Vietnamese is one of many world languages taught at De Anza. We provide a wide range of course levels to meet the needs of our students, including introductory and/or elementary sequences for all foreign languages offered, and intermediate and advanced courses for some.
If you have studied a language at another institution, to accurately assess your past instruction ( and support your success in further Vietnamese
language study) we require a World Languages Prerequisite Clearance to register in any class level VIET 2 or higher. If you would like to speak with or email an instructor, see our Vietnamese department faculty list.
Please follow these general rules to decide which course level is best for you.
- One year of high school language is equal to one quarter of De Anza language. For example, if you took Vietnamese 1 & 2 in high school, you can continue with Vietnamese 3 at De Anza.
