How to translate English to Vietnamese when you traveling to Vietnam.
Vietnamese grammar structure is almost identical to Chinese. Vietnamese is the single syllable. That means that each one syllable in Vietnamese is a word (carrying the full meaning).
English: translate (3 syllables) = but Vietnamese: dịch
Or: beautiful = đẹp
The order in Vietnamese grammar is simple, but it's not too complicated in English
Beautiful = Đẹp (2) and Girl = Cô gái (1)
If you say (1) beautiful (2) girl, you can say (2): Cô gái đẹp
English: 1 -2 but Vietnamese: 2-1
