Vietnamese Pronunciation Deck

5.37MB. 248 audio & 218 images. Updated 2017-11-28.


This is a flashcard deck made in the model of http://FluentForever.com's pronunciation decks. It focuses on the vowels, consonants, diphthongs, vowel combinations, word endings and minimal pairs that one encounters in Vietnamese, specifically the Northern accent. The vast majority of these are sourced from the pronunciation videos made by Austen Mersereau that can be found on his youtube channel https://m.youtube.com/user/austenmersereau, or through his website http://happyhanoi.com. I also sourced a couple of the sounds from the LearnVietnameseWithAnnie youtube channel that is another good resource for learning Vietnamese, although mainly focusing on the southern accent. As is the case with the fluent forever pronunciation decks, one should firstly use the videos to learn how the sounds are made and then use the decks to practice and memorise the sounds.

Excellent especially now that the website link is dead. As I don't like too much videos (too much on my broadband credit!), I appreciate the effort it took you to make this deck.

Some really good explanations of pronounciations on the cards, and good images. The minimal pairs exercises seem to be biased towards left hand choices though. Also, some of the recordings have low quality/varying volume.

This is great work, thank you! One minor note for anyone downloading them - you'll have to edit them since the answer is always the first one.

This deck is essential if you are learning Vietnamese. Vietnamese is a such a tonal language and some of the vowel sounds and combo vowel sounds are indistinguishable from one another. This set has audio files, words and pictures that show you to practice hearing these subtle differences in pronunciation.

Very useful in learning the distinctions between Vietnamese phonemes

Best deck for practicing both pronunciation and listening, especially for the small differences in some very similar sounds. Helped clear up some major confusions that I should have sorted out years ago.
