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.

So harsh on the ears.  This just shows that it does not matter what language you speak common etiquette like using correct grammar and speaking slowly can make a big difference.
