image.
.
@Nikita: They respect ao dai so much. I'm surprised

Hey but here's some image of my class, if you want to watch. And guess who is me, too.

I don't know you all look the same.
Just kidding. Seriously though I have no idea.

But what do you think about students in my country?
Post 19 Jan 2010, 02:59
I feel it is a major generalisation to say "western" culture is bourgeois or decadent in and of itself. Firstly, is there really such a thing as "western"? The various European cultures vary a great deal within each other. If we look to the base culture, that is to say the language, traditional dress, old style pre-enlightenment ways, how is any of this imperialistic? Like Nikita identified, the traditional culture is not imperialistic, rather the modern fake popular culture is. The latter is hardly "western" in any sense of the word and is more international, merely it finds its base within the "western" middle class. In future, please do not insult European civilisation and customs or put them down as inferior merely because of westernism, colonialism or any of the philosophies and cultural practices which developed from these. At its base, at its ethnic, linguistic and cultural base, European culture is not imperialistic. Evidence of this is also to be found in the numerous European nations who never went imperialistic, i.e. Lithuania, Finland and Bosnia.

Furthermore, traditional European culture and society are quite collectivist. In the old times, say in Celtic civilisation, there was a rigid authoritarian structure. Furthermore, in old times, there was little homosexuality and people were expected to dress decently, whilst decadent music and art forms were frowned upon. Its only recently that "western" culture has developed from a European one.

You know what, I think the Europe born capitalism and imperialism, therefore the Western culture is nowadays used to call the bourgeoise culture.

@CPSR : You all looks so older than us in the Long An province's countryside.
Is you class "choosen ones" ? (for being 9a1 ?)

I love how virtually every Asian girl is cute.
Post 21 Jan 2010, 13:56
Asian girls. I don't think you can't seperate a Chinese or a Japanese from the Vietnamese. We are probably darker than them.

Do you recognize who I am ?
Post 21 Jan 2010, 16:55
Filipino girls are the hottest
Post 21 Jan 2010, 17:12
Yeah, Filipino girls are awesome. And no, I guess I can't distinguish between Asians.
Post 22 Jan 2010, 10:15
As if we can distinguish two blue-eyed and blond-haired Caucasoids.

@nikita: in my school, the 9th grade has 12 classes and 8 of them are the "choosen one" (as you said). My class is one of 8 classes.
My class is Biology specialists' class.
(But it doesn't include me)
@Mabool: Well, of course
.Can you guess who is my close girlfriend? (not lover)She's in the 3rd photo too.
@everyone: (in the third photo) I'm the student with darkest skin and stand in the behind row. (I'm male)

You should use girl friend or female friend. Girlfriend causes a lot of misunderstanding.

That's quite a lot. There are 8 class in the 9th grade in my school, and my class 9A4 is the choosen one. However, they are no specialists, because they are selected by their marks in 8th grade.

"Phở" or pho soup is the traditional unique food of Vietnam. It has big but slim noodles, and it must be cooked altogether with beef. You should eat it when it's hot, or it may not taste good. I ate those once or twice a week, and certainly it depends on who cooked it. If you want phở, do not eat at somewhere nobody comes. By the way, where did you eat it ? Russia ?

What's a "chosen" class?
Post 24 Jan 2010, 16:10
@mabool: It's some kind of sophisticated problems here. I'll give an example: there are 12 classes. There are usual class and special class ("chosen class", as Nikita said). The usual class includes bad and average students who aren't particularly good at any subject. The chosen class sometimes includes students who are good at all subjects, or sometime it includes students who are good at a particularly subject and they will study further knowledge about that subject, but they maybe not good overall as some students in usual class. My class is a chosen class in Biology, so about 3/5 of my class study more than usual in Biology.
Chosen classes takes place on every Saturday at my school. Besides "chosen classes", there are sub-chosen classes which includes students who want to study further knowlegde but are not good enough to participate in the chosen classes and are in both usual classes and chosen classes but in another subject. I study in English sub-chosen classes though my class is Biology chosen class.
You don't need to understand this because my English is not good enough to explain this clearly to you.
@nikita: well, thanks. But have you found me and the girl I've mentioned? Anyway, I like her.
Post 25 Jan 2010, 13:10
My chosen class is entirely different. The "elites" of the grade gather in one class, and that's all.

I can't know exactly who you are in those picture. Do you wear glasses ?
Post 25 Jan 2010, 17:20
Yes. And I'm the person with darkest skin in 3rd picture.
Post 30 Jan 2010, 04:51
@ CPSR + Nikita: Are you two in the same class?
