Southern Vietnamese Survival Phrases lesson 5 - Parting Greetings in Southern Vietnamese.
Today, we’ll introduce two parting greetings. If you already know how to say hello in Vietnamese, then you already know one way to say goodbye. Chào is the parting expression that can be used for all occasions. Remember, it is the falling tone.
So let’s hear it again, Chào.
And Chào.
Another way of saying goodbye is “See you again,” which in Vietnamese is hẹn gặp lại.
Again, hẹn gặp lại.
Every word in this phrase, hẹn gặp lại is said in the falling tone.
The first word, hẹn, means “appointment.”
Let’s hear it again, hẹn.
This is followed by “meet” which in Vietnamese is gặp.
Again, gặp.
Finally, this is followed by the word “again” which is lại.
So altogether, hẹn gặp lại, which literally means “appointment meet again.”
In English, we translate this as “see you again” hẹn gặp lại.
hẹn gặp lại
hẹn gặp lại


Okay, to close out today’s lesson, we'd like for you to practice what you've just learned. I'll provide you with the English equivalent of the phrase and you're responsible for shouting it out loud. You’ll have a few seconds before I give you the answer, so, chúc may mắn, this means “good luck” in Vietnamese.
Okay, here we go!
“Bye.” - Chào.
All right, that's going to do it for this lesson. Remember to stop by VietnamesePod101.com and pick up the accompanying PDF lesson notes. If you stop by, be sure to leave us a comment. Bye!
