Vietnamese is very difficult

"Vietnamese is very difficult" is the catchphrase of most foreign students when they try to learn Vietnamese. Many have given up after weeks or even months of pursuing. On the other hand, many people have successfully conquered Vietnamese.

One trip to Vietnam, learn Vietnamese from the beginning

The way of saying hi in Vietnamese will often have many differences compared to other languages. In Vietnamese, we usually do not greet in general, we don’t use “good morning”, “good afternoon” or “good evening”. When greeting someone, we will have to consider much about the role of people and the situation.

  • When greeting older people

    Usually, when speaking to people older than themselves, Vietnamese people always have a way of greeting respectfully and politely. There must be a subject and the word "ạ" at the end of the sentence to show respect:

    (Em) chào anh/chị ạ! Cháu/Con chào ông/bà/cô/dì/chú/bác ạ!

  • When greeting younger people

    For those of you who are younger in age, according to Vietnamese customs, we will often receive greetings from younger people. There are still cases when the adults can still offer a greeting first to someone younger than themselves if they want to create sympathy or meet the children for the first time.

    Ông/bà/chú/bác/cô/dì chào cháu/con.

  • When greeting with peers (same age group)

    For friends of the same age group or even when you just met each other but don't know the name of the other person, the Vietnamese people have a friendly way to greet you. If intimate, the Vietnamese can also greet by calling each other's names. In particular, Vietnamese people also borrow “hello” from English to greet friends.

    Chào bạn/cậu

Vietnam has many special experiences for visitors to explore, from going by motorbikes to sightseeing around the city by xich lo (cyclo). In Vietnam, cyclo is considered as a street speciality, also an experience hard to find in any other country. With having quite cheap prices, visitors just negotiate with the driver a bit, request the destination is able to experience the feeling of being a genuine indigenous.
