Just in case it’s not clear already, we’re not an employment or recruitment agency, so please don’t book with us if that’s what you’re looking for. We sell and organise amazing international travel experiences for the purpose of cultural exchange & education. If a trip has a paid work option, this is not mandatory to do and is there as a means to fund your travels only, and no fee is charged by us for this component. All payments you make are for travel and local support services. If you’re still confused, please get in touch.


Trip details

Our Teach in Vietnam trip is designed to get you travelling, living and teaching English overseas as smoothly as possible. We’re here to help you from the very beginning, offering step-by-step guidance as you embark on a path to work and travel as an English teacher abroad. We provide an internationally-recognised TESOL course, arrange local cultural experiences and provide you with the optional opportunity to work as a paid English teacher upon completion of your course. 

Arrive in Vietnam with the reassurance that you will be one step ahead of every other traveller or teacher in search of international experience in Asia. Once you’ve completed your TESOL in Ho Chi Minh City, you’re free to take it with you to many countries in the world and embark on exciting teaching projects abroad. Or you can choose to stay for longer in Vietnam and earn a local income with an optional teaching placement in various schools around the country. We’ll plan and organise all the surrounding logistics, our 24/7 emergency support team is always on standby, and our in-country partner will guide you throughout the entire journey and answer any questions that may arise.

Spend your time teaching in Vietnam, immersing yourself in the culture, exploring the breathtaking landscapes and jetting off to neighbouring Asian countries and leave the logistical stuff to us. We’re here to save you time, money, stress and even the risk of returning home early! Embrace a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel, live and teach in Vietnam and start making magic happen in the classroom of your dreams.

Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that you have the freedom to create your own adventure. But, for a rough idea, this is how most travellers spend their first few days: 

Week 1-4

Once you’ve touched down at Tan Son Nhat Airport, your transfer will take you into Ho Chi Minh City to your course accommodation. 

You’ll be introduced to your TESOL classmates and trainers and prepare to begin your 4 weeks of training before your optional teaching contract starts! You’ll get to experience some of the cultural orientation activities planned, such as a Vietnamese martial arts class, a cooking class to whip up the local cuisine, a viewing of a water puppet show and a visit to the Cu Chi tunnels and War Remnants Museum. You’ll finish off the week at a welcome dinner with TESOL alumni and other teachers.

Most people are presented with a local teaching contract within two weeks of finishing the TESOL course. In the unlikely chance you haven't received yours, our local partner won’t stop until you’ve got one.
