Why Learn Vietnamese?
One of the luxuries of learning Vietnamese compared to many other Asian languages is that the Vietnamese script is far easier for English speakers to learn. Vietnamese is the 6th most spoken language in Australia so you'll get plenty of opportunity to speak it here at home.
Learning Vietnamese is a worthwhile endeavour. Considering Vietnam is an ever growing tourist destination for Australians, learning the Vietnamese language will earn you a lot of respect amongst the Vietnamese people on your travels and it will enrich your travel experience dramatically.
If you can learn Vietnamese phrases that will assist in common traveling situations your time in Vietnam will be a lot of fun.
