II- PROJECT OVERVIEW
1. Description of Our Team
Page 3 phunghuyedu @ 2014
Our group has five members: Chu Hai Huong, DinhThi Sen, TranThi Phuong, Nguyen Thi Hong
Nhung and Dao ThiHuyenNhung. We are studying at Thai Nguyen University of foreign languages.
Tourism is an activity, which involves an urge to explore nature. It is interesting to know that we
have a great interesting finding out more about our regions. When we started to work, there is a
considerable amount of work needs to be done. Nguyen Nhungwas assigned to find out the
history and development of Tran Temple. Huong compiled information in Vieng market.
Dao Nhung’s task was to processall information, and synthesize, analyze, and derive knowledge
from it. Dinh Sen who contributed to our project and her duty was to find out information about
the cuisine in Nam Dinh. Phuong's contribution to our project on tourism was to research and find
out about “KhaiAn” festival with the help of our team members.
We always remember that we must work as a team, not as individuals. Overall, our team will be
effective. Firstly, all team members must try to give to new and good ideas and do not shut out
other members’ decision. Secondly, the team is consideredas a whole, and must try hard not to
become stuck on a single idea when it is not working. When working, our group made quick and
clear decisions and nothing can giveus more pleasure than getting a job done. Therefore, we will
be able to handle the complex planning required for our projects. Whenever team meetings were
held, we were able to meet the time, place… We have all the important ingredients required for a
All the members leaned towards organizing and untilnow, everything has been going smooth.
They all eagerly picked up the different parts of the project and when they felt that the work was
done to the best of their abilities they forwarded it to the team leader. The team leader later
compiled all the work. Untilnow, the work has been progressing in a planned manner and we hope
it continues that way.
In the course of our project, our teacher-Mr. PhungHuy also brought us information concerning
the design to build project. He also had to motivate us with the activities, such as: do homework,
watch the brochures …
2. Summary of Our Project

Our project has many places, but the most important are: Vieng market, Hai Thinh beach, Tran
Temple, Xuan Thuy national part.
During the project we have use many different programs. But for the sake of all members in group,
we all tried to complete this project on time.
3. Our Computer and Internet Access
Computer and internet access have an important role in our project. It can be said that without
them our team could not complete all the workseasily. We use the computersoftware as Microsoft
officer to make file words (making outline, drafts about spots…), we also use it to make brochure
and edit pictures. Other soft-wares like audacity and movie marker are also very useful and easy to
use if we make a video. We need the internet to find all the information, which including text
information, pictures,and video that necessary for our works (making video, brochure or
presentation). Besides, computer and internet help us to get in touch with each other (we use
Facebook and Skype) so we can share the entire information source which we could find.
Allmembers could give their comments as well asopinion for the othersso we did not need spend
much time for group meeting.
4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Tourism project is an interesting subject that each member in our group always discusses and
exchanges experience together. However, there are some barriers that we had to face.
Firstly, geographical distance is the firsttrouble. In our group, Dao Nhung and Huong come from
Dai Tu, Thai Nguyen. Their house is too far from Thai Nguyen city where we have lived, so it is
difficult for our group to see one another. Wedo not have much time to discuss directly. After the
Tet holiday, we began meeting group, but the time was limited, and Nguyen Nhung is also far from
Phuong and me. Sometimes we discussed directly at the lesson in class. We solved this problem by
learning online on the internet. Although at home we did not discuss directly, the division of works
of the team leader on the edmodo and we had many works to do and the geographical distance is
not anobstacles anymore.
Secondly, we had to face with technical obstacles. At the first lesson of project, we were so vague
about the “brochure” but thanks to the explanation ofteacher, we understood it. We were also
vague about how to make a brochure and how to design it. None of members in our group knew
how to design a brochure. We thought it was very difficult. We discussed many times about it, and
finally we chose A5 font to design it. Each member had a duty. We went toGoogle search and
YouTube to learn design brochure. We also research some brochures on the internet with the link
Page 5 phunghuyedu @ 2014
http://vietdesigner.net/2012/06/22-mau-brochure-an-tuong/however; thanks to the help of
lecturer we have learnt 4 principles to design it. These principles were very useful, but how to
make vivid brochure that ensures4 principles is also a problem. It was not easy as we thought.
