English-Vietnamese Phrasebook with Useful Word List for Vietnamese Speakers. Vietnamese Refugee Education Series, No. 1.
Nguyen, Hy Quang
This phrasebook serves to introduce a new Vietnamese resident to the daily activities of life in the U.S. and is intended as a handy reference book which the user can carry around for immediate reference when an English phrase or word is needed. The phrases and supplementary vocabulary in the nineteen units cover a wide range of situations, including introductions; shopping and dealing with money, numbers, and measures; employment; and school. The phrases are grouped by subjects and are selected for their directness, brevity, and relevance to the needs of a newly-arrived Vietnamese resident. They are for the most part presented in the form of short dialogues; the user says the appropriate part and listens to the other part with tapes. The two cassette tapes that accompany the phrasebook provide spoken models of both the English and the Vietnamese phrases. Two word lists of 1500 terms each, giving words most frequently needed, are also included in the phrasebook. (Author/AM)
