Here is the real beauty of the Assimil approach. Each unit should take only minutes a day to complete. The following day, one simply moves on to the next unit. Assimil — ate? Later, after 50 units or so, the student is encouraged to go back to the first unit and begin to translate the dialogues from the native language back to the target language.
OK, but where to? Would you like to go to the zoo? A zoo? What is that? It has plants, animals, people… Are there a lot of people? Today is Sunday, the zoo is crowded! Way to go! I kind of like the old-fashioned approaches. How did you decide on Vietnamese? You are commenting using your WordPress.

The Assimil courses contain anywhere from lessons in a course sadly, Vietnamese has only 63… The native language is printed on the even pages and the the target language is printed on the odd.
This makes it easy to cover up one side and translate back and forth without peeking. Each lesson consists of 10 line, brief, recorded conversations which teach the language in context not lists of isolated vocabulary words.
There are also some scant exercises and fill-in-the blank drills at the conclusion of each unit. I am told the conversations are intentionally composed such that they are authentic and colloquial. A woman who completed the French course told me that in France people were quite surprised with the authenticity of her French.
You actually speak French like we do! I had never done a full Assimil course before so I figured I had nothing to lose trying the course for Vietnamese.
After about 10 lessons, I felt totally lost. He said I would be amazed with how easy they would be; he was right! What seemed near impossible a week ago was pretty easy on review. Maybe there is something to the method and its existence nearly unchanged for almost 90 years! An unintentional, extra bonus is that my French is getting a heck of a lot better! You will be talking like, roughly, an unusually cosmopolitan three-year-old. These are my conversations that I learned this week… translated from Vietnamese… and French into English ….
Bai Thu Tam Are you still hungry? Not any more. OK, but where? Nearby, at a Vietnamese restaurant. You have eaten there before? Yeah before, many times before.
Well then, lets go. Bai Thu Chin This is my new house. How Beautiful! Your house, how many meters big is it? My house, it is meters big. How big! In this house, how many rooms are there? My house has seven rooms. Your family, how many people are there?
My family has 3 people. Me, my wife and my son. Bai Thu Muoi Excuse me sir, this square, what is it called? It is Da Kao square. We are looking for Tan Dinh market. Please sir, will you show us the way? You two arrive at the crossroad… afterwards, you two turn right. Tan Dinh market…from the crossroad, is it far? Thank you very much! Bai Thu Muoi Mot Is your work nearby? No, I work in the outskirts. How far from here? Well, from here, the outskirts are 30 km.
Then, how do you get to work? Well, by bike! Are you telling the truth? On to next week and 7 more lessons! Share this: Reddit Facebook Email Twitter.
