Is there any place for foreigners in Binh Duong?

I just got here for my job any am going to stay here at least until December.
Since the company is located in Thu Dau Mot, Binh Duong, near Ho Chi Minh city.
So, I will be around this area during the week days probably.

But I do not want to be just stuck at home after work.
I would like to learn the language or meet new people.

Is there any one who has idea to get out of this situation?
Please let me know. I am listening to you.

Thank you very much for having your time.

If you succeed in learning to speak Vietnamese after work and weekends between now and December you will have my unbridled admiration.  I have met Chinese from Singapore and Hong Kong who have told me that they have given up on learning Vietnamese because the tones are so much more complex than in Mandarin.  One told me that the big difference is that an incorrect tone in Vietnamese changes meaning while a wrong tone in Mandarin just makes the speaker sound funny.  Learning Vietnamese is an admirable pursuit but it is unlikely that it can be done in 3 months.

I have some Viet friends here...one is named "Nhi"

Me: Knee
Other friends: NO! KNEE!
Me: Knee
Other friends: NO! KNEE!
Me: Knee?
Other friends: NO! KNEE!

I'll be damned if they aren't saying "KNEE"...but apparently, they're not :)

Zep--

Thank very much for your advice.

On weekends you can get out of your "situation" via cheap bus to Saigon. Visit and take a class. Stay overnight in a hostel, also cheap.

Would you like to learn some Vietnamese. I want to learn some Korean. It 's great if we can exchange

If you want to practice English, I can help you on Sunday. But you have to come near my place since I don't have anything to commute on the day.

I would like to know the paces where I can meet new friends while being here. It would be great if there is any English speaker community.

Hi.
Actually in Binh Duong we do not have any place focus on foreigner services like District 1 HCMC. You can find a lot of place who only looking for the passenger or traveler in Pham Ngu Lao or Bụi Vien Street.  In Binh duong we don't have. But you can find some restaurant like club, restaurants, spa, cafe around Becamex tower or CHANH Nghia ward.
If you want to explore or meet some one who can speak English I will let you know more detail. Thanks

Thank you very much. Is there any good restaurants or bars near there?
