  1. Gee it would be nice if you went back to Chinese characters instead of Latin characters! Too hard to remember it all otherwise. Which is a shame as the grammar seems to be similar.

  2. The lesson ‘s good. But this dialogue’s not lively.More simply is only picture.The actress is Vietnamese but her name don’t use Vietnamese name.If using Vietnamese name will be attractive.

  3. I’ve a lot of Vietnamese friends but I cannot communicate with them cos their pronunciation is different from english so always pronounced wrongly and mistaken by my Vietnamese friends
