"The 2 month course just flied away in a blink. I was surprised by how much I have learnt and realized through the course. I want to attend more courses like this."

This is the common answer the team at VLS was so proud to received when we ask the students of our Teacher Training Program.

Who are VLS students?
A couple who find learning Vietnamese is challenging but still enjoy putting their effort into learning the language. Apparently, it's fun and memorable practicing a new language with locals

Banned in Vietnam until 1986, ‘Số Đỏ’, by the controversial and influential Vietnamese writer, Vu Trong Phung, is a bitter satire of the rage for modernization in Vietnam during the late colonial era.

First published in Hanoi during 1936, it follows the absurd and unexpected rise within colonial society of a street-smart vagabond named Red-haired Xuan. As it charts Xuan's fantastic social ascent, the novel provides a panoramic view of late colonial, urban social order..

With 2000 VND, which is around 9 cents, people in HCMC can have a decent meal at the Nụ Cười Restaurant or buy cloths at Hello Sunbox.
A restaurant sells lunch for loss, in the center of Ho Chi Minh City.

Nụ cười (Smile), is a chain of charitable restaurants founded by Tinh Thuong Charity Fund, where a typical day’s menu includes rice, stewed chicken with ginger sauce, stir fried vegetables, vegetable and ground meat soup, a piece of papaya for dessert, free drinking water, and free parking. All the foods and services cost 2,000 dong, or a tenth of a US dollar, and guests can have unlimited rice and soup refill.

9 Reasons Vietnamese is Easier Than You Think

Just how difficult is the Vietnamese language?

Pretty much impossible, if you ask the Vietnamese themselves and even people who are currently learning Vietnamese in Hochiminh City. The supposed difficulty of Vietnam’s official language is a point of national pride amongst its 90 million inhabitants, and locals are happy to tell you “tiếng Việt khó!” (Vietnamese is hard) at every possible opportunity.

So if you’re learning Vietnamese, or thinking about learning, it’s likely that all you’ve been getting so far is discouragement! In this article, I want to give you an alternate perspective, and offer you some encouragement, because chances are that Vietnamese is easier than you think.

It’s true that, with six tones and a plethora of strange vowel sounds that we don’t have in English, pronouncing Vietnamese can be tricky. But most expats in Vietnam (of which I was one for a year) fail to realise that the pronunciation is just about the only difficult thing about Vietnamese. Every other aspect of the language is extremely easy – far easier that what you might expect, especially compared to most European languages.

Don’t believe me? Here are nine reasons why Vietnamese is easier than you think:

“Sự tích dưa hấu” (The Tales of Water Melon’s Origin), an old and popular folk tale in Vietnamese culture, was rewritten by one of our student, anh Ryan Ward. This new version is delightful to read and able to wake up the love for folk and fairy tales which are likely to be forgotten by many adults.

His tone of writing is amusingly natural. The use of “contemporary words” is comfortable. And Ryan apparently used his own experience with water melons and functional and daily – life Vietnamese language as materials to recreate the story
