4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not bad - some flaws 18 juillet 2013
Par Kobe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As Vietnamese language books go, this text suffers from the same flaws that most courses have: the author(s) can presume too much. Too often, even in the beginning sections of the book, the authors will use terms that have yet to be introduced nor do they appear in the limited dictionary at the back. Also, phrases/concepts will be introduced and then never repeated again. The vocabulary for beginning books should ALWAYS be on day to day speech, never on political jobs and other seldom used concepts. Still, the book covers a broad range of topics and has taught me more than a few new phrases and grammar points. I can't speak of the audio (bought mine used), but a second year student should already know how to pronounce most words by sight (more or less).

Still looking for that perfect course in Vietnamese, and have found some good ones (FSI and Intermediate Spoken Vietnamese are I think are the best) but I'm working through this book and am finding it useful.

This CD course NECESSITATES the accompanying book, but they are not sold together as a single product. I have the Cambodian version and found it very good as a continuation after learning basic Khmer by other methods. I still chased down the book online though to maximize the benefit.

Good basic but has to some extent been overtaken by developments in Viet Nam. The next edition is more up to date

2.0 étoiles sur 5 "Colloquial Vietnamese" by Tuan Duc Vuong is disappointing 17 mai 2010
Par William R. Wolf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Writing a short grammar of Vietnamese for English speakers is not especially easy: the syntax (word order) and vocabulary, to say nothing of the pronunciation, are very different from English. Still, even bearing these difficulties in mind, this book is a disappointment.

First, let's begin with some of the good points. Each lesson is broken up into a number of parts and each begins with a short, useful dialogue in Vietnamese with an English translation below and with a short vocabulary list below. That's good. Most lessons then have several short discussions of new grammar or vocabulary introduced in that dialogue. Also good. There is usually at least one other dialogue with translation in the middle, and a final dialogue without translation at the end. The problem is that too often the final dialogue includes vocabulary items that are new. This final dialogue should only be used to recycle and review terms and structures already covered in that lesson; it should not be used to introduce new material, especially as it remains untranslated.

However, there are many weaknesses in the book. Often dialogues and exercises include terms that have not been introduced. It's tedious to flip to the glossary in the back, and a good introductory text never requires users to do this. Vocabulary should be introduced in a regular and careful manner, and new, as yet undefined terms, should not be introduced without a gloss.

A huge weakness is in the pronunciation. Far too little attention is given to this in the first chapter, and the accompany tape does a very poor job. It consists of far too rapid readings of some of the dialogues and gives only a few minutes to practice on the tones themselves. The transcription system, especially for the vowels, is limited. It combines sounds which in Vietnamese must be kept separate. Simply urging the reader to find a native speaker or to enroll in a course is not acceptable. The title is **colloquial** Vietnamese, and to be true to the name of the book and the series, much more needs to be given on the speaking.

Some of the exercises are good: fill in the blank, definition, describing, answering questions, making questions to match answers that are given. Moreover, the answer key in the back is certainly helpful.

But there should be more of these exercises. A number of times a supposed matching game is set up (match the Vietnamese terms on the left with the English translation on the right) but this is often executed sloppily. Many times the matching terms are opposite each other, and often the reader is expected to match terms that have not been adequately introduced.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Poorly Organized 12 janvier 2010
Par Ms. Kim H. Le - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is one of the most poorly laid out language books I have studied from. First of all, I would like to state that languages are not my forte and I am not a natural at linguistics. Vietnamese is the fifth language I have studied and this book has made it most frustrating. The vocabulary is scattered all over each chapter rather than concisely at the beginning or end like better organized books. The glossary often does not have words the reader is looking for when they have forgotten them chapters later. There are also a few typographical errors in the answer key which further confuse the student.
Also, table of contents only lists the titles of the chapters and does not list subtopics or chapter objectives. So if the student wants to reference a certain language point, he/she has to remember which chapter it was from then comb the chapter to find it.
