BEGINNER'S VIETNAMESE 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

There are no Cd's to accompany this book, so it is mainly to use for those who have studied Vietnamese before, have access to a native speaker or have access to listening material such as Pimsleur. -- The exercises consists of reading passages,word substitution drills, and translations. -- This is a large book with a correspondingly large vocabulary build-up. It covers the honorific pronouns and respect-language early on. The grammar is very well explained. -- On its own I'm not sure if it is the best book to start with, I think Vietnamese for Beginners by Paiboon Publishing with its accompanying CD is the absolute best material to start with. But I have used Quinn's book as a complement to the Paiboon-book and I am very satisfied with it. -- Worth mentioning is that Quinn's book has a more traditional feel to it - in vocabulary and expression - and perhaps not as modern as the Paiboon-book. This is another reason why I was attracted to it as the 'older' expressions have a more respectful feel to them, but I guess that is matter of personal taste.
