The pronunciation of dơi here is done with the northern accent. With a "Z" sound at the beginning.
With [j], like in English „yes“: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Vietnamese/Consonants

It's much like the situation with the Chinese in the United States decades ago. The Cantonese-speakers immigrated first, and so traditional Chinese characters and Cantonese became well-established. The Mandarin speakers with their simplified Chinese came much later. Cantonese speakers are a relative minority in mainland China but have greater representation versus Mandarin speakers in the United States.
would be better if it's pronounced with the Southern accent, since it's closer to the correct pronunciation
Pretty sure it's the animal. The classifier "con" means the proceeding word is an animal, I believe.
I don't think it would because it doesn't contain the word "mot" for "a". I think if it doesn't have the word "mot" it's best to assume it's "the".
"a bat" refers to quantity. however, the classifier would take the place of "the" in this situation.
mine also said "child" and "classifier" so being a total beginner, I thought it meant child or baby bat.
