English Language Fellow Christopher McDonnell joined 12 participants of the English Language Club at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Foreign Languages and Information Technology. The club members, third and fourth year students at the university, invited McDonnell to the club and asked if he would act as their mentor during his fellowship. The English Club will meet every Friday for English language round tables and discussions, which McDonnell will facilitate.

Along with the weekly meetings, Christopher will also hold a monthly event at the university for club members, which will be open to all students at the university. Events will include academic workshops for students to gain soft-skills such as interviewing, resume writing, and test preparation.
