I am planning to buy a Kindle Touch Wifi but I heard that Kindle could only read 5 languages.

I'm not sure about this so I need your help. Can Kindle read Vietnamese or Korean?

Thanks for helping me!

If you buy the books from Amazon, the answer is YES for VN'ese - I tried it. If you send a PDF file and ask Kindle to convert, the fonts came out funny. The problem with reading PDF on the KT is that KT doesn't scale the font well. Thus, the font is either too small to read or takes up half the screen. Hopefully, with 5.1.0 and landscape, KT can handle PDF a little better.

The right term is "display", not read. The Kindle only "reads" in English, if you mean text-to-speech.
