A Brief Vietnamese History – Vietnamese Culture for kids

Vietnamese history began 4000 years ago, the first King, and also the founder of the Vietnamese nation, was Hung Vuong. In their mythology, Lac Long Quan (Lac Dragon Lord) and Au Co had 100 children and Hung Vuong was the oldest son. According to tradition, The Hung dynasty ruled for eighteen generations. The last Hung king was overthrown in the third century B.C. by An Duong Vuong, the ruler of the neighboring upland kingdom of Thuc dynasty (Chinese dynasty). An Duong’s kingdom was short-lived. However, they were conquered in 208 B.C. by the army of the Chinese Qin dynasty.

From that day forward, China conquered the northern part of present-day Vietnam. Over the next several centuries Vietnamese culture was strongly influenced by Chinese.

In 939: Ngo Quyen (A Vietnamese hero) expelled the Chinese and founded the Ngo dynasty, opened a new era for Vietnamese. There were a lot of battles between China and Viet Nam from 939 to 1861. In 1861 French attacks on Vietnam prompted the emperor to cede a section of southern Vietnam, called Cochin China, to France.

In 1930: Ho Chi Minh established the Indochinese Communist Party to fight for independence from French colonial rule.

After World War II ended in 1945, the August Revolution was successfully, Viet Nam country was established.

In 1954: Vietnamese defeated the French at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu. Vietnam was temporarily divided into two zones.

The civil war happened after that and ended in 1973 when the United States also ended its military involvement in the Vietnam War.

1975: South Vietnam surrendered to northern forces. North and South Vietnam were officially unified under a Communist government as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. Saigon, the former southern capital, was renamed Ho Chi Minh City.

Vietnamese Language and Alphabet – Vietnamese Culture for kids

Vietnamese is a language spoken by about 82 million people mainly in Vietnam. There are also Vietnamese speakers in the USA, China, Cambodia, France, Australia, Laos, Canada and a number of other countries.

Vietnamese was originally written with a Siniform (Chinese-like) script known as Chữ-nôm. During the 17th century, Roman Catholic missionaries introduced a Latin-based orthography for Vietnamese, Quốc Ngữ (national language), which has been used ever since. Until the early 20th century, Quốc Ngữ was used in parallel with Chữ-nôm. Today only Quốc Ngữ is used.

Vietnamese alphabet and pronunciation

Vietnamese Alphabet

Notes

  • The letters “F”, “J”, “W” and “Z” are not part of the Vietnamese alphabet, but are used in foreign loan words. “W” (vê-đúp)” is sometimes used in place of “Ư” in abbreviations. In informal writing, “W”, “F”, and “J” are sometimes used as shorthands for “QU”, “PH” and “GI” respectively.
  • The digraph “GH” and the trigraph “NGH” are basically replacements for “G” and “NG” that are used before “I”, in order to avoid confusion with the “GI” digraph. For historical reasons, they are also used before “E” or “Ê”.
  • G = [ʒ] before i, ê, and e, [ɣ] elsewhere
  • D and GI = [z] in the northern dialects (including Hanoi), and [j] in the central, southern and Saigon dialects.
  • V is pronounced [v] in the northern dialects, and [j] in the southern dialects.
  • R = [ʐ, ɹ] in southern dialects

Vietnamese is a tonal language with 6 tones. These tones are marked as follows:

All About Vietnamese Culture – Vietnamese Culture for kids

Viet Nam has a rich and diversified culture with 54 local ethnicities that live across the country. After the long –term Chinese and French sway on its culture, Vietnamese culture made it possible to localize and make use of the foreign culture in their efforts to enrich their national culture. They include the culture that fused with cultural aspects of the Chinese people in addition to that of other countries that exist within the Eastern Asian region, original local culture and finally, the culture that cooperated extensively with Western culture (French).

When coming to Viet Nam, it is really easy to see above things: Like the traditional Chinese family, there are three Vietnamese generations living under the same roof or after getting married, the women usually stay at her husband in law and look after the parents in laws. Spanking is a common form of punishment that is administered once children develop past the early childhood age. Love of learning and respect of teachers are long term practices and become one of meaningful activities. (In Viet Nam, they have “Vietnamese teacher day”, in which you come back to visit your current/former teacher/professor). In Vietnamese language, you can find many words, which are come from French. For example:

Vietnamese: Cà phê, Áo sơ mi, ca ra vat…Etc…  (Coffee, Shirt, necktie)

This is derived from French: Café, chemise, cravat…Etc…

The Vietnamese people have a lot of festival holidays but Vietnamese New Year, more commonly known by its shortened name TET or TET Nguyen Dan is the most important, popular holiday and festival. Tet starts on the first day of the first lunar month and is the first season of the new year (according to the lunar calendar), and therefore it is also known as the Tet Nguyen Dan, literally meaning Fete of the Three Firsts.

The Vietnamese always try to come back to their homeland for a family reunion and a taste of the particular flavors of the Vietnamese festivities. To prepare Tet, besides re-decorating the interior of their homes, they really pay attention to the preparation of food specialties.There are two other items that cannot be missed: Banh chung (square cake made of glutinous rice, pork and green beans wrapped in the dong leaves and boiled) and pickled onions.

In the morning of the first New Year day, the children always wake up earlier and dress up carefully. After speaking the best wishes to parent, grandparents and relatives, they can receive lucky money on tiny red envelopes from adults. According to Vietnamese’s custom, giving lucky money to children, it will help the children be in good health and prevent from sickness. Their children will have lucky and happy year.

Nowadays, in modern life, the culture of Vietnamese people is keep changing but they always remind each other, especially their relatives to maintain the fundamental and common Vietnamese values: Family is top priority, yearning for a good personal brand name, love of learning, and respect for other people.
