•Cam Un - Thank(s)
•Di di! - Go, go! / Go away!
•Im di! - SHUT UP!
•Anh Guk - EAT POO!
• Yaa - Yes
• Kum - No
• Koh Tey - Maybe

So here are the things I'm requesting :
•I don't know? - ?
•Nevermind! - ?
•"Ohh, nothing." - ?
•What are you doing - ?
•How are you - ?
•"WOW! biggrin.gif" - ?
• No problem - ?

• I'm __ years old - ?
• I like you a lot - ?
• "Ohh WHATEVER! D:" - ?
*• any other small sayings that are important +

•Du Ma - Mother F - er / YO' MOM!
•Du Ma May - SOMETHING REALLY BAD
•Xin nChao / nChao - Hi / Hello It's Xin chào. Where do you get the n before chào and make it nchao???
•Cam Un - Thank(s) The correct way to spell it is "Cảm ơn". Ơ is pronounced like the "e" in "mother"
•Di di! - Go, go! / Go away!
•Im di! - SHUT UP!
•Anh Guk - EAT POO! You mean "ăn cứt". Well I guess your spelling does sound like the Southern accent then
• Yaa - Yes Correct spelling is "dạ". It's pronounced "Za" in Northern Viet and "Ya" in Southern Viet
Kum - No It's Không, not Kum. The ending is -ng, not -m. I don't hear anybody say it as "kum"
• Koh Tey - Maybe The correct spelling is Có Thế

So here are the things I'm requesting :
•I don't know? - ? Tôi không biết
•Nevermind! - ? Không có chi
•"Ohh, nothing." - ? Không có ǵ
•What are you doing - ? Bạn đang làm ǵ thế?
•How are you - ? Bạn khỏe không?
•"WOW! biggrin.gif" - ?
• No problem - ? Không có chi
• My name is _____ - ? Tôi tên là ___________
• I'm __ years old - ? Tôi _____ tuổi
• I like you a lot - ? This depends on the situation. A friendly phrase would be "Tôi mến bạn lắm"
• "Ohh WHATEVER! D:" - ? Sao cũng được
*• any other small sayings that are important +
*• any un-hurtful PLAYFUL??? words or insults? xD Why would I tell you?

I just want to talk like crazy in Vietnamese to all of my Viet friends. icon_smile.gif
CAM UNG~! icon_wink.gif Again, it's cảm ơn.

Do you know what's a worse way to tell somebody to go away than "đi đi"? embarassedlaugh.gif It's "Cút đi" (pronounced "Koot di") and "xéo đi" (pronounced "seo di")

This will help you better with pronunciation. It's really hard to teach someone vietnamese by just typing it

One of the most important aspect of Vietnamese is knowing how to address yourself and others. You might come across as rude if you don't get this right. In most cases, this only applies for vietnamese. For foreigners, it doesn't matter that much. You're trying to learn vietnamese, that's the most important thing.

What xigon wrote above was a little too formal though. I personally don't use "Tôi" to address myself at all.
It depends on who's you're tallking to. Here are some basic examples:

Male version:
If you're older, you address yourself as "anh"
If you're younger, you address yourself as "em"

Female versioin:
If you're younger, you address yourself as "em"
If you're older, you address yourself as "chị"

If you're just friends, you can use "tao" "mày"

OK, I'll do a female version for the ones above
•I don't know? - em không biết
•Nevermind! - ? There's really no direct translation but "Không có chi" or "Không có ǵ" would work
• I like you a lot - ? Em thích anh (this only applies between female and male)

The word "thích" means "like" in sexual relationship. You can't use "thích" when you say "I like you" as friends.

Everything else is pretty much similar to xigon. You can replace "tôi" by "em" "anh" "chị" depending on the situation

You might find some of these helpful

I don't understand - Em không hiểu
I'm studying Vietnamese - Em đang học tiếng việt
