Learning Express enables Singapore Polytechnic and DTU students to study life in other ASEAN countries, broaden their knowledge, improve their soft skills, practice English and make new friends. This time, they will go to Duy Xuyen in Quang Nam to learn about weaving thread into cloth, weaving sleeping-mats and broom-making. By applying their creative skills they will recommend potential new products and suggest ways to improve production, while protecting the environment.
