I love learning vietnamese!
When I go to my local Vietnamese Pho restaurant, I can read the Viet words on the menu.
I'm Vietnamese. I'm glad that you love learning our language. With some people, learning Vietnamese is not very easy and dicide to give up. I hope you will going on learning Vietnamese. Good luck!!! Chúc bạn may mắn nhé!!!
I started learning it for a family trip to Vietnam - thought I could pick it up in a few months, after all, I already know Mandarin, how hard could it be?
It was pretty hard. By the time the trip rolled around, I could say little more than 'Cam on' and 'Xin loi', but I found I really love the language, so I persisted.
I love Vietnamese because a) Love Vietnam - been there three times now b) Improves my Chinese - Vietnamese is essentially Pinyin with way more tones c) It teaches me about the old, old Chinese culture, yet at the same time, Vietnamese is distinctly different.
It looks like I am going to turn my tree gold by next Tet, so then I need to figure out what I am gonna do to advance my Tieng Viet further...
