Vietnamese Lesson 10 (Determiners and People)

Duration: 30 mins

I should congratulate you since you made it to our 10th lesson about determiners, articles, and quantifiers in Vietnamese. I hope you have already learned a lot so far. I will also provide in this page a vocabulary list about people, and finally some common phrases. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at Vietnamese Classes.


Determiners include definite and indefinite articles (like the, a or an), demonstratives (this and that), quantifiers (many, some etc.

The following are several sentences which include the determiners mentioned above. That way you will be able to see how the determiner is used in a full sentence. The table contains 3 columns (English, Vietnamese, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
