Essay topic: You tell a foreigner about your beloved homeland

your beloved homeland

Our country has an S-shape, stretching from the South China Sea to Ca Mau cape with a surface of 320.000 square kilometers and a population of more than seventy million. Most people live in agriculture.

The Red River and the Mekong River deltas are the two rice baskets of the whole country. Vietnam is holding a third place among the rice-exporting countries in the world. Our Vietnamese people, through many years living under the yoke of French colonialists, Japanese fascists, and American Imperialists had to undergo great hardships and sufferings.

But with an unyielding spirit and with the wise leadership of the Vietnamese Communist Party the Vietnamese people launched a long and courageous struggle against foreign invaders and finally succeeded in sweeping all of them out of the country.

On April 30, 1975, we were able to restore our whole freedom and independence. The entire country has been reunified from North to South. The Dien Bien Phu Victory and the Great Victory of Spring 1975 are the most glorious feats of arms in Vietnamese History.

No sooner had peace been restored on our territory than we began to heal the wounds of the atrocious war. In our nation’s reconstruction, we have been helped wholeheartedly by our friends from five continents. We are always grateful for this precious help and contribution.

Rich in natural resources and abundant in minerals, our beloved Vietnam with its industrious and creative people will be one of the wealthiest and most powerful countries in South East Asia in years to come.
