According to my personal experiences:



1. Keep your sentences as short as possible. i.e. subject + predicate.

Viet cau ngan gon thoi, mot chu tu, dong tu thoi.



2. Don't repeat words or ideas in your statement.

Dung sai cung mot chu hoac lap lai y nghia trong mot cau. Cu theo duong loi "mot cau mot y". Nhat la rat nhieu nguoi viet thich sai "the, that" cung voi noun de roi doc mot cau ko biet bao nhieu thu*/.



2. Increase the tone of your sentences with stronger vocabulary. i.e. using predicate with stronger words.

Lam y nghia cua cau van manh me hon bang cach sai nhung tu ngu ngan gon, mot chu ma cu du y nghia minh muon.



3. Get straight to the point, be very direct.

Noi thang mot cau mot y, thang duong, dung noi ve chuyen khac. Noi qua chuyen khac thi them cau khac.

example. My legs are weak, I need a wheelchair please.---co ve hoi demanding, nhung van lich su va ranh mach.

instead of: My legs are weak, i need help with the wheelchair. co cai y giong nhu la can nguoi day cai ghe cho ban vay.



side note: cam on ban nao hom qua da hoi minh cai nay, lay luon cau hoi cua ban lam example, ban dung buon nha.



4. Categorize your statements together into finite paragraphs.

Chia cau cua ban theo nhung doan van co cung mot y nghia ho tro nhau. Neu noi qua chuyen khac thi doi qua doan van khac.
