Spread of the Vietnamese language

This smaller map removes the countries where Vietnamese is dominant. This map therefore only shows 3.2% of all speakers of Vietnamese. The territory omitted is Viet Nam.

Vietnamese is spoken as a first language by approximately 73 million people in around 12 territories. It is spoken by nearly 90% of the population of Viet Nam, and by more than a million people in the United States. It is also spoken in large numbers in Australia, Canada and Cambodia (where it has similarities to the official language, Khmer).

Territory size shows the proportion of all people who speak Vietnamese as a first language that live in that territory.
