Would be nice to put the construction into the dic. It just says hoac la or hoac...hoac. Here you use a mixture of both: hoac la...hoac. How can one know?

It has been said one can learn by making mistakes. Sometimes it seems through lack of Tips and Notes and unreliability of hints, we are forced to make mistakes. I make enough mistakes on my own without encouragement...I know Huy_Ngo as contributor is working through this program to correct some of the mistakes but he needs help for further revamping this course. I hadn't realized just how thin things were here until I started Spanish and Chinese. What a difference, they are so robust. Vietnamese needs a lot more Tips and Notes. At first, things seem simple, words don't change, but the language is like an artichoke- you keep peeling off layers to discover something new.
