Miscellany: I Think I'm Learning Vietnamese, Part 1

One of my biggest regrets is never learning a second language growing up, but thankfully that's something that can be rectified with some dedication.  After reading this review of DuoLingo from Justin at Swift/Silent/Deadly, I'm taking the plunge and trying to learn some of my mother's tongue, Vietnamese:

Of course, just typing words into an app (DuoLingo to start) isn't enough to really learn a language, so I am supplementing with textbooks and phrasebooks, audio courses, and plenty of interaction with a native speaker (thanks Mom). I'll post updates on the blog as my journey into tiếng Việt continues.
