The plural is the form which refers to more than one object or person. For example: I speak two languages the plural here is [languages] because it refers to more than one [language]. The examples below use plurals in different ways and places to demonstrate how they look when converted from their singular form.
|Grammar + Rules - Vietnamese|
|I speak one language|
[singular form] tôi nói một ngôn ngữ
|we speak three languages|
[plural noun] chúng tôi nói ba ngôn ngữ
|he visits many countries|
[adverb + plural noun] ông đã thăm nhiều nước
|they are happy now|
[plural pronoun] bây giờ họ hanh phúc lắm
|she has five red shoes|
[adjective + plural noun] cô ta có năm đôi giày đỏ
|I want a sandwich without onions|
[preposition + plural noun] tôi muốn một bánh sandwich không hành
The following is a list of examples showing both the singular and plural form. This demonstrates how the plural is used with humans, objects and animals.

Now it's time to practice your Vietnamese by looking at these phrases which are related to emergencies. Be prepared when traveling abroad, just in case you need help or by offering help to someone else. I recommend writing these expressions down on a notebook before traveling.
|English - Vietnamese|
|Help giúp tôi với!|
|Call the ambulance kêu xe cứu thương!|
|I need a doctor tôi cần gặp bác sỹ|
|Where is the closest pharmacy? nhà thuốc tây gần nhất ở đâu?|
|Are you okay? anh có sao không?|
