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 :)

About Trang V.

Chào mọi người (hi everyone)

My name is Trang. I build up lessons based on what you would like to learn instead of what I would like to teach so that we could help you reach your goals as soon as possible. I am from the North so my accent will be Northern. However I had lived in Ho Chi Minh City (in the South) so I can still help you with the dialect and 80% of the accent if you would like Southern accent.

Learning a language is a big journey so let's make that journey fun. I know I should write more about my experiences to gain your trust but I guess all will mean nothing if you try and find out I am not so good as I said. Therefore, please drop me messages if you have any questions and let's make it work.

I hope we will have a chance to work together when you read this message. Cám ơn mọi người (thanks, everyone) :)

Trang's lessons are fun and interactive. Also they are well paced and designed well for my situation (non-speaker living in a house with native Vietnamese speakers of all ages for practice opportunity). I find the homework fun to practice throughout the week, especially with my in-laws who enjoy some of the mispronunciations I have but are engaged to help me. Follow-up lessons build on previous weeks in logical ways. Overall, I find Trang's teaching style to be very fun and motivating.

In my short time working with her, she made sure to use the time we had available to us optimally, and was patient with me as I worked through my pronunciation. Her enthusiasm for the language and teaching is infectious :)

She’s really calm with her students... make one feel comfortable and enjoy the lesson... she examines what you need to work on and helps you achieve you goal.. I took Viet 2 years ago but didn’t learn the basic every day words. So for me I wasn’t confident in speaking and understanding.. but she help me speak and compose sentences for sail life use.. totally recommend her.. she the best... I’ll will explain like a big sister

I've been taking lessons with Trang for over a year now. I've really learned a lot and my VNese in-laws are finally beginning to understand me. Trang keeps lessons interesting and has an uncanny ability to sense areas where I'm struggling even before I do, and she will modify her teaching approach on the fly to target those areas. Likewise, when I start to get pretty comfortable with something, she will switch up her teaching approach. The best analogy I can think of is if you were rolling out a pizza dough to form a crust. If you keep rolling in one direction you'll end up with an oblong crust. You have to constantly monitor how the crust is forming and know when to change and work on expanding in a different direction in order to make a well rounded crust. Yeah. She's that good :)

Trang is a great teacher. Before taking lessons I only knew a few words in Vietnamese but Trang has been very patient in teaching. Rather than just providing a bunch of vocabulary Trang has actually helped with how the language works. My specific interest was in the Northern dialect which is important to note as the Northern and Southern dialects are distinct.

Trang has been incredible. My vietnamese was basically limited to food :-) but after one month of classes I started to understand pieces of conversations between my partner and in-laws. She has a really good pace, breaking down words and sounds that are new to me, keeping a very practical approach. I walked out first class being able to say a handful amount of words, surprising my viet friends! I strongly recommend Trang to anyone with little to none
vietnamese experience; and she will make sure it's time well invested.

Trang is very knowledgeable in the correct way to teach her native language. She is very patient, but will correct you right away rather than give empty compliments about how your progress is going. I appreciate her personable nature because it creates an environment of a teaching friendship rather than simply a student to teacher relationship. I am excited for the next lesson. I will be a student of Trang's until I am fluent.

Updated review: I have been learning from Trang for 3 months. In this time, my speaking and writing has progressed rapidly and my understanding has expanded robustly. I always considered myself "bad at learning languages", but learning with Trang has changed that perception of myself.

The purpose of me learning Vietnamese has been to communicate with my Vietnamese girlfriend in her own language. I am confident that I can speak with them with Trang's help. I came from literally 0 experience to now texting short conversations with my girlfriend in 100% Vietnamese.

I recommend Trang 10/10 times for Vietnamese learners of all levels.

I'm a native speaker of Vietnamese but born in the U.S. so my Vietnamese skills are pretty lacking. Chi Trang is super accommodating to my skillset and even adapted to speaking a more Southern (Nam) accent (which I really appreciate). I highly recommend her to any of my Vietnamese-heritage speakers out there! I know we all really want to be more fluent speaking to our family and friends back in Vietnam.

