Your trip Itinerary

Our in-country team will greet you and the other interns when you arrive. 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 and build friendships with other teachers over the welcome meal.

Learn the regional greetings, become familiar with the regional traditions, put your TEFL skills to the test, and make new friends. It’s time to start teaching English in Vietnam, whether at a government or private school, a language school, a primary or secondary school.

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).

What our teachers say


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!

    Having finished my 180 TEFL course I found the 10hr Virtual by Michelle Kaufmann very useful to get a taste of what it is like as a student of a TEFL course and the barriers and confusion that they may experience not being taught in their own language. As a class we were given demonstrations on how to overcome these barriers and also an opportunity to put them into practice. It also highlighted the areas I need to work on as a teacher. Wonderful advice given, appreciated it. 😊
