    No you're wrong. You must have met some kids with special IT classes, but that would be no more than 5%, or even 2% of Vietnamese students. I'm in Vietnam and I can tell you that.

    We do study some thing called coding, PASCAL as I remember. Believe me, we study only for the grades and quickly forget everything we learn after finishing the exams. Even my teacher once said "Why you may find this useless and inapplicable is because it is. It is put into our program just for you to develop logical thinking (?!) like Maths and physics and stuff."

    Things we study in Vietnam are all theories, very time-consuming, boring, and impractical. I don't know you would appreciate that.
