Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Vietnamese Phrase Book and Dictionary (Berlitz Phrase Book)?

You cannot call a person "ban".  Jul 12, 2009
This book is written for tourists to Vietnam and covers a wide range of subjects that may encounter when traveling in Vietnam.

But this book must be used with caution:

1) The pronunciation instructions are inaccurate. All the ng at the end of Vietnamese words is instructed to pronounce as [g]. Actually it should be [ng] as in song. For example, "khong", no/not in English, is shown as [kog]. If you say this way, Vietnamese people never understand you. I have tried it. My husband is a Vietnamese who speaks tieng Viet.

2) The Vietnamese language does not have a simple word for"you" instead it uses elaborate names relative to gender and your age. However, this book tries to make it simple and recommends using the word "ban", friend in English, in place for "you". It is highly inappropriate and sometimes unacceptably rude. Depending on the situations, it could mean intimately close. When you need to call someone, use "ong" for a man much older than you, "ba" for a woman much older than you, "anh" for a man about your age or younger and "chi" for a woman about your age or younger. It is a part of the culture and not negotiable.
