This is a complete language course designed for college or high school–level classroom use or self–study.
This Vietnamese textbook was developed for the author's classes at Harvard University. Using examples from contemporary popular media, it serves also as a general introduction to modern Vietnamese society and culture and is invaluable for anyone planning to travel, study or work in Vietnam. The best–selling book has now been newly revised and expanded to include Lesson Fifteen, a grammar and usage index, and Vietnamese traditional cartoons in each of the fifteen lessons.
The text consists of two parts. The first part called Pronunciation Guide introduces the phonetic system of the Vietnamese language based on the Hanoi dialect and the spelling rules. The Guide includes the descriptions of the Vietnamese sounds, the comparisons of the phonological similarities, and differences between some Vietnamese and English sounds. Several basic differences between the Hanoi and Saigon dialects are also explained. The second part is comprised of fourteen lessons:
