Attending the event were teachers from various periods, students, parents, leaders of Vietnam's representative offices and representatives of Vietnamese community associations in Czech.

Since 2003, with a strong commitment to promoting the mother tongue, the centre has helped over 2,000 students acquire proficiency in the language over the past 20 years.

In 2009, Vietnamese Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong visited the facility, highlighting the significance of the teaching and studying of Vietnamese overseas.

Addressing the ceremony, President of the Overseas Vietnamese Association in the Czech Republic Nguyen Duy Nhien said the community places importance on the preservation and maintenance of the Vietnamese culture and language serving its sustainable development.

According to the Party General Secretary, community leaders have shown their commitment through various means, such as organising summer camps, promoting cultural programmes, and language competitions to help young members get access to the Vietnamese language.
