Tools to learn Vietnamese Language
Human beings possess the natural talent to teach each others. Or more accurately, to inspire each others to learn through teaching, tutoring, mentoring.
In situations where the skills to acquire are very well-defined, a software may be a good alternative. What's more, it never gets tired and it is probably always correct (should it have been programmed correctly).
Below, we introduce you the tools that help you learn Vietnamse Language. Some are built by ourselves, some are from other sites. We hope you find them useful. Enjoy!
If you know other useful tools for learning languages, do share with us.
Looking up a word in dictionaries and we can find its meanings. Good dictionaries also provide example usages and collocations. But sometimes we wonder how it's actually used in real life. This Vietnamese Words in News tool answers that question: enter a Vietnamese word or phrase and it gives you online recent news which use that word/phrase.
Another especially interesting feature is that you can also use Microsoft Translate inside the tool to translate the news results into your native languages, or languages you know well.
This site provides 2 tools that are quite useful:
- LeeRit Extension: the nice thing about this is that it has built-in dictionaries that allow us to conveniently look up new words (Vietnamese and English). In addition, and quite surprisingly, it also allows us to save the new words, meanings and contexts into their LeeRit decks to review later.
- Smart Flashcard: this works like a Spaced Repetition System that helps remember new words faster.
After going through the lesson on saying Vietnamese numbers, if you have any doubts, you can use this Vietnamese Number Pronouncer tool to help you practice: Enter a number and it shows you how to say that number in Vietnamese.
What is even more wonderful about this tool is that it also shows the mapping between the English way of saying and the Vietnamese way, so that you can learn better.
This Vietnamese typepad helps you type Vietnamese, without the need to install any software.
We know that some letters in the Vietnamese Alphabet have accent marks.
The site has a Vietnamese version at Gõ dấu tiếng Việt.
