Description

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 the quickest and easiest way to learn Vietnamese. It's tiny 0.4 x 4.1 x 5.9 inches size makes it incredibly convenient to travel with but without losing the 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 the Vietnamese language. Added features include an easy-to-use pronunciation guide that distinguishes between Northern Vietnamese (as spoken in Hanoi) and Southern Vietnamese (as spoken in Saigon), and a Vietnamese dictionary Here's a sample of what you'll be able to do:

Meet people.
Go shopping.
Ask directions.
Ride the subway.
Order food and drinks.
And much more.

Review quote

"The Instant series from Tuttle, however, is not your usual phrasebook. Rather than focusing on phrases to help you order food, go to the hospital, rent a hotel room, or buy a train ticket, it provides you with more than 100 key words and phrases to help you express more than 1,000 unique ideas based on general conversation topics." -Eurolinguiste
