Vietnamese is a tonal language, It means that different voice inflections on any word will change the meaning of that word. For example, if you say “ban” with a rising tone, it means “sell” but if you say it with a falling tone, it means “table.” Tone is the central part of a word.
There are five tones in Vietnamese, plus a mid-level non-tone. Press each symbol button below to hear what each tone sounds like, and the name of the tone. Then press the word buttons to hear how one word can be pronounced with all six tones. Underneath is the English translation of each word.
It is time to practice.
