Vietnam teaching volunteers

Come and enjoy stunning Vietnam where you will help children to improve their futures by teaching them English. Get to know lots about the vibrant and diverse Vietnamese culture when you immerse yourself within this warm and welcoming community.

Heading to the Nghia Tan Primary School, you will be met with the smiles and friendly faces of around 3000 pupils, who begin learning English aged 6. There is very little opportunity for these children to meet foreigners with whom they can practice English, so your presence will be welcomed with open arms. 

"I could not have wished for anything else with my visit to Vietnam. Teaching in the secondary school was out of this world and the children were so eager to learn and I will miss them so much."

Or you might head to Pascal Secondary School, located in a disadvantaged area, and offering a learning environment for students from all different backgrounds. There is a keen focus to learn English for these older pupils to enable them to develop in the future and improve their communication skills which may even help them to acquire later employment.

Our English teaching volunteers usually teach for about 20 hours per week in the primary school, and 20-30 hours per week in the secondary school, from Monday to Friday. Throughout your day you will be teaching different groups of classes, with various aged children.

You will plan and teach fun and interactive lessons that develop the children’s confidence and conversational skills that will make a huge difference!

Volunteers for this project need to show maturity and also must enjoy working with children. You need to be over 18 and be fluent in English, whilst also being willing to learn more about the country of Vietnam and the different styles of teaching and working there.

The children are eager to learn and you will find that they all have a real thirst for knowledge which helps to make your teaching experience as rewarding for you as it is for them. With smiling faces and positive attitudes, their excitement shines through everyday.

Volunteers are encouraged to be creative in their approach and where possible make use of games, songs, art, sport and music.

There is no availability to volunteer during June, July or August as this programme follows the school term times.

You will have long weekends to go and explore what this beautiful island has to offer. Visit ancient temples, take a trip on a junk boat through Halong Bay, visit botanical gardens, wander The Old Quarter or just enjoy some of the stunning scenery around.
