"I am human."
Translation:Tôi là một con người.
This entire section is useless to me if there are no verbal translation to accompany the written translation. Can the native speakers contribute in this way? My main objective is to converse with the Vietnamese people around me, not read Vietnamese.
Use forvo, as they are working to add new sounds, but the amount of sounds they can add is limited.
They have some sounds now, but if you have Vietnamese people all around you, you can ask them to read the sentences for you. If you do this enough eventually you won't need their help to read it anymore.
How am I supposed to write with Vietnamese characters? It keeps saying I have typos in my answer.
Thank you for the link. Using the android Vietnamese keyboard, I'm able to hold-press a key to get many accents, but some still aren't there. Eg. I can do ơ and ò but not them both together to get ớ (I cut and paste that in). Any advice?
Check if your phone keyboard supports VNI or Telex input method. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/15390991 .If you type "aw" and you see "ă" then you are using Telex method. If you type "a8" and you get "ă" then you are using VNI method.
I've just checked the default Android VN keyboard on one of my phones and I could see all characters I want. For example: I hold-pressed the letter O and I could see O, Ó, Ò, Ỏ, Õ, Ọ, Ô, Ố, Ồ, Ổ, Ỗ, Ộ, Ơ, Ớ, Ờ, Ở, Ỡ, Ợ. When you hold-press a key and you can't seem to find the characters you want then your keyboard doesn't support the full set of Vietnamese characters. You can download 3rd party keyboards from Play Store. I recommend La Ban Key since you can type with both Telex and VNI methods. Or you can go with Google Keyboard (it seems to support Telex only???).
try this keyboard. It has all of the Vietnamese characters. http://usefulwebtool.com/en/vietnamese-keyboard.php
It would be great if we could hear the sentences pronounced (I think they are already recorded anyway)
It would be nice if duolingo could add the special characters below the typing box, like they do in Spanish, German, French, etc. I understand that would end up being a lot of extra characters but it would help me a great deal.
I wrote the exact sentence here with the accents right and still got 'almost right'. I think it has something to do with how my Windows language setup works because the accent over à looks different to the one over ờ - it's higher up, see?
I am American and I do not have these accent marks on my keyboard so everytime I type something correct, just no accent marks. I get marked wrong or "Woot! Almost Correct!". Anyone know a way where I can get these accent marks thank you.
How was I supposed to know that, I can't understand anything! There is no way for me to know that, I have no reminder on it, I literally JUST WROTE THE WORDS DOWN! I don't even know how to say it either because it does not say the word. Also, I don't have the 'type of computer' for the Vietnamese language. Please work harder on your lessons next time.
I don't get why there is no sound when you click the sound button to hear what it sounds like
I typed the correct answer using the program on my iPhone, and indicated my answer was incorrect. I even tried using the Vietnamese keyboard so that I had the correct accent marks and it still said my answer was incorrect. I typed the same answer on my desktop computer and it said my answer was correct, but I had typo errors. How do I resolve this? I would like to use the program on both my phone and desktop. Thank you for your help.

Same for other vowels that have accent. Use s f r j x to get the accents.
