Vietnamese is one of a few languages in Asia that uses the Latin alphabet. This makes it much easier to interpret street signs and even to learn to speak. The other good news is that Vietnamese grammar is among the easiest to pick up, with very few rules to learn. Due to it being a “tonal” language, pronunciation is a bit trickier, and this makes learning Vietnamese that much more fun! Vietnamese society and culture have an organic relationship to their environment, and Vietnamese have a strong attachment to the natural world, reflected in their traditions.
