xin chào - Hello
Chào mừng bạn đến viet nam - Welcome to Vietnam
Thuong Nguyen, also commonly known as Vietnam Lantern Festival or First Full Moon Festival is held on the first full moon day of the first lunar month. This festival is mostly held in temples of pagodas because the full moon day is called the day of Buddha.
Lanterns in the making!
We also learnt how to count 1-10 in Vietnamese, thanks to our Vietnamese teacher Jenny who came all the way from Room 14 to help us with our counting.
1-10 in Vietnam - Mot = One, Hai = Two, Ba = Three, Bon = Four, Nam = Five, Sau = Six, Bay =Seven, Tam = Eight, Chin = Nine, and Muoi =Ten.
