Description

Recent Testimonials:

"I am a 28 year old Vietnamese born in America, with parents from Southern Vietnam region. I've lived my life with an OK ability to converse and a good amount of vocab, but I never learned it properly. Unfortunately, there's very few resources for learning English-> Viet Southern Dialect, since the Northern/Hanoi dialect is the official preference and more relevant for business. Since there were very few resources for improving Southern dialect, I mostly gave up on developing my own Vietnamese. So I was very happy to see a course specifically aimed for Southern dialect on Udemy! After completing this course, I am really pleased with the quality of the lessons. Greg is comprehensive, thorough and attuned to the tonal nuances of the language. So if you're like me, a Viet Kieu with a desire to improve, this is an excellent course and I highly recommend it." - Kim T

"Although I have not completed the course yet, I have already benefited greatly from Greg's insight of the Vietnamese language." - Gerald Morton

"I've taken lessons from several Vietnamese teachers and this one is my favorite by far!" - Tiffany Bennet

"Love the building-blocks approach." - Tony Luvonne


This course is for anyone who wants to become fluent in the Vietnamese language or simply learn some conversational phrases and vocabulary before making a trip to Vietnam. It's also for anyone seeking to simply communicate with your Vietnamese friends or neighbors.

It is designed to teach you Vietnamese in the shortest possible time frame by using the same strategies that I used when I first learned the language while living in Vietnam. I'll teach you tricks and tips along the way that allow you to understand popular phrases and slang, as well as how to properly pronounce the difficult tones and accents of Vietnamese.

I have structured the course into short, instructional videos that allow you to focus on one subject at a time without getting overloaded with too much information. I have adapted some of the grammar and sentence structures from the very popular language textbooks used at the University of Sociology and Language Arts in Ho Chi Minh City which are the core building blocks of the language.

Everything in the course is useful in everyday situations so you will never be spending time studying something that is not totally applicable in the real world right away. Most language courses have a lot of this kind of superfluous material which is quite inefficient and waste a lot of time covering unnecessary vocabulary and grammar rules. Our course is designed for efficiency AND proficiency.

Who this course is for:
  • Students that have some background in Vietnamese or have studied the language at least a little before starting the course
  • Students who have already completed the Udemy course Learn to Speak Vietnamese Like a Native
