Vietnamese use several phrases for "Welcome" as this term can be used in different contexts. The above phrases are greetings to guests, and cannot be used in "you are welcome" when someone say thank youto you.
Besides, most of Vietnamese words should have accents on them, which I cannot add here in this frame. We need our own word processing program to do it
