Why should you
learn Vietnamese?

 

Vietnamese language history

Vietnamese belongs to the Mon-Khmer subfamily of the Austroasiatic language family of South and Southeast Asia. Vietnamese has been the official language of Vietnam since 1954, when the country gained independence from France, and is spoken by more than 80 million people in Vietnam and several million others around the world.

Vietnamese language and cultural facts

Around three thousand years ago, near the Ma River and Red River Deltas, the Tay and Mon-Khmer people merged, creating a shared language called Viet-Muong. These two groups of people created Chữ nôm, a Chinese-like script about one thousand years ago in order to write their own language. The script was spoken by common citizens and was used in literary works, history, medicine, and religion—but official and government documents were still written in the Classical Chinese script.

About the Vietnamese language

During the seventeenth century, Roman Catholic missionaries in Southeast Asia introduced a writing system for Vietnamese based on the Latin alphabet. This system was called Quốc Ngữ, literally meaning "national language." For nearly three centuries, the original Chữ nôm script and Quốc Ngữ were both used for writing Vietnamese, but in the early twentieth century, the use of Chữ nôm dwindled. Today only Quốc Ngữ is used.

Fun fact about the Vietnamese language

The Vietnamese language has six different tones, and a change in tone changes the meaning of the word. This can make the language a bit difficult to learn. (Don't worry; we'll help you succeed with our proprietary Rosetta Stone voice-recognition technology.)