I traveled with friends to Hanoi last year and we really liked Vietnam, especially the locals, so we came back this year. My 3 friends have been studying Vietnamese with Trang since last year and when we were in Vietnam again in June this year. I could not believe that they could talk to the locals. They could even read the menu and everything else. I felt totally left out when they were speaking, laughing, and having so much fun. So now I am here. I want to have fun with the locals like that and I have been studying with Trang three times a week and it is so fun speaking Vietnamese with my friends now. Trang is a great teacher! I think the reviews say it all but I do want to say, "do not hesitate to study with Trang if you really want to speak Vietnamese!"

Trang is a very kind, patient and fun teacher. She is one of the best teachers I've ever met. I really love the way she teaches me. She's never give me a lot of new words at a time which is really good (I like that). During our lesson, we focus on practicing the new words and make it into the sentences. So I can really master these words without seeing the notes. I feel really grateful to take these classes. I really enjoy it. The classes are worth it. I look forward to meeting her next time.

Trang has been very helpful and accommodating for me. She has accommodated me by helping me learn the southern dialect when she is more comfortable with the northern dialect, and by providing audio for each week’s vocabulary so I can listen between lessons. She has a good understanding of how the letters and words are formed and can easily correct and explain the differences in words which would sound similar to the untrained ear. Because of this understanding, I feel that my pronunciation has progressed more quickly than it otherwise would have. She also teaches the words in an order that feels natural. By the 5th lesson (if not the 4th) I was able to put together simple sentences for simple conversations. She seems to be very attuned to her students’ learning speed. I have never felt overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the amount taught in a lesson; somehow, she always manages to challenge me in the best way. She is very kind and not easily frustrated with frequent questions, and she is easy to talk to. I have really enjoyed working with her.

Knowing something and being able to effectively explain and teach something do not necessarily go hand-in-hand. Trying to learn Vietnamese from my Vietnamese girlfriend was leaving us both a little frustrated.

However, with Trang, I feel like I've already learned so much in such a short amount of time. Besides being very patient and supportive and funny, her lessons are very effective and efficient. She has a natural and relaxed teaching style that feels more like talking with a friend than being taught by a tutor, and for me that seems to take away some of the pressure of trying something and being "wrong".

Before I started taking lessons, I had doubts about whether I was personally capable of ever being able to communicate in Vietnamese and be understood. But after only a few lessons, I am so encouraged and happy with my progress that I will definitely be continuing lessons with Trang for the foreseeable future!

This is the first time we have tried online classes to have our little sister learn beginners Vietnamese and it was the best decision we could have made! English is her first language and she had no background knowledge in Vietnamese whatsoever, so it was difficult for her to transition along with how to pronunciate certain words. Trang is incredibly patient and she really makes you feel comfortable when learning. She puts in the extra effort to make sure that you feel confident with the subject and gives extra exercises to practice on your own. Our sister always looks forward to her classes and I would highly recommend anyone to give her class a try no matter the age because she is just so sweet and knowledgeable!

Trang is a great teacher! I have been studying with her for eight months (2 lessons a week) and have learned so much! She takes time to make sure that my pronunciation and grammar are excellent.

An excellent teacher who caters her lessons to your needs. I've had so much fun over these past few lessons and I don't intend to stop any time soon. If you want to learn Viet from a native, look no further.

The stars only go to five but she is a ten star instructor.. She is very patient and ensures that you properly pronounce the words correctly and takes the time and is interested in her students. I will be back after my trip to Vietnam to continue my lessons with her.

Trang made the lesson fun while also achieving a preat lesson plan. I look forward to more classes!!!

