Vietnam TEFL Program Summary
Start your TEFL experience in Vietnam with 4 weeks TEFL training in either Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, then receive a paid teaching job in Vietnam. Vietnam has grown in popularity over the years as one of the most popular places to teach English – and there are many reasons why!
With high salaries compared to the low cost of living, exotic and tropical weather, beaches and islands to die for, and a growing TEFL industry (teaching English as a foreign language) that means there are more jobs than teachers – more and more people are choosing Vietnam over other locations to start their teaching journey and teaching career.
I completed my course at the end of May and 9 days later I was teaching in one of the most beautiful areas of Vietnam, Google "Ha Long Bay" people because if you are already tempted by Vietnam then those pictures will make up your mind, they did for me.

Key Program Details
One of South-East Asia’s fasting growing economies and an increasingly popular destination for backpackers and tourists of all kind – Vietnam is a country going places. Rich with beautiful landscapes, an incredible history, and boasting some of the most delicious food in the world – when visiting this wonderful country, you’re sure to have an unforgettable experience.
Bordered by Cambodia, Laos and China, it’s clear to see why so many people visit and travel around this extraordinary part of the world – it really is a place like no other. Located in the Northern region, Vietnam’s capital city, Hanoi, is a thriving metropolis, acting as the country’s political base and second largest city. With a population of over 6 million, it’s largest city, Ho Chi Minh City (formerly named Saigon) is located in the South-Eastern region of the country and really is the cultural and economic hub of the country.
This program consists of 4 weeks TEFL training, which will be a mixture of daytime study and some evening work and assignments. TEFL trainers will make sure you have everything you need to become a confident teacher of English (TEFL) in Vietnam.
Once qualified, the world is yours and you can use your TEFL certificate in other countries - there is no expiry date to the TEFL certificate. The TEFL certificate is externally accredited and accepted worldwide.
After gaining skills, making friends in this period is what it is all about. Spending so much time each day around the same people who are in the same situation means friendships solidify quickly. Everyone wants to support each other. It's one of the great benefits of starting your journey teaching abroad in this way.
During the TEFL training period, we give you all the tools, resources and contacts you need to secure a paid teaching job. Most jobs are secured within a few weeks after the course, and sometimes even shorter than that. A great benefit is to have our experienced in-country TEFL team at your disposal recommending good places to work, and where to avoid applying for jobs.
In Vietnam, most teaching jobs are in language centers, so typically you will be teaching adults, with some younger classes, depending on the employer. It's also common to travel to corporate locations and teach company staff English, as well as have private students to tutor.
Contract lengths are for around 6 months or more. Salaries vary, but are around the equivalent of 1200 US dollars per month. With living costs generally only about 600 US dollars per month, Vietnam is a very attractive place to go. For a clearer idea of costs, one of our teachers, Danielle, wrote a Vietnam Salary vs. Livings Costs Guide for you.
Anyone can come on this course and teach English in Vietnam. In terms of the job placement services, through our experience we know those who have a bachelors degree secure jobs within 30 days after the end of the training - and in most cases this is shorter. It doesn't matter if you are native or not native English, as long as you are fluent you won't need to worry about getting a job in Vietnam.
Those without a bachelors degree can also attend this course and for job placement we advise them to be as flexible as possible as to salary and location. Teachers holding degrees are preferred in Vietnam, but many employers will accept those without a degree. You may have to wait a little longer to get a job in your desired location.
Accommodation is provided and complimentary during the 4-week TEFL training period.
After training and when you are in your teaching job, accommodation is about 300 US dollars. Doing the course with others helps you to make friends and it's common to share accommodation with those friends afterwards when you start your teaching jobs.
The full price of the this program in 2018 is $1749 US dollars. This gives you a 4-week long, fully accredited TEFL training certificate in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, meaning you can teach English and get paid anywhere in the world, as well as job assistance from our team in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City and worldwide lifetime job seeking assistance from TEFL Heaven.

The course has given me the confidence and skills to stand in front of a class of Vietnamese children and teach them English. On top of that, it has allowed me to see and explore this fascinating country that is Vietnam.
TEFL Teacher Vietnam
Vietnam is one of the most interesting countries in Asia. With the beautiful Ha Long Bay in the north, to the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City in the south, there is plenty to explore.
With low living costs and high salaries for teachers, this is the number one reason people go to Vietnam, and stay there! This means there is a large teacher community as well.
Vietnam is ideally placed to visit other Asian countries like Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and even China. Flights are very cheap and take around one to two hours in most cases.
