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.

Knowing adjectives in Vietnamese is a powerful skill. It can make it easy to have a conversation about different topics by simply knowing some key words such as "good", "bad", "right", "wrong" etc. Adjectives are words used to describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence for example: I am happy. Vietnamese is easy.
Below is a list of 20 adjectives that you might come across or use very often. 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.
|Old (opposite of new)||cũ (trái nghĩa với mới)|
|Old (opposite of young)||già (trái nghĩa với trẻ)|
|Right (correct)||đúng (chính xác)|
Now we will try to implement some of the words above into full Vietnamese sentences. That way you will be able to use the word not only by itself but embedded in a structure.
