Vietnamese keyboard and how to write accents
Good news for you, learning Vietnamese might not be as challenging as you expected. You know why? Because Vietnam is one of the few Asian languages that does not have special characters like Mandarine, Japanese or Korean! It uses the same Latin alphabet, also known as Roman alphabet, the most common writing system in the world. That is due to the French colonisation in the 19th/20th century. Therefore, you only need to know how to use the different accent marks on the letters.
How to use a Vietnamese keyboard online
In order to properly wr ite in Vietnamese, you need to be able to use the accent marks that exist in the Vietnamese language. There are many online/virtual keyboards that show you the accent marks on screen and you can just continue to write on you own keyboard. If you choose one of the following virtual keyboards, you can continue using the keyboard on your device but it will have the accent marks.
How to download a Vietnamese keyboard tool
If you rather prefer downloading a keyboard tool that allows you directly to type with the Vietnamese accent marks, search for the following:
Or how to change the keyboard directly on your device
Another way to use the Vietnamese keyboard is to change the keyboard on your operating system (iOs or Windows). The only disadvantage then is that you don't see what key stands for which.
Press Windows Key + X from your keyboard
The Windows 8 Tools Menu will appear on the screen
Select Control Panel from the menu
Click Change input methods under clock, languages, region heading or click to switch to the small icons view under category view and select language
You are in the language preferences screen; from there select Add a language to include a new language of your choice
Choose Vietnamese to add to queue and hit the Add tab
Select the new language and click the Move up button in order to make the selected language as your primary language.
Restart your Windows 8 system, to effect the changes
- Click the Apple menu and select System Preferences
- Click Keyboard
- Click the Input Sources tab
- Click the "+" button to search for languages to add.
- heck the box for each input source you want to use. You can add multiple input sources.
Check the "Show Input menu in menu bar" box. A flag icon representing the current input will appear in the menu bar.
Click the flag to change input languages. You'll be able to quickly select from any of the input sources you've checked.
Use keyboard shortcuts to change between languages.
Command + Space - Switch to previous input language
Command + Option + Space - Switch to next input language

I teach: Russian
Hello! I'm a native teacher of Russian from Moscow. I have a Master's Degree in philology (The Pushkin State Russian Language Institute)... and I'm a fully qualified teacher of Russian as a foreign language. I speak English.In my lessons I use communicative methodology with development of all language skills, based on speaking. My lessons are well-organized and structured. I can help you to cope with Russian grammar, and it won't be boring at all! During my teaching career I've made my own grammar materials as the explanations in books don't usually give you the key for the correct usage of Russian. I've been working as a tutor of Russian (for natives, for foreigners, Rus. literature) since 2008 with different age groups. I've worked as a teacher at University, language courses, correction school. While working at the Pushkin Institute, I created the program of Academic Russian, which is useful if you're going to study in Russian universities. I can also effectively prepare you for the Russian language Certificate «TRKI», needed for studying, working or getting residence permits in Russia. Currently I teach Russian as a foreign language in Moscow State University. I've taught the directors in Russian departments of such well-known companies as Mitsubishi, Renault and Mastercard. They successfully passed C-1 level Certificate in Russian as a foreign language.Are you ready to master your Russian? Welcome! Read more
