Korean, Chinese and Vietnamese sounds totally different

Sunday, June 7, 2015
A lot of people seem to think that Viet, Korean and Chinese all sound the same. Well that's not true at all. I will admit, if you never been around different Asian people, then you wouldn't know the difference. So in that sense, YES it all will sound the same to you. But once you been around these different groups Asians for about a month or so, you will start to notice that the languages actually doesn't sound anything alike!

Korean's have a drag tone when speaking the Korean Language. It sounds like the end of every word is dragged out. It is a very calm spoken language unlike Vietnamese.

Vietnamese sounds very unique and is spoken from the back of the throat and nasal. It sounds harsh, when spoken. Most thinks it sounds a little weird and funny. But it definitely sounds nothing like Korean or Chinese.

Chinese sound has a rhythm to it. It's an up and down consistent rhythm.  Chinese and Vietnamese actually sounds close. However Chinese is spoken less harsh than Viet.

Watch my video below! Me imitating the different sounds;
I hope after watching this video, you can hear the difference.

Koreans- Beauty Supply stores and cleaners.
Vietnamese- Nail shops
Chinese- Restaurants
