As Valentine day is coming, many couples all around the world, including Vietnamese lovers. are getting excited about it. Valentine’s Day  is called “lễ tình nhân” in Vietnamese. It is now becoming a recent tradition for Vietnam.

On this day, Vietnamese couples exchange gifts, such as flowers, chocolate, a greeting card, stuffed animals, etc. Also, some other common activities are eating out, going to movies, etc.. For this special occasion, you can easily see couples hand in hand walking around the street and having fun together.


If you are in love with a Vietnamese, why don’t you try some simple ways to express your love in their language.

I remember one famous sayings by Nelson Mandela: “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.”

Saying the 3 important words in Vietnamese ensure 50% successful rate of the proposal. Of course, you may receive a “yes” if he/ she has some special feelings for you.
