thanks really nice to find on itunes - just about to go to vietnam.

if i could make a sauggestion though, id really appreciate a course with optional extras. with a theme uch as thankyou, but also other phrases. you can pack a fair bit into 5 minutes. as i can rewind and fast forward mi ipod, you could learn more if you were comfortable, but still making sure, as you did, through reptition, that you learnt the essential central phgrase.

anyway, just an idea
gam an - thankyou - is that how you’d spell it?

Cool find! Six months ago, I married a wonderful lady from Vietnam, and we are going to Nha Trang over Christmastime to visit her family. It’s my first time to Vietnam, so I’m excited about learning some phrases.

A polite suggestion: you could probably pack a little more in with a five-minute lesson. For example, using the new phrase in context my be fun.

Good luck!

Hey! I’m starting up, and want to concur with Will above - I’d like to see more put into the lessons… and what’s more the PDF guide has a LOT more stuff in it, but no guide on how to read Vietnamese! I’m not sure if Xin is pronounced “Sheen” or “Hin”, if there’s rising, high, falling intonation… an overview on how to read Vietnamese script would make these supplementary materials a lot more useful.

It would also help me when ordering from menu - if I can get the basic reading principles down, I can order Phô. :wink:

I could really use the phonetics on how to properly pronounce it. the podcast isn’t all that clear, so a rough phonetic translation and hints on the pitch (rising/falling) would be very helpful! I agree that you could put more in a lesson.

Thanks for including Vietnamese!

Congratulations! Great course(s)!

Question about “Thank you very much” in Vietnamese. Great Myan says something like “Cảm ơn [rach] nhiêu”, which I cannot find in the accompanying .pdf. What is the word she says right between ơn and nhiêu?

Thank you and keep up with the good work!

I have found these lessons very useful. I’m travelling to Vietnam from Western Australia in a few weeks for my first visit and am looking forward to being able to make an effort to communicate, even if only slightly, in Vietnamese. Thanks for the help!

Hi/hello = chào or Xin chào ( “Xin Chào” is more formal than just the word “Chào̶ ;)
Thank you = cám ơn
Thank you very much = Cám ơn rất nhiều

that’s how you write it

good luck with your Vietnamese :)

Please get rid of the inanely repetitive intro!
It’s a waste of lesson time (1 -1.5 minutes!!!! ) and its highly irritating!
The happy - clappy, overly upbeat tone of the lessons is also a bit irritating!
Ok for free lessons, and very welcome, thank you!
I will not be paying for the longer courses untill /unless those intros are removed.
PS I find the German intro disturbing and inappropriate.

The accent of the lady in this audio is southern. If you want to learn Vietnamese, you’d better start from learning speaking with the northern accent :) after that, learn any accent you want:
PS: I’m Vietnamese and i love listening to southern accent, because it’s lovely ;-)

Myan … where is your accent from? it seems to me that your pronunciation of some words does not correspond to any dialect I know - Hanoi … Siagon … For example the way you pronounce không … it is sounds like an American who does not know Vietnamese phonetics and is going by the way it is spelled .. you make a K sound … the same problem with words that begin with “R” … you pronunce like in English but in Hanoi it is like a “z” sound and in Siagon like a “y” sound … so it seems to me that you have a Viêt-Kiêu accent .. American Viêt-Kiêu (overseas Vietnamese.