Furthermore, we had to acquaint with learning on edmodo. This is a new way of learning on the
internet, so we faced some problems. We found that edomodo is sometimes difficult to send
Thirdly, in the first lesson, we planned to take a real tour in Nam Dinh province. However,we were
very anxious about the real tour. Because Tran Temple,Vieng market only took place in the early of
Tet Holiday, so it was difficult for us to have a real tour. Because Tet holiday is an opportunity for
everyone closer to their family and that time was not suitable to take a real tour. We were very
upset and bored. Because we want to be the tour guides. We solved it by chose Sen and Phuong to
take a tour and take some valuable photos about it.
Finally, thissemester required us many works to do. We had to make the group meeting every
week and spend much time for fivesubjects, but it must ensure that the time that we spend for
each subject is equal.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
The project is involved in the exhibition to create opportunities for people really understand about
Nam Dinh City. A groupwas formed with five memberscoming from differentprovinces; each
person had many opinions for the project. However, the project brings a very large effective. It
shows strength of the spirit of unity; promotes creative skills each one.

Page 6 phunghuyedu @ 2014
Like what we said before, without technology we could not complete this project. First of all, we
had to found some model tour videos and brochure on the internet to have a good look about
what we are going to do:
For making a tour video: we watched many videos on YouTube and we have learnt many things,
especially particular skills a tour guide must have. We all know that it was very difficult and we did
not have enough ability so we must practice more.
Marking brochure: Early, we did not have any idea what a brochure is until the lecturer showed us
some brochures, he also gave us many advices to make a good one. After that, the leader asked
whole team to search on the internet for a model brochure. Finally, she could find a good one and
shared it on edmodo for all members can view.
We are all students so we just use what we already have such as the computer with internet
connection and our phones…therefore, to us these machines are the most helpful. Other objects
such as usb – an external memory for computer is very useful. We usually use it to store and share
pictures, files… Because members were assigned a destination in Nam Dinh so we usually share
what we have done with other member through their computers byusb.
3) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
In the past, when talking about Nam Dinh, we only know that this is a province which is famous for
beef noodles (“pho bo”). However, when our friends introduce about it and we search its
information on the internet, we realized that Nam Dinh is a famous tourist destination with many
historical monuments, traditional villages, and beautiful beaches. In Nam Dinh, there are 1655
historical and cultural monuments. Besides, there are 70 trade villages with many trades and
traditional products, such as: carving villages, La Xuyen inlaying wood villages … So it is advantages
to organize the cultural tourism. In addition, Nam Dinh is known as the hometown of special food,
such as: “nem”, “pho”, “banhgai”… When visiting Nam Dinh, you should spend more time on
enjoying them. This is extremely wonderful.
After finishing this course, we learned many things for ourselves.
Firstly, we enrich our knowledge about Nam Dinh tourism. In past, we only knew some basic
information about this province. Tourism is discovery, so after completing the project, we
discovered many interesting tourist destination and special food in Nam Dinh.
Secondly, we learned some necessary experiences to become a tour-guide, such as: speaking
fluently, having a smooth voice, walking gracefully, expressing feelings lovely… in past, we think
that to become a tour-guide, there requires some basic factors. However, after completing the
project, we realize that there are many skills to become a good tour-guide. And this is a difficult
career which requires us to try very much.
And the last is that we had some simple and basic knowledge about designing brochure and
making tour. Although this is the first time, we have designed brochure and have been like
Page 7 phunghuyedu @ 2014
designers, our product is quite good and is accepted. To have a completed brochure, we must
arrange photos and texts correctly and suitably based on from a united layout. This is a difficult
work and requires us to be patient.
In working process, we were tired and bored in getting difficulties but we try more to get over. We
must spend much time on working and creating a nice brochure so we got many useful lessons
after this course.
