                      Vietnam

                      Teach English Abroad In Vietnam

                      Request More Info

                      Overview

                      Vietnam is emerging as one of the most popular destinations to teach in Asia. Vietnam offers high wages, comprehensive training and professional development opportunities, high-tech school facilities, and overall well-structured and supportive workplaces. There is a huge demand for native English speakers to teach in Vietnam alongside Vietnamese teaching assistants. We assist with training and qualifying teachers to thrive in Vietnamese schools. We then assist teachers with navigating the numerous school options to find a reliable placement with a reputable school that will be the best fit for the candidate.

                      Teaching in Vietnam is an amazing opportunity to explore an exotic and culturally rich country that is growing rapidly, yet still maintains many of its ancient customs and landscapes. Participants will teach throughout the country in a variety of different urban and smaller town environments in well-equipped private language schools or in public schools.

                      From innumerable rice paddies and the Mekong river delta in the south to the highlands and beach resorts of central Vietnam, and the French colonial architecture and diverse cuisine of northern Vietnam, there is so much to see, do, and taste, in this wonderfully diverse country.

                      • $1,409 includes all services and benefits below plus a week of orientation (accommodation included).

                      Requirements And Qualifications

                      Item Required Notes
                      Accent
                      Applicants must be fluent in English and have a clear native-speaking accent. They don’t necessarily have to be native speakers, but native speakers are preferred.
                      Other requirements for non-native English speakers include:
                      • A non-native teacher with a degree in teaching English or;
                      • A non-native teacher with a degree in English language and a teaching certificate or;
                      • A non-native teacher with a degree and a teaching certificate and an English certificate at C1 level or equivalent.
                      Age
                      21-50
                      Teaching Appearance
                      Smart casual
                      Typically collar shirts for men and conservative dress for women.
                      Background check
                      No criminal record (with the exception of traffic or other minor violations)

                      We will aim to place them together but they should be flexible on placement type
                      We have been able to facilitate couples living together in the same location. We will work with candidates to find a placement option that will work for them to stay together. If two in-person placements close to each other aren’t available then we would endeavor to place either both or one person in an online role where they can work remotely and choose where to live so they can stay together even if their friend/partner has a fixed location at a local academy.
                      Medical
                      Good mental and physical health. 
                      In order to get a work permit, a health check is required once in-country. It consists of a chest x-ray, giving a blood and urine sample, an eye exam, and a general check-up (blood pressure, etc.).
                      Start Dates

                      2022

                      • November 28

                      2023

                      • February 20
                      • May 1
                      • May 29
                      • July 24
                      • August 21
                      • November 27
                      Applicants are accepted at all times of year on a rolling basis.  However, the recruitment focus is from the months of April through December, with the busiest times being June through September.  The best months to come over are June, July, and August, as it is the peak time of year for recruitment across all schools, there are also a lot of public-school positions to fill during this time due to it being around the start of the school year. January and February are not considered good months to start teaching in Vietnam due to the Vietnam New Year (Tet), when parents tend to conserve their budgets and private school enrolments are typically very low.
                      Educational Qualifications

                      Applicants must possess at least a bachelor’s degree or equivalent. The degree certificate must have the word ‘Bachelor’ written on it. The degree doesn’t necessarily have to be from a native English-speaking country, but you must be able to get it legalized. 

                      Using a Master’s Degree is also acceptable but it must also say Masters on it.
                      Working Hours
                      Approximately 18-20 teaching hours per week, these will mainly be evenings and weekends if placed at a language center.
                      TESOL
                      Minimum of a 120-hour online or in-class TEFL or TESOL certification. Online certificates can be accepted, but the candidate must commit to at least a 6-month contract and must be flexible in terms of location and placement preferences. Online certificates that say “online” on them cannot be accepted. If there is an in-class component to the course, there may be more flexibility in placement location. 
                      The most ideal online TESOL certificate holder is one that has one or more years of teaching experience already, as they will have the most options in terms of placement.
