Explore the art of English through
Vietnamese folktales

As folklore, fairy tales and legends are mirrors of a country’ s culture, Everest aims to empower each young member of our generation to be a storyteller, who can confidently re-tell Vietnamese stories to international friends.

We rewrite, translate and visualize Vietnamese folklore stories that passed down verbally from generation to generation. The project is a not-for-profit professional association of educators at Everest Education, dedicated to pass on the love of Vietnamese folktales to children and adults all over the world – for Vietnamese students to learn English – and for non-Vietnamese to learn more about our amazing culture.


Enhance active listening skills with our illustrative videos

We transform Vietnamese folktales into illustrated animation, read by native speakers. Children can watch, listen and learn natural and authentic English in Vietnamese traditional contexts.

Our educational videos tap into a child’s inherent curiosity and enable them to learn by being visually stimulated and academically challenged at the same time.

Vietnamese folktale – Why toads rule the sky.

Inspire the love of reading with our ebooks


Our ebook helps parents and teachers extend the learning beyond the video. The ebooks are perfect supplements to the animated version, as they allow children to read along while listening, catch up with the flow more easily, have time to reflect, and identify the moral of the story.

Each ebook provides:

  • Written version of the story in both English and Vietnamese
  • Vocabulary pages
  • Guided reading questions to engaging children in discussion
  • Activity sheets
  • Board games
