Participants have the chance to teach alongside Vietnamese teachers and be immersed in the local culture; allowing you to explore Vietnam in a way that a regular tourist cannot. Vietnam is culturally diverse and has some of the world’s more visually stunning landscapes. There are modern cities and laid-back beaches. The people are very friendly, and the history of the nation is fascinating. Not to mention the food this is simply amazing!
Included in the program is a 100 hour TEFL Certificate from the University of Toronto that will provide you with the necessary teacher training needed to plan lessons and teach conversational English; providing you with valuable international teaching experience, and the certification needed should you chose to apply for paid positions following your volunteer placement.
What to Expect?
You will arrive in Vietnam and be picked up at the airport by our in-country partners. You will enjoy a one-week all expenses paid orientation in Ho Chi Minh City where you will meet the other volunteers, learn basic conversational Vietnamese, and explore some of the city’s exciting cultural sites. Volunteers will then depart for their placements located throughout the country. You will then settle into your provided accommodations that will be very close to the school you will be teaching at. You won’t be alone! There are generally 2 or more volunteers at every school, and you will also be assigned a local mentor who will help you adjust to the local culture.
Your weekdays will be spent teaching conversational English to eager students, preparing lessons, and participating in extra-curricular activities. Volunteers are free to explore their new surroundings during the evenings and weekends to experience everything Vietnam has to offer from beautiful beaches, to bustling cities, to some of the best food the world has to offer. Upon completion of your placement, you will be taken back to Ho Chi Minh City to catch your flight, or you may choose to extend your contract, or simply continue to travel.
