The low-cost living and laid-back lifestyle are very appealing to travellers, making Vietnam a highly sought-after destination. The country is known for stunning places like Halong Bay, filled with ancient architecture, dotted with cascading rice fields, and renowned for its delicious food. You will be making a huge impact on your students’ lives while having the time to explore – then you’ve come to the right place.

    How It Works

    Our TEFL teaching English in Vietnam programme couldn’t be simpler – and you’ll have our team of experts to help you every step of the way.


    Make sure to take the most of your time off!

    You probably can’t wait to plan your trips around Vietnam during your free time. If you can visit either; Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi, we highly recommend it as each city offers a unique perspective on Vietnamese history and culture, providing you with a more complete understanding of this country.



    You will be teaching in either a private language school, private or government primary/high school, or a university. Your students will range in age from 4 years old to 18+.

    Your teaching hours will be usually from 8 am until 4.30pm. You can expect to be teaching 20-25 hours a week and weekly admin hours to plan your lessons.  You will be given plenty of training on approaching and creating the best lesson for your pupils.

    Our Vietnam programme is a nationwide placement and you could be placed anywhere but you will always be surrounded by 1 or 2 other interns in the same area/accommodation.  Placements for August 2024 are centred around Hanoi and Haiphong in Vietnam’s beautiful and more traditional north.
