About This Class

Once beginning to study, Vietnamese Language Learners (VLL) quickly discover that there are two dialects of Vietnamese: Northern and Southern.

While most language teachers will tell you that the Northern dialect is "correct" or "standard" and that the Southern dialect is "wrong", this would be news to the MAJORITY of Vietnamese speakers in Vietnam who mostly live in the South in major cities such as Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho, Nha Trang, Dong Nai, Da Nang and others.

The truth is, although Vietnamese people from all parts of the country understand each other, it makes sense for a VLLs to study in the dialect that they will be using in the place in which they live. 

Unfortunately, almost ALL Vietnamese language textbooks and materials use the Northern so-called "standard" Vietnamese, which makes it very difficult for someone living in Ho Chi Minh City (AKA Saigon) to learn the language to fluency.

In this course, YOU WILL LEARN:

1. VIETNAMESE SLANG

2. VIETNAMESE COLLOQUIAL SPEECH WITH A SOUTHERN ACCENT

3. COMMON PHRASES USED EVERY DAY

4. NATURAL SPEECH FOR IMMEDIATE USE

5. HOW TO UNDERSTAND SOUTHERN VIETNAMESE

6. HOW TO PERFECT YOUR PRONUNCIATION

7. HOW TO SMOOTHLY AND CORRECTLY SAY THE TONES

8. HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR VIETNAMESE LANGUAGE SKILLS QUICKLY

I have been studying the Vietnamese Language for over 10 years and have helped hundreds of expats become fluent because I had to learn from scratch while living in Saigon and understand the difficulties of learning Vietnamese, especially with a SOUTHERN ACCENT.

I also have a Teaching Certificate, Master's Degree of Education, and many years of professional language teaching experience.

If you are serious about learning Vietnamese and are either planning a trip to the southern part of Vietnam or even planning to move here permanently:

THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU.
