Singing portion too short. Wish there was audible intro to alphabet, intonation and pronouncing.

Great songs. My husband is vietnamese, but his vietnamese is not that good. I wanted to find a way to get my infant familiar with the sounds of Vietnamese language through passive listening. The songs are good but the actual singing portion is too short in duration- seems like 15 min. Half the CD is just instrumental so the listener can sing on their own, but useless for people who are only getting a handle on Vietnamese dialect and definitely useless for what I needed: passive listening for an infant. I also wish they introduced the alphabet and how to pronounce it. The book introduces it, but would be more helpful if you can hear the pronunciations/intonations broken down too. I have a language CD for Chinese that is so much better- slow speaking of poems and rhymes that maximize the different intonations and sounds used in Mandarin, intermixed with music that lasts 60 minutes. They should have a Vietnamese version too.
