Hi.
I have been living in Vietnam for 3 years and have known a local friend. She is very kind and helps me a lot to learn Vietnamese. She recommended me a course book titled Vietnamese For Foreigners which i found very helpful and interesting. About the pronunciation, you don't have to worry because there is an electronic talking pen (It's called easy-Talk or something). It will read any sentence you point at ...it is amazing. I really like it.
Hope these information can be helpful to you.

ha ha how can a person learn Vietnamese even over a long period of time.. Anyway, for me it's a tough language, made that way by having pretty much no words or sounds in common with English. However, some do master it but guessing there is no easy route.

It is very hard to learn Vietnamese in a short time if you have not already learnt a tonal language.

I couldn't open the language website referred to. you could also try everydayviet.com The presenter speaks with a clear, southern accent.

When you arrive in Vietnam, there will many local women who will be happy to help you with your Vietnamese. Don't worry, just take it slowly.

There are many ways to learn Vietnamese. You can learn from textbook, go to a language school, listen to Vietnamese music, watch Vietnamese movie,…But according to my experience successfully master two foreign language (English and Japanese). There are 3 things that are required to be successful at any language, especially Vietnamese.

Figure out “Why you learn Vietnamese”. This reason will help you motivate through out the process.

In this video, the “top 7 reasons why you should learn Vietnamese”, I hope you will find the number one reason of your own that will really motivate you to continue to explore and have fun with this language, and of course, its culture and people.
Video youtube link: https://youtu.be/laNUNkRzq08
An inspier. Someone who have been there, done it, and guide you through the process or help you with difficulty along the way.

You can visit my youtube channel to learn more about Vietnamese language tips and tricks, understand more about Vietnamese culture, update the closest scene in the life of Vietnam, interesting facts behind the scene, and so much more.
Youtube channel: “Languageasy with Chapi”
A Vietnamese partner to practice with. The fastest way to master a language is to communicate A LOT with native speaker of the language you are trying to learn, like the way you learned your mother language.
I can also help you find Vietnamese partner if you request my help.
Hope it was helpful.
