Internship Programme: Vietnam  

Even with a turbulent history, the Vietnamese people have reason to smile. The country’s economy is booming, the beaches are perfect, and few nations have been able to rebound as successfully as Vietnam. With all theses good things, teachers eager to work in the ‘next big location’ are coming in large numbers to learn more about this unique culture and relax in style. Visit the remaining temples and sanctuaries of the ancient citadel of Hoa Lu. Surrounded by limestone peaks, this area is considered the most beautiful location in Vietnam. Explore the magnificent Mekong Delta and gain insight into this rural lifestyle as a traditional sampan vessel transports you along this historic waterway. Experience the culture of this fascinating country by understanding the food. Enjoy a guided tour through the market and discover exotic ingredients and fine spices.

No experience necessary, 24/7 in-country support, free accommodation, and a monthly salary. Vietnam is a great place to begin your TEFL journey!
