First blog post

First blog post

I pretty much started this blog in a (probably) feeble attempt to improve my Vietnamese. The area I live in has the some of the largest concentration of Vietnamese in the United States. At the moment I’m unemployed and many of the job listings either require or highly recommend fluency in Vietnamese. So here I am.

I thought about doing this after actually listening to and reading the lyrics of some famous Vietnamese songs and noting how poetic some of the songs can be (even with my fairly limited understanding).  It’s my hope that I will not only gain a better understanding of the Vietnamese language, but a better appreciation for the music as well.
