VIETNAMESE (Tiếng Việt) LANGUAGE COURSES:

NEW TERM 3 COURSE BEGINNING WEDNESDAY 2 AUGUST 2022, 6:00-7:30pm!

Are you an intercultural couple with one originally from Vietnam? Would you like to make more sense to your Vietnamese partner and his/her relatives using Vietnamese? Are you thinking of preserving Vietnamese language and traditional culture for your offspring? Are you thinking of travelling to Vietnam – the world’s fastest growing tourist destination and immerse in its rich culture? Do you have the intention to work in Vietnam – world’s second-best destination for expats? EarthDiverse will help you sort these questions out through our Vietnamese language courses. Vietnamese belongs to the Austro-Asiatic language family in Southeast Asia. It has more than 100 million native speakers, including those living overseas in different parts of the world such as Asia, North America, Europe and Australasia. While the old Vietnamese, known as Chữ Nôm (Sina-Vietnamese), used to have pictographic script using Chinese characters, modern Vietnamese script is Latin-based, making it easier to learn for other European language speakers.

One of our newest language programmes introduced in 2022 Term 3, our Introductory Vietnamese (Tiếng Việt) course begins with basic conversation, an introduction to the Vietnamese script, vocabulary and introductory grammar. During our first term you will learn how to make some simple conversation, be introduced to the Vietnamese script, and learn some appropriate expressions for different situations. Learning about Vietnamese culture is part of our study.
