  • Some basic Vietnamese

Vietnamese for Business is my answer to a large number of requests from my current Vietnamese language students to focus on language that can be used in a professional setting.

In Vietnamese for Business you will learn:

1. How to generally talk about business matters in Vietnamese

2. How to professionally greet and meet with coworkers and clients

3. How to discuss finance, the stock market, and investing

4. How to converse about management and human resources

5. How to talk about sales and marketing

6. How to discuss general business matters

7. Much more Vietnamese language practice

This course is for anyone studying the Vietnamese language who has already learned the tones and alphabet and is ready for more advanced vocabulary and language.

While it is specifically designed for those working in a professional environment it is also a great supplement for general Vietnamese language learners as the vocabulary, pronunciation, and style are all natural and colloquial. In other words, this is the way that local Vietnamese people use the language every day. 

It took me ten years to attain the level of fluency that I currently enjoy in the language. I have recently moved back to Vietnam, where I teach Vietnamese to foreigners, Business, and other subjects full time. 

If you're serious about learning the Vietnamese language, I encourage you to join the course and take your next step toward total fluency!

Who is the target audience?
  • People with a basic understanding of Vietnamese who are or intend to communicate in the work related setting with Vietnamese people

My courses are designed based on my many years as a teacher and student of education and business. I hold a master's degree in curriculum and instruction and have been designing curricula for over a decade.

The business, language, and chess courses that I have built on Udemy are a reflection of this experience and dedication to education. My goal is to reach as many people as possible with my courses, which is why I have chosen the internet and the Udemy platform as my ideal mode of delivery.

The following is a little more about my expertise and background. I was born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho. I attended the University of Idaho where I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 2004. After a few years in the work force as an account manager I moved to Vietnam where I lived for over 5 years.

While in Vietnam I taught English as a second language for almost 2 years to students of all ages and backgrounds. For the 3 final years that I lived there I opened and ran a sports training company called Saigon Sports Academy. We coached sports such as soccer, chess, tennis, and basketball as well as ran large sporting events such as tournaments and leagues. My positions while at the company included Director of Strategic Initiatives as well as Director of the Chess Program.

While living in Vietnam I became fluent in the Vietnamese language and developed a deep love for teaching and traveling internationally. I then came back in the United States to work on a masters degree in education so that I would be an even more effective teacher in the future. It is my wish to be a positive force for education in the world, and to inspire my current and future students to be the best that they can be in whatever they do.
