David On

“Hello, my name is David On and I am from London, England.  My favourite football team is Arsenal FC and my hobby is ironing.  I have lived in Vietnam since 2006 and I really love it here, especially the food.  When I am not working you can find me in a restaurant eating ‘fried chicken with rice’ or ‘banh cuon’, which are two of my favourite dishes in the world.  In the class room my teaching is very much focused on speaking activities and essay writing, so if you see me in the class room, be ready to share your ideas with me through some speaking and get ready to write a few academic style essays”.
