Vietnam is a spectacular country with a long history and ancient traditions. It has a plethora of historic attractions and old temples.

The majority of our teachers choose this location for the country’s wonderful natural beauty; the green rice fields in the north, or the fascinating bustle of the Mekong Delta in the south. We have been placing teachers into Vietnam now for several the years and it always seems to be a highly sought after location for our teachers.

Ho Chi Minh City (aka Saigon or HCMC) is where we work with most schools. This popular city with a population of over ten million has experienced phenomenal growth over the past 30 years to become one of the leading economic cities in Asia. It has such a high influx of tourists that it makes the city a mecca for cheap flights to and from there.

The majority of our teaching positions in Vietnam are with top tier International Schools in Ho Chi Minh City where we have been placing teachers with great success over the past few years. We do also work with a small number of carefully selected ESL Private language Academies but our main focus here is with professionally qualified teachers. We have a support team on the ground in HCMC who regularly visit our schools to ensure quality but this has never been an issue as the schools are very professional.

For our high end International Schools, teachers require professional teaching certification along with 2 or more years of classroom experience teaching in their chosen subject. Whereas typically ESL teachers are required to possess at least a bachelor’s degree and a CELTA (or equivalent in classroom TEFL) and have English as their native language.
