- First 6 six months it is very easy because they don't have conjunction verb form in any form of time. There are no feminine or masculine.
- But there are so many slangs and idiomatic in Vietnamese's language. THAT HAS BEEN TERRIBLY FOR FOREIGN LEARNER.
- When you right there you easily to speak with farmer but higher class people have to learn more ten years
Vietnamese is one of the easier asian languages to learn. Primarily due to the use of the familiar latin alphabet, most words are pheonetic and its grammar structure follows similarly to standard English. Tones and diatrics might be difficult at first but once you memorised it, it's much easier compared to what you have to remember in other asian languages.
I agree. At least you have an alphabet. If to compare with chinese, Japanese or Korean, it is much easier, at least with some aspects. Imagine that you don't know the word and you need to translate it right now. With Chinese language it is always a big headache - because there's no link between the writing and pronunciation. Unfamiliar symbols even the native speakers can't read themselves.
What's your native language? Because the grammar itself is easy, the alphabet is definitely much easier than other Asian languages, but the phonetics are quite hard for non-tonal natives, and the number of vowels is also confusing a bit. But if you get past phonetics, then well it's not THAT hard indeed
Vietnamese seems to have a steeper learning curve (I mean by it that the learning process is faster, the initial threshold you have to surpass in order to start to rapidly acquire vocab and grammar is significantly lower) when compared to Chinese, Japanese and Korean (I learned them in this order) and especially Thai. I really think that Thai has the most mind blowing writing system of them all with all these rules! Too bad there is still no Thai on Duolingo. Really struggling with it even after all these years in language learning, so I switched heavily to Vietnamese lately and never regretted it.
