not really, just your assumptions.  Any extant Vietnamese texts in classical Chinese and Nom have pretty much been translated to Quoc Ngu.  Even if we used one single writing system, as is the case with Shakespearean English, 85% of what was written then make little sense now to modern American or British students.  Cultural continuity here isn´t about preserving a writing system but the physicality of the documents themselves.  Much of the artifacts concerning Vietnamese cultural history is still buried underground to be discovered by future generations.  The question is whether those future Vietnamese care enough to preserve it for their own children.  In China right now, heritage sites are continually looted, and fakes are hand made to replace museum pieces.  Vietnam is still a very uncivilized place for major discoveries. 

Well, you’re pretty much cut off from traditional Vietnamese culture anyhow.

I’m just discovering how rich the old culture is and how many aspects of ancient traditions are very much alive today. Hence this thread about communal houses.
