Vietnam Internship

Teach English in Vietnam

About our programme

If you want to teach English in Vietnam – a country filled with ancient art and architecture, dotted with cascading rice fields, and renowned for its delicious food – then you’ve come to the right place.

In Vietnam, each school recognises the importance of learning English. English is considered the working language of the world, paving the way for an economy and population that is more and more international. Therefore, the demand for TEFL teachers has never been higher. But don’t overlook the country’s sheer beauty and history when deciding to teach in Vietnam. It is a traveller’s paradise.

Join dozens of fellow TEFL teachers on this paid internship for an unforgettable experience. Not only will you gain a lifetime qualification and hands-on teaching experience, but also the opportunity to live in one of the most enigmatic and enchanting countries of Southeast Asia.

All teachers arrive in Vietnam for a one-week orientation where you’ll learn about living, teaching and, most importantly, travelling in Vietnam. Our dedicated in-country team will be there to support you every step of the way. So get ready to join your new TEFL family!

    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. However, don’t fret. With 120 hours of TEFL training under your belt, you’ll be 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 the majority of classes independently. So take on this challenge and see yourself grow and develop into a world-class teacher.

    How it works

    Before you go, you’ll have an application form to complete, a video interview, submit all your documents and then you’ll be on your way to Vietnam.
    1. Apply
    Apply now and schedule your interview
    2. Interview
    If your interview is successful you will then need to provide documents
    3. Documents
    Congrats on passing the interview stage, now its time to submit all your documents: Degree, Police Record, Copy of Passport.
    4. Go to Vietnam
    If you have successfully passed the interview and submitted all necessary documents you are ready to go!

    Outside the classroom

    Aside from teaching English, there is so much to explore and experience in Vietnam.

    Sail along the perfume river, visit the worlds largest cave of Son Doong or gaze out over the famous rice terraces. Scooting around the countryside is a piece of cake. Alternatively, hop on a cheap flight to Cambodia, Laos or China.

    It’s time to make Southeast Asia yours!


    With rent-free accommodation and a monthly salary of $700 you’ll live like a king or queen. With bowls of pho for less than $1, the freshest and cheapest produce at local markets and Saignon beer brewed next door (possibly not true), Vietnam is calling for you.
