YOUR TEACHING EXPERIENCE
If you want to teach English in Vietnam, prepare yourself for a variety of options. Intern placements range from small kindergarten schools, private language institutions to secondary schools swimming with thousands of students.
It’s common for schools to have foreign English teachers. But in other cases, it’s not uncommon to be the only TEFL teacher. But don’t worry! With 120 hours of TEFL training under your belt, you’ll be fully prepared and racing to get into the classroom.
Teacher support is paramount. So, each school assigns a liaison figure to assist you in your journey teaching English in Vietnam. The focus of your lessons will be conversational English, tailored around a weekly timetable of 35 hours. Over five days, you will dedicate 20 hours to in-class teaching, with the remaining 15 hours assigned to lesson planning and marking.
In Vietnam, TEFL teachers get some of the most hands-on experience, as you lead most classes independently. Take on this challenge and see yourself grow in confidence and develop into a world-class EFL teacher.
