Learning a new language is uneasy and it definitely takes time but it is also definitely possible. I have had opportunities to work with a lot of students who have different learning purposes and all of them have put a lot of work and I believe their Vietnamese families and friends do appreciate their efforts and being able to communicate in Vietnamese is helping them get closer to each other. I am here to work with you on that journey. Thank you for being interested in our language, our country, our people and our culture :)

I have instructed Vietnamese language and culture to Americans for 6 years after my arriving in The United States in 2008. I always consider teaching foreign languages is not only a career but an art of inspiration. My expertise is how to conduct and train students to pronounce, speak, read, write and understand Vietnamese language and culture accurately. All of my students reached their goals after 26, 32 or 44 weeks of learning Vietnamese. I received good feedback form them too.

Teaching is my passion, I love seeing my students progress! Originally born and raised in Vietnam, I traveled to America on a student Visa and have now been living here for 4 years. My students say that I am patient, enthusiastic, and kind. But I am not afraid to push them forward when things get challenging. In my free time I enjoy cooking, watching Vietnamese game shows, and doing yoga.

I cannot rate Mrs. Huyenny highly enough! - she has made learning 'VIETNAMESE" fun! It is a totally different experience from learning Vietnamese on some Purchased downloaded program - Huyen uses a variety of different tools and methods in her tutoring, ones that help memorise verbs, grammar and vocabulary, and have given me some really useful hints and tips, so that learning "VIETNAMESE" is easy and fun.I now feel more confident in speaking to natives. Highly recommended.

He brought in materials to supplement the textbooks that helped me to expand my vocabulary and better understand Vietnamese culture. He is enthusiastic and has a sense of humor, so class is always challenging, but also fun."

"Mr Nguyen's course teaching introductory Tieng Viet to non native speakers is a very good course which demands close attention from students, but is a well built and practiced class to show people how to learn the language. It is far more useful than any RosettaStone course or online class, as Thay Giao Chau takes very good care to show how the language is structured, and with practice how you recognize the patterns in speech. Are you asking a question? Are you asking a 'leading question'? Do you want to know what a person is doing? All of these points are discussed. Even when I was not feeling as healthy as I could have been, Mr Nguyen's class is structured to be very participatory - don't think you will show up and not have to answer questions - and it is for this reason I believe the retention of the material is improved. I would commend anyone who is a non native Vietnamese speaker to work with him to learn how to learn the language. -Best, Anh Marc S."

"I’ve taken Vietnamese classes with Mr. Chau for 2 months now. As a person just beginning to learn Vietnamese, I’ve seen vast improvement in my ability to speak and write in Vietnamese with Mr. Chau. Since Vietnamese is a tonal language, I’ve struggled at times with pronounciations of Vietnamese words. Mr. Chau’s methods work and my pronounciations have greatly improved. Highly recommended."

Vietnamese Language Classes

The official language of Vietnam, Vietnamese belongs to the Austro-Asiatic language family and originated in the northern part of Vietnam. Today, about 76 million people speak Vietnamese as their native or primary language. With a population of 92 million, even more people speak Vietnamese as a second language. It’s no wonder why so many people around the globe are saying, “Teach me Vietnamese!”

You can find Vietnamese speakers practically everywhere you go. Pockets of Vietnamese communities can be found throughout Southeast Asia, Australia, the Czech Republic, and the United States. In fact, Vietnamese is the third-most commonly spoken language in states, including Texas, Washington, Oklahoma, and Nebraska.

Many people learn Vietnamese to improve their travel opportunitie

...

s, to connect with families and friends, or to become more closely acquainted with the Vietnamese culture. Whether you were introduced to Vietnamese through family, friends, or food, there are countless reasons to take Vietnamese language classes.

Why Take Vietnamese Lessons?

If you’ve heard some Vietnamese spoken before, you may wonder whether it’s even possible for you to speak the language. With several strange vowel sounds and six different tones of pronunciation, Vietnamese can be challenging for the English ear and tongue. The Foreign Service Institute (FSI) rates Vietnamese as a Category III language, which means it's considered to be a hard language for native English speakers to learn.

Due to its significant linguistic and cultural differences from English, Vietnamese requires 44 weeks of study or 1,100 class hours, on average, for a student to learn. How long it will take you to learn the language depends on the intensity of your Vietnamese lessons and if you have any prior experience.

Although the FSI considers Vietnamese to be a challenging language, there are many reasons why it's easier to learn than other East Asian languages. Until about a century ago, Vietnamese was solely written in a logographic script called chữ Nôm. Today, the modern Vietnamese writing system uses the same characters as English (the Latin alphabet).

This modern writing system, quốc ngữ, makes Vietnamese way simpler for an English speaker to learn — especially with regard to reading and writing. Also, Vietnamese has no noun genders, no complex verb forms, simple tenses, and is highly logical. As a result, its different pronunciation is just about the only truly difficult part of learning Vietnamese. The good news is that online Vietnamese language classes make it easy to practice proper pronunciation.

The Best Way to Learn Vietnamese

Sure, a quick online search reveals pages of websites offering free Vietnamese lesson videos. Although this might seem fast and easy, it's not the best way to learn a foreign language — especially one as challenging as Vietnamese. We recommend studying with a private Vietnamese teacher who will offer you immediate feedback and help you overcome individual challenges quickly.

When learning Vietnamese with a private tutor, you'll also enjoy lessons that have been customized to your personal interests and preferred learning style. Remember that no two private lessons are alike. Don't let the Category III rating discourage you! With a private Vietnamese tutor, you'll learn more quickly and have fun at the same time.

You can combine the effectiveness of private Vietnamese lessons with the convenience of online videos when you work with a language teacher online. Using your webcam or smartphone, you can stay connected with your Vietnamese teacher, even if they’re in Hanoi and you’re in New York. This is a great option for those who may not have a teacher in their neighborhood!

Vietnamese Language for Beginners

If you have little or no previous experience with the language, Vietnamese beginner lessons are for you. In beginner classes, you'll learn all the basic skills and rules you need to get a strong start learning Vietnamese. Your teacher will help you stay motivated while to master the fundamentals. You can expect to see the following topics:

  • Alphabet and pronunciation
  • Unfamiliar vowel sounds
  • Introduction to tones
  • Survival phrases and essential vocabulary

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Vietnamese Language Classes

Intermediate lessons are designed to build upon a student's basic knowledge of Vietnamese. In intermediate lessons, you'll expand your vocabulary and develop a greater command of the language. At this stage, you can begin to appreciate more Vietnamese works of art as well. Your Vietnamese tutor might cover some of the following topics:

  • Sharpen listening comprehension
  • Forming verb tenses
  • Practicing vowels, consonants, and tones
  • Syntax

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Vietnamese Lessons

Advanced lessons are intended for students with a strong command of Vietnamese. Advanced students should already be comfortable speaking, hearing, reading, and writing Vietnamese. In advanced lessons, you'll approach fluency and begin speaking more like a native Vietnamese speaker. Course content and subject matter in advanced Vietnamese classes are highly dependent on the student's individual goals and interests, but your instructor might choose to cover some of the following topics:

  • Accent reduction
  • Discerning between and understanding dialects
  • Nuance and inference
  • Colloquialisms, customs, and culture

How to Find a Vietnamese Teacher

If you're ready to get a taste for the vowel sounds and tonal inflections of the Vietnamese language, then you'll need to find a tutor. A quick search on TakeLessons will direct you to a variety of highly experienced and qualified teachers who offer private Vietnamese lessons both online and in person.
