Tuoitrenews, officially launched on June 18, 2010, is celebrating its 2nd birthday today. Before sending a Happy Birthday wish to ourselves, we would like to express our thanks and gratitude to readers for supporting us over the years.
“Having a new news gateway is like having one more useful utility to life,” reader Elena from Russia told us during our very first days of launching the site.
With the orientation of becoming an English-language newswire that delivers the most credible, accurate, and up-to-date news in Vietnam, tuoitrenews.vn -- the English online version of Tuoi Tre Newspaper, has been constantly sharpening coverage contents in its old sections while having introduced several new pages to provide more utilities to readers, especially expats living in Vietnam, as well as those who plan to come and work in the country.
While expat readers in the past only had the City Diary page to share and discuss their fascinating (and also unexciting) stories, they now have more choices with 2 new pages – Richie heart VN and The Expat File .
On the former, Vietnamese readers can enhance their comprehension and translation skills by reading bilingual articles written by Californian Richie Humphrey about his life in Vietnam.
Meanwhile, The Expat File presents intriguing stories by Scott Harris, an American in Hanoi and James Allen, a Brit in HCMC, who share their culture shock, confusion, excitement or homesickness to other expat readers every Monday and Thursday.
Besides, our Wheres & Whats section offers foreigners valuable information on a wide range of products and services including resorts, hotels, spas, and fitness clubs in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and other parts of Vietnam.
Expat readers can also benefit from the Vietnamese for Expats page launched since the beginning of this year where they can learn the Vietnamese language free of charge.
As for Vietnamese readers, they too can find interesting and useful English lessons on the English Study (Nhip cau Anh ngu) section.
Vietnamese readers can also practice listening skills thanks to our audios and videos presented on our Media page.
To help readers keep in touch with the ongoing Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine, we have launched the Enjoy Euro with Tuoitrenews , where news, results, analysis, photos, and videos about the championship will be constantly updated.
In its new age, our team is committed to improving coverage to be more newsworthy, credible, accurate, and updated.
We are set to deliver more reflexive reports about Vietnam in all aspects, and also aim to become a rendezvous for readers to read, to share, and to understand more and have a greater love for Vietnam.
Happy birthday to TuoiTreNews!
