Videos: Tips & Language With Miss Ha

Learn to speak like a local

Hi, welcome to Vietnamese language and tips with Miss Ha. 

There’s nothing like local knowledge.  From the price you should pay for fruit to how to get your motorbike fixed – Miss Ha is here to tell all!

But if you truly want to see what Vietnamese hospitality is like, learn to speak like they do! 

You need to know the tones!

Contrary to what the guide books tell you,  it’s nigh on impossible to learn Vietnamese from a phrasebook!  Why?  Because it’s tonal.  There are six tones to master.  They’re those squiggly things above and below words.  Depending on the tone a word can have six different meanings.  So if you want to avoid telling people you’re a dork or a wind bird (as we did for a year), have a look at Miss Ha’s language videos.  

And remember, if you pronounce even one word right, you will get the best reception you can imagine (the market seller may even call their friends in to listen).

So:  Chúc may mắn (good luck)
