Do Vietnamese people speak English? How little or How much?  In fact, most Vietnamese people speak at least a little bit of English. Therefore, you can communicate in basic English in many cases. However,  learning to speak just a few words of Vietnamese you can significantly reduce misunderstandings and frustrations and enhance your experience. 

I will prepare you with some essential Vietnamese for your trip! I’ve compiled many key Vietnamese words and phrases for a variety of situations including: in the restaurant, hotel, ticket booth,... In Vietnamese language, tones are everything. Therefore, I will talk in Vietnamese the entire course with English subtitle so you can get a good exposure of the language.

Language Teacher

Hello, I'm Trang. I was born in Vietnam but moved to the USA since I was 18. I have more than five years teaching Vietnamese to non-native speakers. My student's age range from 10 years old to 60 years old with different background and capabilities. I designed my courses base on experience as a language teacher and perspective of a language learning students ( I'm currently trying to learn Japanese). I included all the techniques and culture notes that you cannot find anywhere else.
