(classifier người) bạn
- Bạn is used to mean "you" when speaking to someone of about the same or lower age, especially on public shows (in conjunction with tôi), or among young people (with tui or mình). It is also used in books to address the readers whose ages are not known (with tôi). It is rather neutral in style, and used when one does not want to sound either too intimate or too alienating.
