"Yes, my mother is still fine."
Translation:Vâng, mẹ của tôi vẫn ổn.
Có should be accepted as it is used for yes in the saigon dialect which is technically spoken by more people anyways even though its not "official" i wish duolingo had the option to choose dialects for languages im speaking vietnamese in a heavily viet area of california and people dont particularly like the northern accent very much
When I was a kid, I was taught to put the accent on the "o". Apparently, it's now standard to put it on the "e". I put it on the "o" out of habit. There are lengthy discussions about accent placement elsewhere in Duolingo, but I don't remember where you can find it, sorry. I'm sure you'll stumble upon them if you check every comments section in the lessons. I hope this helps!
Hi Sylvia, thank you, I appreciate that you still look over these questions. :) I've already seen several of the discussions. I'm learning vietnamese in a club as well. We have very good native speakers which probably could help me out. It's just that I couldn't go there recently, so it will take a while before I can ask them. But still, I can give you an update as soon as I got the answer. Thank you again and keep on. ;p Kind regards, Michael.
