Our Vietnamese courses
At Vietlesson we put the student first. Our courses are formulated to achieve a specific goal, combining all elements of speaking, reading, writing and listening.
Vietnamese for Beginners
This is the starting point for all slightly worried newbie’s. Although you will soon realize there isn’t anything to worry about. Everyone in the class is the same level and within a few lessons you will be making good progress with the Tones, numbers and addressing your Vietnamese friends.
By the time you finish the course you will be having conversations, bartering like a local at the market and understanding what your Vietnamese colleagues are talking about.
Vietlesson Beginners 01 - Totally beginner
Vietnamese for beginners may seem to some like a slow process, but take it from me, you do not want to rush. The alphabet and tones is the key to understanding spoken and written Vietnamese. Breaking the language down into a simple step-by-step process will give you the confidence and understanding. Many people want to start learning words and sentences straight away, and this is why many people fail.
Once you grasp the basics, your next challenge will be your pronunciation. Combining new sounds and letters combinations will seem alien to you and takes practice. This is also where group learning has a massive advantage. The different nationalities and accents of your peers will mean you can more easily hear the correct way, and very often the wrong way in the early lessons. Remember, making mistakes is all part of learning.
The tones are what many people find hardest and this will take sometime to learn. For example; having four words spelled the same, but all spoken differently with a different tone, all having different meanings is enough for some people to never begin learning. Of course if it was easy, everybody would be doing it, right? Don’t lose all your motivation just yet however; the point is it will take time. If you start off with the right attitude it will help. Learning any language is a journey, not a short vacation. Consistency is the key, so come to the lessons, do your homework and like all our students, you’ll be surprised how quickly you progress.
By lesson 5 you will be learning verbs, practicing your listening and pronunciation and ready to start asking questions in Vietnamese. This is where your confidence really starts to build, as you will want to be practicing with people around you in your day-to-day life.
You will learn greetings; talking about work, different Nationalities, numbers, directions and many more much needed verbs and nouns. The course will take you through all different exercise’s which will be improving your reading, writing, speaking and listening.
In addition to the two lessons per week, you will have a downloadable application for your phone and laptop, which follows the outline of the course to help you build long-term memories. This application has been designed by Vietlesson to ensure you are learning as much information as the student can handle it. This course is an outstanding tool which will fast-track you to success.
To supplement the lessons even further, we have a weekly Vietnamese Speaking Club every Sunday morning at 10:30am. This value-added 90 minute lesson is designed for you to practice what you have learned, and ask for the words and sentences you really need to learn for your work, ordering at a restaurant, or any example that comes to mind.
