Northern accent. Easy to follow along and repeat
I can read and write Vietnamese with very few issues and just wanted to brush up on my speaking since I almost never use Vietnamese anymore. It's super low paced. The speakers are very clearly from the north. It would have been nice to have a southern accent as well (I learned to use the southern accent). I finished units 1-30. I did not find level 30 to be very hard at all. I already have a pretty good understanding of the language but it might be hard if you are an absolute beginner. Still even if you skipped right to the end I'm sure you could pronounce anything in level 30 but I don't think you'd understand it. Easy to repeat. It's a tonal language and not being able to see the words might be difficult for absolute beginners. By unit 30 they were not breaking down long phrases in ways that tell you exactly what it meant, just how to pronounce the phrase in chunks. But I guess by level 30 you might have a decent understanding of the language already. I did not start as a beginner so I'm not a good judge of that. I wish there were longer chunks of reading to practice listening skills. You don't hear much besides a few sentences at the beginning of some units.
