Extremely rewarding experience of Teaching English for the lovely children. This program provides you amazing local cultural exchange with local host and kids. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+

Teaching in Viet Nam is one of the best way to help the local children. Since the Vietnamese government opens it's door to foreign tourists, students are given a chance to study other languages such as English in schools. The quality of English language teaching, however, needs improvement. The program provides you a very rewarding experience in Viet Nam to help improving English proficiency of the children in the countryside from the age of 4-13 years old by using English as the main medium of instruction as a temporary teacher. 

You play an important role in the contribution for the children as a temporary teacher whether during your gap year, career break or during a volunteer vacation. The impact you have on the kids will be obvious, but you will also be part of a much larger network of international volunteers which is making a positive and ongoing contribution to the wider community. A fix-curriculum will be provided while at placement and you may have to teach either at a public kindergarten, primary school or language centre.

While volunteering you may be involved in:

  • Creating lesson plans
  • Managing English conversation and grammar exercises
  • Teaching formal English classes
  • Playing games and singing songs with the children
  • Other childcare tasks as needed

Typical day

You will leave the volunteer centre between 7:00am-12:00pm, depending on the schedule of the school(s) or centre(s) where you are placed. You can expect to spend between 3-4 hours teaching throughout the day, 20 hours on average a week. You will be expected to work five or six days a week and will have the weekends off, giving you plenty of time to go on excursions around the country or to relax and unwind.

Free-time activities

During day off, volunteers have free time to relax and explore the local area or other parts of surrounding Ha Noi or Northern Viet Nam. There are plenty of things to do and see near Hanoi, including palaces and museums, trekking through national parks and caves, and relaxing in the city garden. For those volunteers interested in traveling further afield, there are many great destinations to choose from, including Ha Long Bay, Tam Dao National Park, Sapa and Ninh Binh which is famous for its' beautiful scenery.
