First Thousand Vietnamese Words for Students

Common Questions


What is Palm OS?

There are two primary types of handheld computers, also known as PDA's. About 60% use the Palm operating system from Palm. About 40% use the Windows CE operating system from Microsoft.

Here are some photos of handheld computers which use Palm OS and work with our Viet1000 software:

Here are some photos of handheld computers which use Windows CE and therefore do not work with our software:

Will you support Windows CE in the future?

If there is enough interest, we will. If you are interested in a Windows CE version, please tell us by email and include the brand and model of Windows CE computer which you are using.

Will this software work on my Windows PC or Windows laptop?

We do offer a dictionary for Microsoft Windows. Also, please check out our Vietnamese tutorial for Windows which does work on a Windows PC or Windows laptop with a CD-ROM drive.

Once I learn these thousand words, how can I get more words for this software?

If you like, you can upgrade to VietAnh, our Vietnamese Dictionary for Palm OS. It is just as simple to learn and as simple to use as Viet1000. The larger word list in VietAnh allows you to read and understand much more.

How do I write Vietnamese characters on a Palm OS computer?

First tap the "v" or "V" button. Then write a vowel on the left side of the Graffiti area followed by one or more digits on the right side of the Graffiti area. This pattern produces nearly all of the Vietnamese characters. The remaining characters are created by writing double letters such as "aa", "oo", "uu", "dd" on the left side of the Graffiti area followed by zero or more digits on the right side of the Graffiti area.

More detailed instructions are provided during the download. On your PDA, you can also tap the menu button and then tap "Help, Characters" to get instructions. You can also download a Graffiti reference sheet to carry with your Palm computer.

Does the Palm OS computer display Vietnamese characters?

Yes. Look closely at these screen shots to see the Vietnamese font.
