HO CHI MINH CITY & PAID JOB VIETNAM

– FEATURES & BENEFITS –

FULL TEFL CERTIFICATION 

The TEFL course in Ho Chi Minh City consists of 4 weeks, and normally runs in the daytime, but can also lean into the evenings at times. Once you have passed the course, you will have a full TEFL certificate meaning you can teach English anywhere in the world.

ACCOMMODATION IS PROVIDED FOR THE 4 WEEKS OF TEFL TRAINING

Accommodation is complementary during the training period. After the course, most employers will assist you in finding accommodation near to the place of work. Accommodation is normally not included when offered a teaching job in Vietnam, but it is not too expensive at around 165– 200 GBP per month for a single room apartment. You can save money if you opt to live with other teachers, if it is available.

A GUARANTEED PAID JOB TEACHING ENGLISH

Our team in Ho Chi Minh City will assist you in getting the right job. The job guarantee is exactly that – we guarantee that you will get a job. We will show you where to look for jobs and have links with many agencies and language schools in Vietnam. It’s common for people to secure a job between 0-30 days after the TEFL training. We make sure that through the Skype interview that you will be the right kind of person for teaching in Vietnam, so if you get through that stage you will have no worries. Commonly there are more jobs than teachers available!

Jobs pay around 20 USD per hour on average and are between 20 – 30 hrs per week. Universities, colleges and corporate jobs can pay more per hour and jobs in more rural areas pay a little less. Jobs are mostly available in language centres and are all year round, although there are some positions in primary and high schools. Language centres provide teaching to all ages, from primary classes to adults, and you can be required to teach any day of the week, but most jobs give two days off per week.

TRAIN WITH LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE

There will be another 5 or 6 trainees on your course who are all in the same boat – they have come to Asia to train in TEFL and gain life experience by exploring another culture. In this environment it’s easy to make friends. You can play hard as you study hard in becoming the best teacher you can be.

Many people you meet in the first few weeks of training become friends for your lifetime of teaching in Vietnam and beyond.

LOW COST OF LIVING

You can normally save about half of your salary each month after paying living costs, which can mean savings of 500 – 1000 USD per month! This is one reason why many teachers decide Vietnam is for them – they get all the benefits of living in a new country and are able to save for their future as well.

Accommodation is generally 280 USD per  month and some contracts come with accommodation included. You can eat in restaurants 3 times per day for the whole month and not spend more than 300 USD. In Vietnam you can spend without worrying that you will have no money to save.
