[Vancouver, Canada] — LingQ, the powerful language learning app developed by polyglot Steve Kaufmann, marks Hùng Kings’ Festival by releasing Vietnamese.

LingQ Launches Vietnamese 🇻🇳

Vietnamese is spoken natively by roughly 85 million people worldwide, including in significant diasporas in the US, France, Australia and Canada. A member of the Austroasiatic language family, Vietnamese has six tones making pronunciation vital in conveying meaning. The Vietnamese lexicon has borrowed vocabulary from Chinese, English and French over the years, highlighting its diversity.

Hùng Kings’ Festival is one of Vietnam’s largest annual celebrations and runs from April 9 - April 18 in 2024. The festival celebrates the Hùng Kings and all they did to establish modern-day Vietnam.

“My wife and I visited Vietnam a few years ago. I studied a bunch of phrase books but all I could say was thank you.” said LingQ co-founder and YouTube polyglot Steve Kaufmann. “Happy to add Vietnamese now so that I can prepare for my next visit. Rich history in this beautiful country of 95 million people.”

As with all languages offered on LingQ, Vietnamese learners will have access to interactive lessons, personalized vocabulary tools, a community of engaged native speakers and learners as well as the latest AI-powered tools for a comprehensive, immersive experience. Learners will have the opportunity to gain proficiency through reading, listening, speaking, and writing.

Vietnamese learners have access to the Vietnamese Mini Stories. This course of lessons features everyday situations and the vocabulary and grammatical structures needed to take beginners to the intermediate level. Learners in the LingQ forum have described the course as “painless grammar study” and reported going from kindergarten level to understanding top podcasts in their target language.

Vietnamese language courses are available on LingQ's website and app now.
