How well is your Vietnamese?
« on: July 08, 2017, 09:03:42 AM »
Is your Vietnamese good enough to understand what these people are talking about and participate in the conversation?

I can't follow what the subject is about.  If I was there I would sit still and be confused as heck.  Maybe they are speaking too fast and fluid.

Worse than a 6 month old baby
I only now pho and banh mi
And xin chao

But even then I don't know the correct tones

too fast, too slurred. I catch a word here and there. If we speak like that in my family the mean old people would say it's not lady-like.

Incredible display of Vietnamese language mastery.  I feel the one who was most sophisticated was the one in the blue checkered shirt, fiercely debating subject matters suitable for a college curriculum (if not at least they are talking about something worthwhile but I wouldn't know because I don't understand the Vietnamese language, at least not yet).

Oh yes btw her not lady likeness was contributing to her sophistication.  She is a lady yes but she was debating with a male and held her ground.
