Welcome back listeners! So did you try any street food in Vietnam? It's very reasonably priced and delicious too!

Hi Bryan Freeman,

Thanks for your comment! At the moment we don't have any specific tutorial videos on how to pronounce this specific word "người" (will forward this to our team!). But if you get on YouTube and search for "how to pronounce ng in Vietnamese" then several good instruction videos will show up. Let us know if that works and if you have any other questions.

Chào bạn Kn,

"bao nhiêu người?" is absolutely correct.

***The structure is : "bao nhiêu/ mấy + classifier + (Noun)"

You can abbreviate the Noun - but NOT the classifier. For example:

>>> How many pens? --- Bao nhiêu/ Mấy cái bút? or Bao nhiêu/ Mấy cái? ("cái" is a popular classifier. You can use it with: pen, table, chair, car, bike, tivi,...)

***"mấy" and "bao nhiêu" both means "how much", "how many". The differences are:

- We do NOT use "mấy" when asking about money. "How much is this?" - you say: "Cái này bao nhiêu tiền?"

- "mấy" is used when you think the quality is less than 10. So, can you guess: why we use "mấy" and "bao nhiêu" like in these following sentences?

>>> "Cháu mấy/ bao nhiêu tuổi?" - "Cháu 5 tuổi."

>>> "Chị bao nhiêu tuổi?" - "Chị 30 tuổi."

Looking forward to your answer. :)

Have a great time,

If I say to a Fluent Vietnamese speaker - bao nhiêu người? (bao nhiêu = How many/how much + người = people)

Will he/she understand me?.

Also, is it grammatically correct to say bao nhiêu người?.

For Weng Fook (earlier comments)

The Audio of the sample sentences can generally be obtained if you go to:

Hi Weng Fook,

Thank you very much for your comment.

We understand that it would be easier for listeners if we include all the sample sentences in the audio.

However, this is the "Survival phrases" series and we aim to teach you only one important sentence/phrase/structure in a certain circumstance in each lesson so that you would be able to use them when needed. The sample sentences in the lesson notes are used for your reference when you learn the key vocabulary of each lesson.

Instead, we will teach more complicated structures/words/grammar points in detail in different series. You can take a look at our video lessons, or other audio series such as "Introduction", "All about Vietnamese", "Pronunciation" etc. We hope you'll find them all interesting and helpful too.

Thanks again and have a nice weekend.

So far I have found the lessons clear and helpful.

There are "Sample sentences" within the PDF lesson notes.

I would greatly appreciate for the Vietnamese sentences to be included within the audio recording.
