A knowledgeable, wonderful, talented, generous, kind, and trustworthy instructor. I love how he incorporates poetry & music (his own!) into our lessons. He's also authored numerous textbooks and dictionaries, so his expertise is unmistakable. Taking classes with him is a true honor. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A+++++ ThayBac is more than my father. He is sincere, kind, know how to listen, love his students, he has the biggest heart I could ever see in a person in my life. I wish my father is 1/10th of him... I think ThayBac is my father number 2 even he does not know it.

Thay Bac is an outstanding teacher. I learned a great deal without any experience whatsoever with Vietnamese in the past. He is a pretty lenient grader who often gives extra credit to students who will give some kind of short presentation. His style of teaching is the most effective I've seen in a language class. He's a super nice guy too.

Thầy Bác is really charismatic & understanding. He is always concerned with how much his students are learning & he is always willing to help. Class was entertaining & unforgetable b/c he makes it amazing. Thầy Bác always fights the department to allow more students in his class. I highly recommend this course to anyone whether or not y

Thay Bac is really cool teacher. He really wants you to learn Vietnamese and makes an amazing effort at helping you to learn it. Sometimes I get lost in class, but I guess that what office hours is for.

Very chill class atmosphere.He is very lenient and gives very little work.I wished he would've accomodated the non-VN speaking students more because more than half the time, I was clueless bc very few conversations in class are translated! Overall an easy and fun class.

Very understanding professor. He is very lenient on grading though the class itself is a bit unstructured from other classes. But that provide the opportunity for fun and social time. But overall, my reading and writing abilities improved a lot so Thay Bac really is a good teacher.

I love this class. I actually look forward to going to class. His midterms and finals are all fill in the blank and he gives you the words. It is the easiest thing ever. As for the grading, he grades everyone individually. You just need to put a little effort like showing to class sometimes. Otherwises this class is a piece of cake.

Comment:
The class is easy, but he speaks a lot of Vietnamese in class. Since I have no Vietnamese background at all, I found the class very intimidating because of all the Vietnamese speaking. However, getting an A in the class is very easy because he gives lots of extra credit for those who do extra work and many opportunities to improve lower grades.
