Vietnamese is spoken by about 80 million people across the globe and is the national language of Vietnam. Welcome to a world where the colors are more vivid, where the landscapes are bolder, the coastline more dramatic, where the history is more compelling, where the tastes are more divine, where life is lived in the fast lane. This world is Vietnam, the latest Asian dragon to awake from its slumber. Nature has blessed Vietnam with a bountiful harvest of soaring mountains, a gorgeous coastline and radiant rice fields. Inland, peasant women in conical hats still tend to their fields, children ride buffalos along country paths and minority people scratch out a living from impossible gradients.
Outside of Vietnam, there is a large Vietnamese diaspora in the USA, Cambodia and China.
Here are some of the basic Vietnamese phrases that you might use:
