Explore and Teach English in Vietnam
Paid Vietnam TEFL Internship
Get a TEFL qualification for life and spend 4.5 months living and teaching in Vietnam's colourful, vibrant community.
Fancy joining an intrepid group of aspiring teachers and gaining some amazing professional teaching experience in a country that's bound to blow your socks off? We can help.
The Paid Vietnam TEFL Internship is a great way to earn some cash whilst immersing yourself totally in a brand new culture, experiencing day-to-day life like a local - and you don't need any previous teaching experience! We'll train you up before you go, and provide expert support once you touch down to make sure your experience is as fun and runs as smoothly as possible. Your meals and accommodation are included, and you'll even get an expert orientation and some basic Vietnamese lessons to introduce you to life overseas.
What will I get up to?
First, you need to get TEFL qualified to make sure you're totally prepared for starting teaching. Study your 120 hour online TEFL course in your own time before you set off - it's super-convenient, and the online format fits snugly around your life so you can study wherever you are, on your phone, laptop or tablet. You'll learn all about teaching English abroad, and get the chance to test your learning as you move through the course.
Once you touch down in Vietnam, our team will meet you and transfer you to your orientation hotel in either Ho Chi Minh City (that's HCMC) or Hanoi. You'll meet your fellow aspiring teachers, learn all about Vietnamese culture, pick up some local lingo and join a 20 hour classroom course to give you some extra practical teaching experience so you're totally prepared. You'll also get the chance to explore all the amazing local sights, markets, clubs, bars and restaurants, and benefit from a guided tour to pick up some insider tips from our in-country staff.
Now, it's time to start teaching! We work with schools in major cities all over Vietnam. For 4.5 months you'll be teaching English to enthusiastic learners of all ages (from 4-18 years old, so you'll get some varied experience), living on the school grounds in shared accommodation with your fellow interns. Meals are also included.
Spare time is yours to spend exploring the local area and beyond. Your $700 monthly stipend is enough to live really comfortably by local standards, so get exploring! Check out Halong Bay, the Cu Chi tunnels, check out temples and amazing landscapes and more, and stuff yourself with amazing local food like pho and bun cha.
You'll get your $700 completion bonus once you've finished teaching, and it's up to you how you spend it.
