TIEU LUAN MAU 2 ENGLISH AND VIETNAMESE GREETING CULTURE

 
The second difference is in topic, common questions and expressing emotion of British and Vietnamese greetings. For the  
topic British often use some topic about food, weather, music, sport…ect while Vietnamese often mentions about private 
activities such as money, job, family, friend. Lover…etc. For common question British people often use some common questions 
about health to greet people in daily life such as: “how are you?”, “how are you been?”, “Howa ya doing?”… And they greet 
with these questions any time of day, while Vietnamese people only use them to greet people who have not met for along time 
and they often use some common question about family, children...to greet. For the expressing emotion Vietnamese rarely express 
emotion, feeling to others in greeting while British often express their feeling in greeting. For example, when two British friends 
meet together, they greet by kissing. However, It never happens to two Vietnamese friends. 
3. CONCLUSION
Through out making comparing between British and Vietnamese Greeting, we can see that Vietnamese and English greetings 
have a lot of the differences.


From this study, I would like to raise people’s awareness about British and Vietnamese greeting. Furthermore, I’d like to 
emphasize that teachers should pay attention to not only linguistic knowledge but also cultural one to provide our students with 
useful knowledge in their job in the future. I think that it is not easy for student to understand clearly about British greeting. 
Therefore, the helping of teacher is very necessary for them. I suggest that English teacher should use different material about 
different greeting in order to help students aware of second language. Besides, teachers should also find relevant materials to 
support student have useful knowledge about greeting. Especially, in British and Vietnamese greeting. Next, teachers should 
make condition for students to communicate with foreigners more often. Lastly, I also suggest teachers should give more 
exercises relate to greeting culture to help student fluent about greeting.
  We can see that we are living in an mordern period. It is not difficult to know any thing we need. Therefore, I suggest that 
student should self- search on intetnet , books, newspapers to understand more about British and Vietnamese greetings. Besides, 
they should communicate with foreigners more to aware of their greetings in each situations. Finally, students should aware of 
whether or not guestures are suitable in Vietnamses greetings.
