italki teacher since Aug 2, 2022
Hi future students! My name is Van, a global citizen :) Even though I'm from Central, I've lived in Sài Gòn for a while so I can speak these two accents so don't worry about the accent :)
I'm a music lover. Music has been my greatest passion in life. I've fallen head over heels in love with melodies since I was a child. You know, Vietnamese is a tonal language, so come and "sing" with me :)
I love my language - spreading this love with you guys is just icing on the cake. I'm also an aspiring language learner. Before passing away, I want to study and become fluent in at least 5 languages. Find out which languages are those :)
Me as a Teacher
I pride myself on being a patient, receptive and very understanding tutor.
If you are shy, I will start conversations. If you are worried about making mistakes, I will help you understand what is wrong and how to fix it :)
My lessons & teaching style
I´m here on Italki to listen to you practice Vietnamese, because I am curious about how YOU experience the world we live in.
I don't think my classroom is a one-way street. I believe we both will learn from each other, right? So pick my brain about Vietnamese. I'll pick yours about your language and other things :)

This teacher's excellent understanding of American English idiom really helps him to explain Vietnamese idiom with parallel examples in both languages. Wish I had focused on his Advanced Vietnamese class earlier!

Thiên's profile video really stood out for me, so I knew I had to book a class with him. It was when he said "If you are bored of Northern or Southern accent then I might be a good choice." Having something other than Northern or Southern accent to offer students is not what makes him a good choice. Thiên strikes as really humble and sincere. He was very enthusiastic and supportive. Even if I couldn't express everything I wanted to say in Vietnamese, he encouraged me to say it in English. He would then translate it into Vietnamese and break it down. After not having any classes for a couple of weeks, I confess I wasn't feeling very motivated but after our class started I immediately forgot all about that.

Văn is very easy to learn from and get along with. He makes conversation and is supportive in class. He knows when to focus on pronunciation and when to let me speak so I can practice other things without interrupting the flow of conversation. I knew nothing at all about Vietnamese when I started, and he adapted to that well. Every class feels casual and fun, but he still provides enough structure for me to target my learning.

I've been studying with Văn for just over two months, and I am glad to say we have been developing a sweet friendship. I highly recommend him. His perfect command of English helps smooth communication, especially when I forget a word in Vietnamese. On top of that, he understands idioms and slangs, adding depth to our lessons. Beyond his linguistic skills, Văn is a vibrant and enthusiastic teacher, making each class engaging. In this short time, I've seen progress in my reading skills, and I credit much of it to his teaching. If you're looking for a knowledgeable and energetic language teacher, Văn is the perfect choice.
