"Where does the origin of human start from?"

Translation:Nguồn gốc của con người bắt đầu từ đâu?

October 4, 2016



The sentence sounds awkward in English. Human should be humans or humanity, and consider removing "from."


Yeah the Vietnamese sentence itself sounds a little excessive too. Normally you would just combined nguồn gốc (origin/s) and bắt đầu (to begin/start) to form bắt nguồn (to originate).

Con người or Loài ngoài bắt nguồn từ đâu is much shorter and less awkward sounding and means "Where did humans originate (from)?"
