    Speaking some of local lingo always helps and never more than when it’s time for a meal. Locals will appreciate your efforts, even if your pronunciation is off the mark, and might just introduce you to some regional specialities you would otherwise never have discovered.

    A friend of mine tried to teach me some Vietnamese awhile back, but unfortunately, all I remember now is a few choice insults. :)

    my purpose don't have to teach Vietnamese for everyone. Thing which I want at here, I want to share information with everyone.
    I live in Vietnam, I meet many people to like studying Vietnamese. but they don't know where study? I only want to help a little.
    you can copy this board to use when you go to Vietnam on holiday.

    As far as I know - no, it is not. And frankly speaking, I can't imagine a single reason why it should be popular here. Is it popular in some other European countries?
    I wouldn't even say that learning any Eastern Asia language like Chinese or Japanese is really popular (those languages being much more important due to the number of native speakers and the economical (and cultural) power of China/Japan) in the Czech Republic, but at least those are being taught at several universities. Sure, there is quite a lot of Vietnamese living here but they seem to learn Czech very fast and even if they weren't I doubt the situation would be any different.
