The three sign languages indigenous to Vietnam are found in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Haiphong. They are part of a sign language area that includes indigenous sign languages of Laos and Thailand, though it is not known if they are related to each other. There is some influence from French Sign Language. There are attempts to develop a national standard language, Vietnamese Sign Language.
