Description:
Sign language varieties in Ho Chi Minh city, Hanoi, and Haiphong are usually considered to be separate languages. However, there are attempts to develop a national standard language, Vietnamese Sign Language.

These sign languages may be related to the native sign languages of Laos and Thailand. French Sign Language appears to have had an influence on Vietnamese sign languages.
