How to introduce yourself in Vietnamese

When you first met someone:

First thing you need to do is to give the other person your basic information.

  • Name and age:

In Vietnamese culture, we hardly use “tôi” for “I”. Use “mình” (I) and “bạn” (you) if you meet someone that might be the same age. In case you already know the other person’s age, use: “em”, “cháu”, “chị”, “cô”, “dì”,… After that, tell your age so the two will pick the right pronouns to comunicate.

Ex: Chào bạn! Mình tên Yamada. Năm nay mình 20 tuổi. (Hello. My name is Yamada. I’m 20 years old.)

  • Where you are from and your life:

This is when you can freely talk about yourself. The content will differ, depending on the situation.

Ex: Mình đến từ Nhật Bản. (I’m from Japan)

Mình học ở trường đại học Sakura. (I study at Sakura University)

Lần đầu tiên mình đến Việt Nam. (This is the first time I’ve been to Vietnam.)

Rất mong được làm quen với bạn. (Nice to meet you.)
