Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Hoang Anh: Vietnamese people like to socialize. At weekends or on special holidays, they like to party at home with family members and relatives. In their free time, they like socializing with friends at coffee shops or street restaurants. On weekdays, they like to go out for lunch with friends or colleagues. Vietnamese prefer to do things in groups rather than alone.
