There’s no doubt about it, teaching English in Vietnam and elsewhere in the word is a wise career move. The demand for dynamic, qualified English language teachers is extremely high. So high, we offer guaranteed employment to graduates of our TESOL/TEFL course held in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
All of our TESOL/TEFL trainers have been where you are now and understand where you want to go. Moreover, we have specialist staff based at each of our training locations who’ll work with you, side-by-side, to land that all-important first teaching job. Over the past 10 years we’ve had great success placing graduates of our TESOL/TEFL course in paid employment, mostly within 14 days of completing the study program.
1. Every application for our TESOL/TEFL program is thoroughly vetted.
2. We offer a quality product that is Australian Government accredited and internationally recognized.
3. Our TESOL/TEFL trainers and tutors are qualified, professional educators who know how to equip people with the skills they need to embark on a career path teaching English.
4. We have an established network of partner schools and language centers built up over many years working in the TESOL /TEFL sector.
5. Trainees are made aware before they join our program that they have obligations that must be fulfilled – successfully completing the necessary assessment tasks and conducting themselves in a professional manner are just two of these obligations.
So, what is the bottom line?
Typically, jobs teaching English in Vietnam allow our TESOL/TEFL graduates to take home somewhere between US $1,000.00 and US $2,000.00 per month, depending on where the teacher works, how many hours they work and the availability of non-income benefits such as accommodation, transport and free utilities. Most employers quote and pay a net salary and then deal with the local Taxation Department on teacher’s behalf.
With the cost of living in Vietnam being a fraction of what it is in most developed countries, English language teachers in this part of the world can realistically expect to save at least half of their income without cutting corners. Teaching English as a second language certainly provides stable, ongoing employment, pays a decent income and allows for an excellent lifestyle.
Hanoi, the second largest city in Vietnam, is a special city with a unique feel. Known as “Little Paris of the East,” Hanoi retains its charm and romance from the influences of French-Indochina. French-influenced architecture and avenues are juxtaposed with traditional Vietnamese culture filling its streets. Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam but has a more relaxed atmosphere than its larger southern counterpart of Ho Chi Minh City. There are countless things to do in Hanoi such as eating street food, enjoying a Vietnamese coffee, and jogging and exercising around Hoan Kiem Lake in the center of the city.
While Hanoi is characterized by a warm humid subtropical climate, it still experiences four distinct seasons.
Summer: May – August – Humid climate with abundant rainfall, commonly referred to as “monsoon season.”
Autumn: September – November: Humid climate with decreased precipitation
Winter: December – February – Cloudy and foggy days
Spring: March – April – Warm, clear spring weather. Most popular time for tourism

The local area is safe and easily accessible by public transportation.
