This is off topic in food, but I had a general question.
I’ve noticed that quite a few Vietnamese people, including ones that I know personnally and ones that I follow on social media tend to omit past tense from their English. I have asked some of my Vietnamese friends (who tend to not use past tense) but have been met with non-explanations.
Is there a general reason for this or something cultural/linguistic? I’ve heard that Vietnamese like Chinese doesn’t have tenses. Any insight would be appreciated.
