English term or phrase: I like you very much, so I want to see you next Sunday.
Dear Vietnamese translators,

The phrase:
I like you very much. so I want to see you next Sunday.

To be translated into Vietnamese language.

Please, tell me if Vietnamese written language uses more characters than English.
I would like to know this, because of space limit. Some languages take more characters than English, will you please tell me about this?

Thansk a lot!

Explanation:
Hi
Vietnamese pronouns are gender and age specific. So there are many ways of translating "I" and "you" into Vietnamese.
I gave the most neutral way of translating the sentences.

Vietnamese generally requires more characters than English. And you need Unicode to read Vietnamese properly as well.

I rewrite in proper Vietnamese as follows:
Gender-neutral:
Tôi rất thích bạn. Vì vậy tôi muốn gặp bạn chủ nhật tới.

Man to woman:
Anh rất thích em. Vì vậy anh muốn gặp em chủ nhật tới.

Woman to man:
Em rất thích anh. Vì vậy em muốn gặp anh chủ nhật tới.
