"My card is red."

Translation:Cái thiệp của tôi có màu đỏ.

November 17, 2016



Would you ever say "Cái thiệp của tôi là màu đỏ"? Doesn't "có" mean to have vs. to be?


The notes from the earlier lesson on color said that "to have" is the only verb you use when describing something's color, not "to be" like in English.


Does thiệp use for anniversary card ? And thẻ is used e.g. ID card, bank card ?̉


Yes, thiệp is a card you gift while thẻ is for personal ID-related ones.

Thiệp cưới = Wedding invitation card

Thiệp kỷ niệm ngày cưới = (Wedding) anniversary card

Thẻ học sinh = Student ID card

Thẻ tín dụng = Credit card


Cái thiệp của tôi thì màu đỏ.
