Oh of course D is Z in Hanoi areas. My fault I wasn't too clear on which dialect I am using.
Well guys, I know Hanoi dialect is the standard, and that's the writing I am using right now. The dialects in Vietnam are very mutually intelligible, just like the dialects within American English. People from the North can very easily understand the Southerns, just like people from the Northern USA can understand those in the South.
The differences are not that vast as British and American English.
But I have no choice, Matt speaks the Southern dialect, and that's the one I can use and teach to you all. I don't know anyone from the North, and neither does he. The writing in this course will be the Hanoi standard...we are capable of showing you that.
Sounds of this course: Saigon
Writing of this course: Hanoi...the writing of Standard Vietnamese
