Overview

Making Out in Vietnamese is a fun, accessible and thorough Vietnamese phrase book and guide to the Vietnamese language as it's really spoken.

Anh dien cuong vi em! Chung ta gap lai sau duoc khong?—(I'm crazy about you! Can we meet again?) Answer this correctly in Vietnamese and you may be going on a hot date. Incorrectly, and you could be hurting someone's feelings or getting a slap! Vietnamese classes and textbooks tend to spend a lot of time rehearsing for the same fictitious scenarios but chances are while in Vietnam you will spend a lot more time trying to make new friends or start new romances—something you may not be prepared for.

If you are a student, businessman or tourist traveling to Vietnam and would like to have an authentic and meaningful experience, the key is being able to speak like a local. This friendly and easy-to-use Vietnamese phrasebook makes this possible. Making Out in Vietnamese has been carefully designed to act as a guide to modern colloquial Vietnamese for use in everyday informal interactions—giving access to the sort of catchy Vietnamese expressions that aren't covered in traditional language materials. Each expression is written in Vietnamese next to the English, so that in the case of difficulties the book can be shown to the person the user is trying to communicate with.

This Vietnamese phrasebook includes:

  • A guide to pronouncing Vietnamese words correctly.
  • Explanations of basic Vietnamese grammar, such as, personal pronouns and tones.
  • A guide to male and female usage.
  • Authentic Vietnamese script (Chu Nom) as well as simplified phonetic spellings for all phrases.
  • Useful and interesting notes on Vietnamese language and culture.
  • Lots of colorful, fun and useful expressions not covered in other phrasebooks.

Titles in this unique series of bestselling phrase books include: Making Out in Chinese, Making Out in Indonesian, Making Out in Thai, Making Out in Korean, Making Out in Hindi, Making Out in Japanese, Making Out in Vietnamese, Making Out in Burmese, Making Out in Tagalog, Making Out in Hindi, Making Out in Arabic, Making Out in English, More Making Out in Korean, and More Making Out in Japanese.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you already have a decent grasp of tones, you'll glean some new vocabulary. It's also make a practical study guide to use with a Vietnamese teacher…" —ElkaRay.com

"One of the things that I most like about the books is that they include the English translations of the phrases as well as the sentences and words in the writing system of the language alongside the transliteration. This is great both for those who are interested in a more conversational approach and for those interested in more in-depth learning." —Eurolinguiste
