Reviews

"This is a superbly constructed textbook written by an experienced teacher for the benefits of beginning learners of Vietnamese...Professor Ngo is to be congratulated on his outstanding achievement; he has indeed produced a powerful tool in the area of learning resources for Southeast Asian languages." -Nguyen Dinh-Hoa, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics and Foreign Languages, Southern Illinois University at Carbondale "...It comes with a mp3 CD, which is super important because Vietnamese is a tonal language and the tones can be subtle to untrained ears." -I'm Not the Nanny blog
