Do you want to learn more than just how to introduce yourself in Vietnamese? Have you started to learn Vietnamese, but you want to learn more specialized vocabulary? Lucky for you, we have 35+ space-related vocabulary in Vietnamese that are out of this world for you! In addition to learning more traditional Vietnamese words and phrases, you'll finally be able to communicate what you're interested in!
When learning a new language, it's important to understand the basics, but you don't want to lose sight of your interests! Oftentimes, language courses don't teach you the more obscure vocabulary, but they focus on more common words instead. This vocabulary is undoubtedly important, but if you're interested in anything about outer space or our solar system, then this blog post is made for you!
We'll be going over space-related vocabulary soon, but before we do, let's talk a little bit about Vietnam and the Vietnamese language itself.
Space Pun #1: What is money called in space? (make sure to read until the end of this post to find the answers to all our great puns!)
The Vietnamese language is an Austroasiatic language, meaning that it's part of the Mainland Southeast Asia and South Asian language family.
It's important to remember that Chinese and French have had a significant influence on the Vietnamese language due to the history of the country. So, if you're already familiar with Chinese or French, you might want to consider learning Vietnamese next, or vice versa!
Space Pun #2: How do you get clean in outer space?
Vietnamese is written in the Vietnamese alphabet. This alphabet consists of 29 letters, consisting of 17 consonants and 12 vowels.
Keep in mind that Vietnamese sentences follow a subject-verb-object (SVO) structure.
Space Pun #3: Which type of stars always wear glasses in space?
Of course, the answer to this question depends on who you ask!
One important distinction between Vietnamese and other languages, especially English and English words, is that Vietnamese has six tones that you must learn! So, this can potentially make learning harder if you're not familiar with how language tones work or if you don't dedicate enough time to familiarizing yourself with them.
If you ever feel discouraged about learning Vietnamese, remember that no matter what your native language is, as long as you put in some time and effort to practice every day, you can learn any language you want!
Space Pun #4: Why did the star have a crush on the sun?
Vietnamese is the national and official language of the Southeast Asian country of Vietnam.
There are approximately 70 million Vietnamese speakers in the world. Besides Vietnam, you can find Vietnamese speakers in other Southeast Asian countries, East Asia, the U.S., Europe, and Australia.
Interestingly, Vietnamese has also been officially recognized as a minority language in the Czech Republic!
Space Pun #5: What type of music do aliens like most?
