When you arrive, our in-country team will greet you along with the other interns (unless you are required to complete a quarantine). After the one-week orientation, you’ll travel to your placement area by bus, train, or plane.

You will learn about Vietnamese culture, language, and society at orientation, as well as build friendships with other teachers over the welcome meal. Visits to a farm for a Vietnamese cooking class, the Cu Chi tunnels used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War, and visits to local museums that bring the country’s history to life have all been previous cultural excursions.

Master the local greetings, become acquainted with the local customs (including the key no-nos), put your TEFL abilities to the test, meet new people, and eat, a lot! It’s time to begin teaching English in Vietnam, whether at a private language school, a private primary or secondary school, or a government school.

Interns have been placed in cities all across the world in the past! As a fast-developing country, interactive whiteboards and digital tools are becoming more frequent in private language school classes. Public schools have larger class sizes and less technology than private schools, but they make up for it with high levels of student engagement.

Keep in mind that Vietnamese schools range in size from thousands of pupils in urban institutions to fewer than 100 students in rural primary schools.

You can expect to work 35 hours per week teaching conversational English. This equates to 3-4 classes each day, 5-6 days per week, for a total of 1825 hours of active teaching. You’ll have plenty of time to plan your next favourite backup lesson!

Congratulations, you did it! Be sure to congratulate yourself on your accomplishment. It’s time to choose whether you want to see more of Vietnam, travel, or teach (or both).

By renewing your contract, you may be able to extend your stay in Vietnam and teach for a longer period of time. As a confident and experienced TEFL teacher, your options are limitless.

What our teachers say

Niamh

After my final year exams, I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life but I knew I wanted to go traveling again. So I completed the TEFL course, saw there was an internship in Vietnam offered and booked onto it straight away. Coming to Vietnam has probably been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

    Outside the Classroom

    Outside the Classroom

    Aside from teaching English in Vietnam, there’s so much to explore and experience. Sail along the stunning Perfume River, gaze out over the famous rice terraces, or visit the world’s largest cave, Son Doong. Experience festivals such as the “Festival of Lights” where floating candles are sent down waterways to honour the river goddess.

    With the high monthly salary, you’ll live comfortably and have enough to explore the fascinating country. With bowls of pho for less than $1, the freshest and cheapest produce at local markets, and Saignon beer brewed next door (possibly not true), you will be eating and drinking like royalty for a small price.

    I have now completed the level 5 Diploma with TEFL Ireland and really enjoyed the experience. The course work was easy to follow with a good mixture of interactive elements and additional reading for self-learning. The assessment process was rigorous and challenging enough to be credible, with feedback and results returned in a timely manner. All in all, this course was very rewarding and the tutors Jessica and Olivia were always on hand to offer support and help when required. I took this course with a view to offering support to the migrant community in Ireland and I really cannot wait to get started now.

    The webinar on ‘How To Gain TEFL Experience’ was truly interactive and engaging! I can say that the speakers were knowledgeable, supportive, and always available to answers any questions the attendees asked. Several Jessica & Olivia covered several topics and gave insight on ways on how to gain TEFL experience; volunteering and teaching online. They also talked about the TEFL short 10 hour training course which will help teachers to deliver interesting and useful lessons to learners of all ages and levels in any classroom setting.Thank you!
