About Vietnamese

Vietnamese  is the national language of Vietnam, and the mother tongue of the Vietnamese people. It is the most spoken language in the Austro-Asiatic language family, and is written using a modified version of the Latin alphabet with six tones.

Vietnamese speakers have emigrated all around the world, and nearly half of all overseas Vietnamese have settled in the United States. Vietnamese Americans are the fourth-largest Asian American ethnic group in the country. Over five million tourists have visited Vietnam in the past year.  Join us today in connecting with Vietnamese people and culture.
