It's amazing how 100 key words and phrases provide instant communication!
Do you want to speak simple Vietnamese but are too busy to study it? Are you visiting Vietnam for a short time and want a Vietnamese phrase book to help you communicate? If so, this is the book for you. It's tiny 0.4 x 4.1 x 5.9 inches size makes it incredibly convenient to travel with but without losing the most essential content for communication.
The idea of Instant Vietnamese is simple—learn 100 words and phrases and say 1,000 things. The trick is knowing which 100 words to learn, but the authors Sam Brier and Linh Doan have solved the problem, choosing only those words you'll hear again and again. Even with a vocabulary this small, you'll be surprised how quickly and fluently you too can communicate in Vietnamese. An added feature is an easy-to-use pronunciation guide that distinguishes between Northern Vietnamese (as spoken in Hanoi) and Southern Vietnamese (as spoken in Saigon), when the pronunciation is very different. Here's a sample of what you'll be able to do:
Ride the subway
Order food and drinks
And much more
