Our program is about teaching English for children in the rural areas. Volunteers will focus on speaking and listening skills. Also enjoy the rural culture of Vietnam. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+

Our program is about teaching English for children in the rural areas. We-Vietnamese teachers will teach them grammar and vocabulary. Volunteers will focus on speaking and listening skills, so we need your help in this field. Because we want to help our students overcome the fear of learning English and be confident in using English in communicating. Vietnamese students are often shy and afraid of speaking English, even if they are good at grammar and writing.  

We want to create a multi-cultural environment to help students and local people have new views on their life and in terms of education, we want to help them to improve the English of rural students. 

We need you to help us with English practice not grammar which students can get from textbook.

Vietnamese children are usually shy and not confident in communicating, and we believe you can help our students overcome the fear of using English to communicate.

We are located in the rural area surrounding Noi Bai Airport. Don’t think because it’s rural it’s boring. Where we live it’s full of life and things to do. Also, the landscape is quaint and the air fresher than a big city like Hanoi. There all types of shops and restaurants nearby too. Friendly people eager to get to know you :)

Typical day

Working hours: Can be in the range from 8:00 am to 11:00 am (Lunch break) and then 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm

After getting ready for the day, we drive to the school or kindergarten and give class.

Once we finish, we have lunch all together at our home and then usually we take a nap ( We love our naps :) ) 

Then, if you still have classes in the afternoon, you go teach and come back home for dinner.

After that, is up to you to decide what to do with your free time :)

 The classes don't start sooner than 8am and don't finish later than 7pm. Many times you only work 1 hour and a half or 3 to 4 hours in a day

Often, you will have free time in between classes to go for a coffee or tea, or a meal if you like. Our area has lot of nice local restaurants with fresh food. Although we provide you with lunch and dinner every day, you are free to go and try the local gastronomy anytime you want :)