If you're reading this review to decide if you want to learn Vietnamese with Trang, stop reading reviews and sign up for her lessons already! You won't regret it.
I came into these lessons after finishing the Pimsleur Vietnamese audio course, so I was afraid it would be difficult for a teacher to assess my knowledge and avoid making the lessons too easy or too difficult. However, Trang was able to assess my knowledge of the Vietnamese language quickly and from lesson one I have been challenged yet able to keep up.
Trang's lessons are well structured, yet not rigid.
Teaching seems to come very naturally for her, and I would recommend her to anybody who wants to learn Vietnamese!

Trang is very patient and understanding in the differences in the way Americans speak vice the way VIetnamese speak and she takes the time to ensure you pronounce each word correctly and place it in it's proper place in the sentences so the people will understand what you are saying.

I'm really happy I chose Trang to start studying Vietnamese. We've had about 8? lessons together so far. She's a really fun teacher and knows how to set a good pace so that I'm learning a lot but I never feel overwhelmed. I'll definitely be continuing with her!

Trang is such a wonderful instructor. I am so excited to see her every week for our lessons. Sometimes I forget to do the homework but she doesn't scold me, she just helps me catch up, and we do as much as possible. At one point I was feeling like I wasn't getting it, but she flash quizzed me on the spot tons of words, and she was right, I knew them. I was just losing my confidence. We've since slowed down a little bit and I have been getting noticeably better every week. I am now able to speak with my Girl friends Noi (Grandma) via text and speak with her Me va Ba (Mom and Dad) verbally. I hope she never leaves takelessons because I would be lost without her :) Thanks Trang!

She is an outstanding instructor. She takes the time to ensure the student pronounces the words and sentences correctly and that they also understand how to read, write and listen to the person speaking.

I originally purchased 10 lessons with Trang, but I will definitely extend my lessons with her. Trang is a very knowledgeable, professional, and fun teacher. She always comes prepared for our lesson and follows up with detailed and thoughtful notes. Learning Vietnamese with her is an absolutely pleasure.

Very happy I chose Trang as my Vietnamese instructor. She makes learning to speak and write Vietnamese very easy and comfortable. I have now taken my third lesson with her and she breaks down words, phrases, and pronunciations well enough for me to understand clearly. She goes at your needed speed while also pushing you to learn more. I appreciate her dedication to helping me learn Vietnamese better!

Trang is an amazing instructor. She is very enthusiastic and helpful. I want to study Vietnamese to better communicate with my in-laws. Studying before always felt overwhelming, and made me think about giving up. However, Trang has made learning Vietnamese fun and interesting, which has made learning easier. I definitely recommend Trang to teach you Vietnamese!

Trang has been a wonderful instructor. She is positive, funny, and keeps me focused on my studies. Trang has created a lesson plan that fits my schedule, and more importantly, is paced at a rate I am able to retain the information. In just a few lessons with Trang, I have learned more, than the 5 years of attempting to learn Vietnamese on my own. I look forward to continuing my lessons with Trang, and strongly recommend her to anyone seeking to learn the Vietnamese language.

This is my first Vietnamese class so I was very worried about it. but Teacher Trang is really good at teaching with good examples and details about pronounsation therefore I can understand easily. Even after finishing her lesson she send email more explanation or audio record about the part that I was weak about in the lesson. I’m taking two classes a week with her and she is the best instructor.

I am trying to learn Vietnamese because my husband is Vietnamese and speaks Vietnamese with his family. I already knew a little bit but Trang has been helping me increase my vocabulary and learn useful phrases pertaining to my life. The pace of the lesson is not too fast and not too slow. She also does a great job of checking comprehensions with reviews within the lesson. Learning a new language is an active experience and she defitely makes it where your brain has to be active during the lesson! She also has very very gentle and kind personality which makes me feel unafraid to make mistakes! She creates a wonderful learning environment. I have already had 2 lesson with her and I have signed up for 13 more. I’m sure I’ll sign up for even more when those have finished! I look forward to speaking with my in-laws as well as traveling to Vietnam and speaking with the locals:)
