You became popular thanks lớn yourfun and informative videos on YouTube about Vietnamese. What made you decide to lớn start creating those videos?



I LOVE the Vietnamese language.I think the language itself has a lot of character & it allows me toexpress myself more in some aspects. Itreally breaks my heart when I see peers or children not knowing Vietnamese whocannot talk to their relatives. There’sa huge disconnect because of the language và culture barrier and it kills mebecause they are missing out on the community connection. I am really blessed to be able khổng lồ connect tothe adults around me and I’ve been able lớn gain so much wisdom from them, so Iwant to vị whatever it takes lớn help my Vietnamese American community vày thesame.



To be honest, I am really blessed that my mom forced me to lớn speakVietnamese at trang chính and I actually enjoyed Vietnamese dubbed dramas. It was nothard at all since I used it everyday with my family. Now, reading and writing is anotherstory. I think for that I had toreconnect with family in Vietnam giới and make friends with Vietnamese peopleoverseas who did not know how lớn write English. This forced me to lớn read andwrite Vietnamese. Praise the Lord forvoice-to-text… that helped me tremendously.

Do you have sầu any tips to makestudying Vietnamese easier?

In everything, you have sầu lớn know why you are learning in the first place. What is your purpose in learning & practicing Vietnamese? Is it khổng lồ impress your friends? Is it to lớn connect lớn your family members? Or is it to pass a class lớn get your elective credits? If someone is really serious about learning Vietnamese, they need a community. If you are never practicing it or forced lớn use Vietnamese, it will be almost impossible lớn fully master the language. So my tip is to lớn find a community and use it, maybe even watch a few movies that are Vietnamese. I learned my Vietnamese through constantly watching Vietnamese dubbed Hong-Kong dramas.
