I gather most of the people who visit this site are overseas Vietnamese in the States and other parts of the world. So for those who have a proficiency in the Vietnamese language, why not check out my wife's blog.....it's a Yahoo 360 jobby, of course.
She has written a lot and seems to be fairly reflective in her subject matter. I struggle to understand the entries (no ****, sherlock). Recently I have this nagging, gloating voice in my head that says learning a new language beyond the age of about seven is impossible....in fact it is scientifically proven (read The Language Instinct by Pinker). In terms of language acquisition, my brain is 1920's classic car that has been sat in a Hampshire barn for the last eighty years, rusting peacefully. To try and start it up now is just offensive. However, I still have the strength to push the mantra out of my head, ignore the futility of my efforts, and crack on.
How was that for a total deviation......once again, read the lovely Minh Chi's Blog to find out more about my better half/trouble and strife/ball & chain etc etc.
