My name is Theodore. I'm a native Vietnamese from Hanoi and have been in Singapore for 10 years. The language of instruction is preferably English, although Mandarin can be used to enhance the learning process when needed. I have taught friends basic conversational Vietnamese that enabled them to get by with their 6-month work assignments in Ho Chi Minh city and at the same time enjoy the most out of the local life. I speak with a standard Hanoian accent, the clearest Vietnamese accent in terms of tones. It is very important for beginners to learn Hanoian accent as it is understood by people from all parts of the country. On the other hand, it will be easier for you to understand other Vietnam accents too.
