Hai mươi lăm or hai mươi nhăm? What is a better way to say, for example, 25 in Vietnamese: hai mươi lăm or hai mươi nhăm? Or does it depend on the dialect?

"Hai mươi lăm" is standard way and seems to be more modern way. "Hai mươi nhăm" is popularly spoken in the North of Vietnam in the past. Now it is used mostly by aged people whose origin is in the North.
