volcano in Mexico, also in the world. It appeared in 1943. To day, it is only 66 years old.
It’s special because the development of the volcano was seen by human beings. On the
afternoon 20, 1943, on the cornfields of Pulido, Paricutin Volcano began by a fissure. At
that time, Mr Pulido, his wife and his son were floughing their fields to ready the fields for
spring crop and saw directly when the volcano started to erupt. It’s very amazing that day
by day, a volcano developed under the fields where the villagers did their work. Beside
Pulido family, there were some people saw in front of their eyes when the volcano started
This story improve that Paricutin is an unique volcanoe. It’s the story of Placo. He
said that when he was 9 years
old in 1943, the year Paricutin
volcano started erupting his
father was working in Pulido’s
cornfields. When it happened,
his mother was preparing dinner
and he was dropping lived lizard
in girldpants and all the thing
nine-years-kid did. The famer in
the fields witnessed. The ground
crack opened in one thunder
rumbing and out of this open
fissure came the strong smell of
rotten eggs. But he said that it wasn’t rotten eggs and sulphur from beneath the earth’s
crusted which was rising to the surface of the fields. So magic! Human beings saw all the
development of this volcano. After 1943, the volcano was 335m. In 1946, it erupted and
buried everything on the way laver came across.
In 1952, the volcano stopped erupting. At that time it height was 424 m. In the end
of 1951, the eruptions burned everything around it 25m. Since 1952 to today there’re no
eruption of Paricutin volcano. It means that this volcano can’t erupt again. Paricutin is a
volcano in Trans Mexican Volcanic Belt and North America. It’s so luckily that there was
no death caused by the eruption of the volcano. Arcording to summery, there were three
people died but because of lighting not lava or ash of Paricutin volcano it is an unique
volcano because of that reason. Beside the youngest volcano, it’s also the fastest volcano.
The development and eruption of Paricutin only passed in a short time: 41 years. It began
erupting very past and also stopped erupting very past.
So it’s very unique!
However, it’s very extremely
unique because Paricutin volcano
still exists on our planet and it
brings much usefulness for people
living nearby. It brings rich sold for
agriculture to the village near it:
Parangaricutiro. Fact, Paricutin is

Vietnam is also located on tropical zone like Paricutin volcano area. So in Vietnam
there are many beautiful sites and wonderful places. It’s so unfortunaly. In Vietnam there

Quang Ninh, Phong Nha – Ke Bang in Quang Binh.
Ha Long bay and Phong Nha – Ke Bang are as beautiful and glamorous as Paricutin
volcano. Ha Long bay is a beautiful place with the system of islands and caves. Most
islands on Ha Long bay are limestone and were performed 5000 millions years. In Ha Long
bay, there are hundreds glamous names :Thien Cung ,Dau Go ,Sung Sot,Tam Cung…With

potential is as beautiful as Paricutin Vocano_an unique vocano in our world.
World wonder Assigment is a good idea of faculty of tourism in Ha Noi open
university. It is realy necessary for who learn tourism. This assignment help students gain
more knowleage in tourism not only in Viet Nam but also in the world.This assignment
also help students improve their vocbualy in tourism. It’s so useful for students’ career in
the future. Doing this assignment improves students’skill at collecting information and

How to share work equally, how to support each other. This assignment is a good way for

As a student in faculty of tourism, I think this assignment is very interesting and useful.

world. After finishing this asigment, I know more about are world and I have opportunity
to work is pairs. It’s realy useful for my career in the future. They’re all the advantages.
Beside advantages, this assignment give us some difficulties. The first difficulty is working
impairs because it’s very waste of time for us to meet each other. The second difficuty is
finding the information because infor mation on Internet is so various and it’s very difficult
to choose information exactly. So surely that my assignment has some mistakes. In general,
World wonder Assigment brings us more advantages than difficulties.
Making an effective assignment is very difficult. My partner and I have some
suggestions to have an effective assignment:
We want some help from teachers.
We want our class has some days to share ideas with all members in class. After that,
we have some experience to make assignment.
We are new students so we want to choose partner ourselves, that makes our
assignment more effective. So I think teacher should let us choose partner, instead of
helping us choose partner. It is not realy good for us.
The World wonder assignment have to be typed. Some students have to hire house in
Ha Noi and the standard of living is difficult. They do not have a computer or their
computer do not link internet. This is a difficulty for some students to finish this
In general, the World wonder assignment brings many advantages for students studying
tourism. And of course, if students know the way to improve difficulties, they will be
successful in the world wonder assignment.
